New Press Release


Years ago, homeowners who wanted to build an outdoor kitchen thought little of taking out a home equity loan or putting their purchase on plastic. But now that most people have had to tighten their budgets a bit, one would think that people would have just cut back on all the luxuries–since top-of-the-line outdoor kitchens can cost upwards of $30,000. Actually, that hasn’t been the case at all. Record numbers of homeowners are building outdoor kitchens, both for their own personal enjoyment and to increase their home’s value. However, buyers are being creative by going the DIY route when it comes to installing the components.

Buyers don’t need a degree in engineering to design and build their own kitchen. Anyone who can read an instruction manual and operate basic hand tools can do the work, and save 50 to 80 percent off of the retail price of having professionals create and install it. The main problems that many people used to run into were building the steel frame and applying the stucco finish.

For some people, the idea of having to tackle these problems by themselves made them procrastinate for years. Fortunately the team at DIY BBQ offers solutions to these problems so that the project can truly be a DIY one. Frame kits directly from DIY BBQ at affordable prices. Once the kits arrive, the homeowners simply need to follow the easy-to-read directions in the assembly manual as they put together create an outdoor cooking area that will be used frequently.

By using a do-it-yourself kit, people can save thousands of dollars off of retail and contractor prices, and makes an outdoor kitchen affordable for more people than ever before. The steel frames that DIY BBQ sells are designed by professional builders and made of high-quality steel framing, so homeowners can be sure that they are getting a product that is properly constructed. They use ViperStuds which have a design and performance that is superior to that of conventional flat studs. The steel frame also makes it easy for homeowners to make small adjustments or install pluming for their outdoor sink.

Homeowners can easily design their own backyard kitchen in four steps. First, the size and shape of the kitchen must be determined along with the dimensions of the island. Second, ‘L’ islands require a bend, so the decision of using a 90-degree angle or 45-degree one must be made. Next, appliance cut outs are required so that the owners existing appliances fit inside the frame. Finally–upgrades such as footrests, a split bar counter or a back splash–can be chosen.

DIY BBQ offers a complete line of outdoor kitchen items and accessories including BBQ Islands, frame kits and appliances.
