The father in this family was a consumate grill master who taught us a thing or two about the fine art of grilling. ¬†Quite possibly the Mona Lisa of grill counters was the result of our collaboration, complete with an Argentine gaucho grill, wood pellet smoker, gas-fired grill, “Sonic” ice cube machine, pull-out freezer drawers, wood log storage, etc. ¬†Add to that a polished cement top and waterfall sides, reclaimed boards from a Montana barn and rustic brick work completed the masterpiece.

If that weren’t enough, add to that a gorgeous new patio, dining area with a built-in bench, firepit lounge, lounge pod and chaises, the yard transformed into an entertaining mecca.

Shout out to the mother of the family who kept us supplied with incredible home-made cookies!
