Opposite the kitchen, there is an indoor dining area which opens out to the deck.A new staircase connects the main living area to a media room, guest room and office area.

Directed by Luc Besson and starring Bruce Willis, Mila Jovovich and Gary Oldman, this is a fun and fantastic ride that is as great to watch today as it was back in 1997.

All the pieces you need are easily transported in the grill and when you're all done the coal bucket can easily be emptied and the grill easily cleaned.
