I wanted to get some idea / confirmation on having a gas / water connection in the alfresco for a BBQ, as part of a new build plan, we asked the builder to put outdoor electricity points as well as gas / water / drain for sort of a small outdoor type kitchen, this is what the builder has gotten back to us with
Image 1 has PowerPoint highlighted in red
Image 2 has gas/ water and drain highlighted as blue and also the proposed BBQ / outdoor kitchen placement
Also note that we do intend to have a cemented walkway as well bect to the walls of the house
Based on the diagram, have a few questions, if anyone has experience with that
1- What is generally the best placement for placing gas/ water for BBQ?
To me this doesn't like a good spot from the builder, I was thinking to ask the builder to move it close to the power point
2- In case if it's not possible to move the gas point , what options do we have to connect the BBQ?
Piping along the brick wall? Underground?
3- Assuming that we also need to have the walkway built, and assuming if they are able to move the gas / water pipes closer to the power point
do we connect via underground pipes before the walkway is done Or do we get the walkway done and there's some other way that the pipes
can be connected to the BBQ (without the pipes running on the floor as a trip hazard)
4- This one is uncertain at the moment, but if we put in a gas heater in alfresco, is it possible to run BBQ and a gas heater both from the same gas pipe?
Any insights would be appreciated
