Archadeck of Charlotte is an outdoor living design/ build company that does over 2,000 individual projects yearly. We design outdoor kitchens as one of the many products that our customers want for their outdoor living space.
A common question we get is whether you need a special grill or can you utilize your existing grill for an outdoor kitchen? The answer is most definitively that you can use your existing grill. We can achieve this with one of two designs in mind. If you currently have a free-standing grill, we can simply “park” it wherever is desired and build a cabinet around it so that you can take it out when you want to replace it without having to destroy any masonry work.
The second way we do this is to dismantle the grill from its current assembly and fit it into a custom opening it the cabinet we design. Below, you will find photos of these concepts. Actually, we are transforming your existing grill into the aesthetics of a drop in grill without the cost of having to purchase a new one. To ease your mind, the only thing we have to do to replace the grill once it has mortar and becomes a drop in grill is to cut the mortar and order a new grill provided you want the same size!
