Project Highlight: Sam the Cooking Guy
Grilling and entertaining outdoors were at the forefront of Sam’s mind when he contacted us at System Pavers to help improve his backyard. Sam not only wanted to bring more value to his home but also to his audience. You see, Sam hosts his own cooking show and livecast and was confined to his indoor kitchen, which can only offer so much. Other than the occasional trip out to his portable grill, Sam, like most homeowners, primarily used the backyard for sitting. With the help of our design and installation team, Sam the Cooking Guy was going to have an outdoor kitchen and entertaining area of his dreams.
To start, System Pavers met Sam and his wife right where they were in their design process – ground zero. While Sam and his wife knew what appliances they wanted, they didn’t know what the end product would or should look like. The System Pavers’ design team encouraged them to think of their dream outdoor living space.
Once drawings were made and finalized, stone and countertop materials were all hand selected and Sam’s outdoor kitchen island was built to the exact dimensions of his EVO grill, Caliber grill, sink, and ice maker. In addition to keeping the area cool and shaded, a pergola, fan and cover were installed for filming any time of day. Lighting was also installed to allow for entertaining and grilling for when the sun goes down. Just like Sam’s recipes, this yard was a true masterpiece in the end and designed around his taste!
