Outdoor kitchens have really taken off over the last several years. And many of them can really do it all, from grilling to baking. Add to that other outdoor living elements, like comfy furniture and a television in an area that opens to a patio or porch, and it’s an outdoor lover’s dream.
The floor plans below were chosen for their built-in outdoor cooking or eating areas. Many of these homes have a built-in grill. Given that farmhouses are a natural architectural style for an open country setting, these outdoor kitchens are a great way to take in the surrounding countryside. Or even just the fresh air, if you’re in a less-rural setting.

This home has a grill on a deck right off a covered patio. In this space, there is also built-in seating and a spa area on the deck. This home has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
2. Brick Farmhouse by Dream Home Source
This home is interesting in that it combines a breakfast area with a sunroom. The sunroom is located between two porch areas.
