Small Outdoor Kitchen Throws Style a Curve in Houston
This small outdoor kitchen is big on function – and style.
“This compact outdoor kitchen island has a really nice look, with materials I haven’t really used before,” says Wayne Franks, owner of Outdoor Homescapes of Houston.
The exterior walls, he notes, are a dry-stacked Tuscan Valley limestone. The countertop is Normandy granite.
“It’s unique because of the shape,” explains Franks. “We used a special galvanized steel track stud that’s fastened to the concrete. It’s segmented and pivots to follow the radius shape of the existing deck.”
A “skin” of HardiePanel (fiber cement siding, which can handle the high-heat of grills better than wood) is then put over top of the frame. This creates a cabinet for appliances and storage.

Built into the small outdoor kitchen island are a 30-inch RCS commercial-grade grill with a double burner and outdoor refrigerator:
“The curve helps this kitchen meld into the outside border of the flagstone walkway, for optimal traffic flow,” says Franks. “And I really love the look of the limestone stone. For a smaller kitchen, this one really shines with style.”
