Rethinking the Traditional Kiwi Barbeque

How to embrace the humble barbeque as a built-in timber design feature.

The trusty BBQ has almost always been treated as an afterthought in our homes.

Traditionally in New Zealand a BBQ is stored down the side of the house, tucked away out of sight for winter, only to be dragged out and cleaned coming into spring.

Many forward thinking designers and home builders have started to rethink the status quo and there is a trend now to “design in” BBQ areas that embrace the humble BBQ, and leverage the outdoor room.

Abodo’s Vulcan Screening and Vulcan Cladding make a perfect natural feature to highlight your new integrated BBQ.

To pique your interest here are some feature BBQ ideas:
