The barbecue area is the place in the country that you try to equip as quickly as possible. What is clear: cook outdoors, and then make food intakes right outside – great pleasure. The organization of this place involves a canopy that will protect from the scorching sun and precipitation. And all this can be done with your own hands.
Constructively canopy may be different – from a small, formal to high standing on the supports. The last option will cover not only the brazier, but also as a whole recreation area next to the barbecue. Usually a canopy for the mangala is located separately, but where the place is actively blowing out by winds, it is often attached to the house or other buildings on the territory. But according to the safety technique, such combination is prohibited: fire measures are broken.
There is a solution: the barbecue area can build one / several walls – they will resist the wind. The place with the help of wall protection will be cozy. The height of the roof of this building needs to be made not less than 2 m, the material for the support is required of the fire-resistant. Wooden support poles are covered with special store and mount away from the source of fire.
The main purpose of the canopy is precipitation protection. If it is suddenly raining, the preparation of lunch in the barbecue zone may be questionable. In order not to depend on the weather conditions, it is necessary to build a barbecue.
Where to post?
The barbecue area in the country is usually localized from a leeward side, otherwise the smoke from the furnace will be felt in the house. In the courtyard between the children’s playground and summer kitchen should be a decent distance. But too far from the private house of the barbecue area is not built, because it is also not very convenient to run towards it with products across the street.
The barbecue area should be smooth, ideally kept. If it is grass, he will very quickly reappear. Wonderful if non-reflex is a water source. Even a garden stretched hose will fit.
Options for places for organizing a barbecue area.
- Patio. It is usually a place not far from the house, but still in the dwelling smoke from the furnace does not penetrate. In the courtyard there is enough space to lay the platform with tiles or brick. Place is unnoticed for third-party eyes.
Privacy – the main advantage of the courtyard.
- Terrace. Since one wall here is ready, the construction of the cooking zone will cost cheaper. Canopy also build hardly. If someone has questions, the terrace is a platform or a horizontal, or a bit inclined, made of a log or a bar, is limited by a ledge.
True, the brazier inside the terrace will not put. But somewhere nearby – you can.
- Territory in front of the house. It is impossible to retire here, as the territory is visible. But close to the house (convenient to run for the products), you can build a beautiful canopy, it will boast before the neighbors. But if the house is fenced with a fence, there are no problems at all.
In short, the choice is. The main thing is that everyone is convenient, safe and main aesthetic selection criteria were also observed.
Equipment of territory
Barbecue area can be open and closed, spacious and modest. The main place is called a platform, and all that is located on it – and there is an equipped barbecue area.
There can be simultaneously:
- the brazier is a focus for cooking, made usually in the form of a box on legs, inside which coals are smolder;
- Kazan – a metal boiler with a downstream, in which it is very convenient to cook many dishes, and the most famous, of course, pilaf;
- Grill – In the original it is a hot wardrobe, in which large pieces of meat are prepared on a grid or spit, a garden grill can be stationary and portable;
- Barbecue – a special oven, the function of which in the preparation of meat on the heat of smoldering coal.
Your barbecue area can be collected independently, and you can order a whole complex at once, where there will be either all of the above, or individual items from the list.
If it is decided to make the cooking zone open, it will never be hot there. The smoke takes wind, and the canopy protects from the scoring rays. This territory can be described beautifully with the help of proper finishes, competent lighting, well-selected mortar furniture. True, this option is intended only for warm season.
An interesting decision was borrowed from the design of the Patio Western Houses. So called the courtyard, a packed tiled, in which there is a barbecue stove, and benches, and a small pool, and even flower beds. That is, this is a whole area for recreation, which will be a favorite place in all households. But such a project requires serious investments.
Option, closer post-Soviet person, Summer kitchen. One name talks about the purpose of this zone. In the hot summer days cook in the house – one torment. Another thing on the street, and there is no feeling of suturing space, stuffiness, and the fresh air appetite is completely different.
Psychologists found out that the level of appeal in open summer kitchens grows: even the most simple dishes seem more appetizing.
Summer kitchen is structurally located on the roof, fixed on the poles. In fact, it is canopy to the barbecue area. In winter, the stove is closed, furniture with equipment is carried into the house. If the canopy is only above the stove, and the rest of the zone (dining room) is open, the project is obtained by budget.
The easiest in the processing and installation material – wood. For the roof, you can choose inexpensive and durable polycarbonate. Sheds from it are raised quickly and easily. Canopy is installed either on the wooden legs treated with rotting and burning, or on metal supports. You can make a brick pillars: the process is longer, but the design will acquire greater strength.
Metal supports (aluminum, for example) will meet all fire safety requirements. In this they won a bar. And if it seems that metal legs are insufficient aesthetic, perhaps they just need to paint.
