Davy, good idea but way to late, sucker is to heavy. I can pick it up one side at time and slide something under every foot. I am looking into SS flat bars possibly OR poly/ss or ALum bushings

Home Depot sells 4x8x16 solid block, Might use 8 of them. They should hold the weight no problem

Ralph, what's under the pavers? Dirt or concrete?

Also, does the island have it's own floor ?

The island is on top of 6in of concrete except for the front 4 inches of it. The front 4in is on top of pavers. The pavers are on 6inches of RCA and then a bed of concrete. I had to do this due to the location of the utilities lines.

Okay, so when you open the doors under your grill, the floor is the pavers?

What is RCA?

Looks like the floor inside the island is lower than the pavers. Not sure how you'll keep water from running in there. Especially if you don't have a roof over it and divert water away from it.

Well guys, I did the Home Depot 4in concrete blocks. Went smooth, no issues. Now I nthink I have a new problem though. Due to increase in height my island is now 42in high WITH the countertop. Might be to tall now ?

That's duct tape, Kevin.

Can you use 2 inch blocks?
