Outdoor Living

Here in Northern Michigan we are desperate to enjoy every bit of sunlight and want to make the absolute most of our outdoor spaces. We enjoy the spring, summer and sometimes fall months with the sizzle of our outdoor grills. However, the typical backyard these days doesn’t just incorporate a barbecue grill and a seating vignette, now it offers an all-encompassing living area designed to have the same amenities as interior spaces. More and more, outdoor areas include a fully-functional outdoor kitchen, fireplaces or fire pits, cozy seating, advanced lighting and heating systems, and so much more.

The kitchen remains the focal point of casual entertaining, only today the kitchen has moved outdoors. Having an outdoor kitchen makes life easier for those who enjoy grilling their meals and entertaining outdoors, making your backyard patio an extension of your family’s living space. The popularity of outdoor living has homeowners focused on the color, style and design of the whole entertaining space, rather than a traditional stone barbecue island where guests watch the host cook.

As these traditional backyard patios evolve into luxurious outdoor living spaces, Brown Jordan Outdoor Kitchens leads the way. The Quiet Moose collaborates with them because there is nothing that can’t be done – literally. With almost 400 choices in cabinet sizes we can accommodate almost any kitchen layout or challenging footprint. We consider every project to be our most important – no matter how large or small. Our designers will work with you throughout the entire process to bring your custom outdoor kitchen to life from the initial design to installation.

Beyond the cabinets

Today, more people than ever are taking advantage of backyard outdoor living, bringing their culinary skills and entertainment needs along with them.

Investing in the beauty and function of an outdoor entertainment space provides exceptional value to your property and more enjoyment for family and friends without ever leaving the home.

Beyond the Cabinets in an Outdoor Kitchen


Countertops for the seasons

The two elements that bring together a kitchen, indoors or outdoors, are the cabinets and the countertops. These elements need to hold up against time and climate, but also have the right look and feel to complement your landscape. We can accommodate nearly any type of countertop you want in your space, but not every countertop is built for outdoor environments. While granite, concrete, and soapstone are familiar countertop materials, it’s important to remember to use the correct material for outdoor applications; one that remains structurally sound and maintains its beauty over time. We can provide an endless variety of styling options to fit your creative needs.
