I bought a house with a very small kitchen. When building my shop, I put in an outdoor kitchen. It is 15’X30’, cypress and tin cabinets, walls and ceiling, porcelain tile floors. Propane stove and wood burning heater.

That is cool! Welcome to LJ. (if you want your pics upright just crop them a tiny bit on your pc.) Someone told me that trick.

Looks like a great space to hang out in

I have seen this type of metal sheeting used on a lot of projects, but this is one of the best uses I’ve seen. It goes real good with the style of cabinetry you used. Excellent job !!! Mel

I saw people in this area, south Louisiana, using rusty tin and rough cypress. But, I wanted a cleaner look. Hence, milled cypress and new tin. I used the tin on my ceiling, as door panels, and as wainscot around the room.