Choose such a color that will not be a foreign spot on the plot. Most often this is black, but options, of course, are possible.
Arbor usually decide to build away from the main dwelling. This is a structure with four walls, roof and foundation.
An option such a barbecue area on the site may be the most expensive, even if you do without craftsmen and do it yourself. But, most likely, this extension will be the most beautiful.
The design will be stationary, so even a small gazebo should be an organic main home. So, you need to preserve the stylistic similarity of buildings.
- A classic barbecue gazebo is simple, but at the same time is exquisite, it is inherent in the clarity of lines. For the construction of such buildings, brick, concrete, ceramics, natural stone.
- Country-style gazebo – this is a cozy structure, more often rectangular, based on the use of wood.
- A gazebo in oriental style is often performed in the form of Japanese pagoda or Chinese canopy. Bright colors dominate here.
- Well, one of the most trend style directions – ethno. ONLY in design only natural colors and materials. Stupid inherent Laconicity, even some brutality. He is close to nature and simple.
There are a lot of options: from olive style with suspended vases and decorative wooden boxes for flowers to fun and cheerful boho blinding with their paints and dynamic.
Drawings Arbor is easy to find on the Internet, take the basis. Calculation can be performed in numerous online services.
Foundation Device – Mandatory Stage. Without it, the design is likely to see soon. To pour the foundation, you need to remove the top soil layer, leave a dense ground, remove roots from the ground. Next marking is transferred to the ground. On the corners of the gazebos in the ground, pegs are clogged, tightened with a rope around the perimeter. On the markup will have to roll out the trench.
The walls of the trench must be vertical, bottom – smooth. On the bottom falling asleep at first sand, then crushed. After the coupling of these layers, it can be taken for formwork, it is performed from the wooden boards knocked down. Then mixed concrete and poured into the trench. After the readiness of this stage, the floor is mounted according to the drawings. It is usually rigels with wooden lags, all boards are processed by antiseptic.
Walls can, for example, reach only until the middle of the arbor. Then the perimeter at a predetermined level is fixed by bars-railing. They join the racks of the “spike-groove” method, are strengthened by bolts, screws or brackets. And the space between the timber and the roof is laid by a fine bait.
But this is just one option. Also, the walls can be made of the same polycarbonate, blockhause or wooden wallboard. You can make the so-called living wall of curly plants.
Rare option are the walls of cane and vines, curtains (imitation of the tent) and stone walls.
There may be single, double, four-tight, tents, dome, concave, pyramid. Any roof consists of a carrier system and roofing overlap. The main load is subject to the rafter system. The cutture allows the load evenly to host the columns of the arbor.
The roofing materials are preferred tiled, fiberglass, slate, polymer plates, rubberoid.
The gazebo can be soaked with the compositions that will make it more resistant to the effect of the external environment. They (or additional processing) will transform the structure for the better. Means Paintwork, Morid, Toners.
Selection of materials is based on a combination of a gazebo with the main construction and on the criteria of the style in which the design is constructed.
How exactly the zone of barbecue with a canopy can look, you can consider in detail the following selection of examples.
- Cozy, small and at the same time simple version of the barbecue zone. Everything is placed everything you need. The site at the same time and dries in greenery (visually seems like this), and is harmoniously zonied, and well protected by an unusual shape canopy.
- A large territory where everything will fit for cooking and subsequent trapes. The plot turned out to be light, because the main material of the canopy was the translucent polycarbonate.
- A very pretty recreation area, which and a small barbecue stove will know, and everyone will sit, talk – too. Canopy is large enough, tightened from bad weather.
- And here is a gazebo with a duplex roof and lattice walls. Here is a stove and very close to the dining area, quite comfortable.
If desired, the place can be made by decorative plants in the pots, in the evening light the lanterns and hang on the lattice walls of the garland.
- Very interesting solution – although not budgetary, but worthy of consideration. The cooking zone with a barbecue accommodates something like a bar table, but the main dining room is behind the wall.
- Stone and wood design always looks convincing and natural. Next to the stove adjacent two zones: rest and dining. At the same time there may be many people.
- Modern barbecue area on a beautiful platform – It is interesting for the continuation of the table for cooking on a bar counter. In the evening it will be especially cozy.
- Fully large closed summer kitchen under a huge canopy. From here you can leave except for the night, sleep in the house. And even a media frame with a TV and a sofa fit on such a well-thought-out territory.
- Compact, but a good solution. Everything looks very miniature, but there is everything you need here. A small canopy, the dining area is fully rendered on open air.
- On the same platform – stove and hearth. Only the stove is protected from rain, and the hearth – no. But this decision is quite interesting.
