Galveston Idea House cabana

Outdoor Shower Cabana

Galveston homes―particularly those built close to the water―are raised to avoid flood damage. Our team took advantage of the space below the house to create a fabulous spot for entertaining, with just the dunes separating it from the sandy beach.

The dining area includes a teak table and chairs, while the outdoor kitchen boasts more than just your average grill. "You can fix your entire meal and enjoy it outside," Susan says. "You don't have to go up and down the stairs 25 times to get things, because you can have it all right there."

She also designed a cabana for desanding after a play day in the surf. "At the beach, everyone loves outdoor showers," Susan says. "They're fun, and it's great not to bring all the sand inside."

Cooking outdoors has never been so carefree. With a grill, several burners, and a prep sink, this stainless steel kitchen helps you elevate the outdoor dining experience from blasé to gourmet (or just make especially good hot dogs). Best of all, it's on rollers and separates into smaller units for storage.
