Well it was time to recycle the huge amount of Merbau left over from the old outdoor room from the old house. The outdoor room had been lined with cedar and the O.D. kitchen used a fair bit of the recycled merbau, but the outdoor room needed "roomification" and rooms need things like walls but should be in keeping with what an "outdoor" room should be. So with merbau on hand we went to work on building defining walls arround the existing brick pillars and steps.'s the result...

Act as a wind break and have really set the room as a room.

Bitchin Outdoor Kitchen

2 days of hard labour and whalla, we have an outdoor kitchen! Used ikea stainless steel soft close cupboards / drawers from the old house plus the stainless steel bar fridge that was collating dust in the storeroom. I recycled the Merbau decking from the old house that was used as backing, kick boards etc, so all in all the exercise only set us back around $300, which converts to something like a $2,000 exercise without my labour of course. We picked up a $99 hard wood bench for only $50 as it was the last one and after some intense Chinese negotiation.. respect!

Great to have this done and dusted ready for the fly season. Again the Bosch professional cordless nail gun was a godsend. So it's tools down and ready for room reveal.
