Back in 1978, a built-in Jenn-Air grill shoehorned between a chimney and a wall might be something.

Fast-forward a few years, and it had long outlived its usefulness for Clearwater, FL, residents Ron Klinge and his wife.  The space wasn’t usable, and Ron wasn’t really sure how to proceed when it came time to replace the grill. 

Ron’s wife had seen a few things on outdoor kitchens on HGTV and DIY Network, Ron says his wife asked him, “Why don’t we look into a good grill and some cabinets.”

His search led him to Dave Waring of Soleic Outdoor Kitchens in Tampa, who took what had been unusable space and… Well… Let’s just say it changed Mr. and Mrs. Klinge’s lives.
