  • When Ryan Edmonds designs an outdoor kitchen, it’s typically installed on a home’s back patio. But this white-painted brick space is a backyard stand-alone structure separate from the home and the family had a specific goal in mind when putting it all together. “This family renovated an old house and there was no option for an outdoor kitchen on a back patio,” said Edmonds, a builder for Vertical Construction in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. “If you build something like this that’s not right up close to your house, then once you’re out there in the kitchen, you want to be able to stay out there.”

Edmonds had to reconcile that reality with the property owner’s vision of an entertainment and cooking area by the pool. That’s why he prioritized spaciousness and storage while also including leathered granite countertops that can weather the elements and a fireplace for those cool fall and winter evenings. The result was a stunning and versatile outdoor kitchen a short distance from the home.
