This patio kitchen is perfect for backyard cookouts with friends, and the fact that it is covered makes it great almost year round. I love a yard that has an outdoor kitchen because that increases what you can do with your yard by a wide margin. As you know, I really favor designs that allow a space to be versatile. What would be a cold addition might be an outdoor fireplace or a fire pit for those late night cookouts when it gets cold. This is the kind of space that you can enjoy with friends and family on as regular basis.
