"Three pallets and some trallvirke. It was the starting point for the outdoor kitchen which would house the inheritor of the grill. But then grew kerstin's and Olas project with wall, ceiling and storage. "
"Kerstin and Ola are not the type who likes to sit quietly in a deck chair on days. It understand pretty soon when you talk with Kerstin. "
"She is a designer that has released a series of books of her own, runs its own shop with a café, gallery and finloppis. As relaxation, she loves to renovate old houses. "
"his summer House in Järlåsa just north of Uppsala, is the waterhole where she and my partner relaxes and gets the new force. But there is also constantly new projects. "
"When the house was comfortable and a winterized conservatory and a guest house built to the old farm from the late 1800s, was uteköket summer projects. "
"– We always have new projects in the pipeline. But I have thought about this in probably 20 years now, so it was nice to uteköket finally became of. And we don't regret it a second! says Kerstin Landström. "
"”Decking to uteköket was the best” "
"From the beginning it was mostly thought to be a permanent place for the grill, with a bench for cooking. "
"– I took home three pallets that we used for the kitchen counter. And we thought long and hard over whether we would only add the gravel or if we were to build a trallgolv. Now we are very happy that we came to the conclusion that a trallgolv was the best, " she says. "
"The three purchase of the pallet were cut of to get the right height. The severed ends – which was saved – was later revealed to be the perfect storage shelves for crockery and books. "
" I like recycling and flea market. All dishes that we have in uteköket I have bought at a flea market. And grillens blue tone has been determine the colors, " she says. "
"the Bench got to be a kitchen island"
"It finished uteköket was a small outhouse, with the transparent roof which lets through light, but still protects from the rain. "
"– While we worked and grew as well as the project. I realized that we probably needed a wall with shelves for storage also. And soon we realized that we probably needed to have a ceiling also. It is so much more convenient to be able to have cookbooks, and other protection under one roof. "
"Ruth is the one who usually sketch on the projects thought of, first, a wall against which the bench could stand. But when put Ola stop. "
"– He said ”I don't really want to stand out and grilling and staring straight into a wall, either”. So when did bench become a kitchen island instead. And it was great. "
"Water, they pulled up on the easiest way – with an extension hose to the garden hose. A hotplate is good to have also, then everything is not suitable to cook on a grill. So until further notice, they pulled a skavsladd with the electricity out to the uteköket and köksplattan. "
" From the beginning we had planned to make it easypeasy. Without both water and electricity. But it was lucky that we got a hob anyway, just when we were ready, it was grillförbud because of the drought. "
"”A mighty rumskänsla” "
"During the summer that is gone, they have been using their outdoor kitchen almost every day. – It was very much thanks to the roof, actually. It made a big difference and gives a great rumskänsla. You are stuck inside. Inside stuck out. "
"– And it is great to cook on a hob when you have water nearby. So now I have realized that I need to make a cookbook about the cooking. Just think about how many cookbooks there are about grilling, but have you seen a single book on the boil? "
"A cookbook is already on kerstin's track record. Cooking is one of her passions. Is there anything you regret or that you think you should have done differently? "
"– The only thing I regret slightly is that we do not la any fibre cloth in trallgolvet, because we had not thought it would become such a large building. So now, grow it up on some grass between golvtrallens planks, which you get to walk and pull up. But otherwise, we are incredibly pleased!"
