When I purchased my 2nd home, we were informed that years ago HGTV had designed the backyard. It was gorgeous, full of vibrant colors, and to be honest- required a lot of upkeep.
One night at dinner, my husband mentioned something in passing about building an outdoor kitchen. It was so out of the blue that I honestly did not put a thought to it.
Then when he mentioned it again, I humored him and asked him what it would look like. His answer blew me away.
