I third Marc’s point about the turbulence.  I’ve seen and felt the issue when it gets west in the afternoon, especially if it is stronger.

Related to that:  As much as I’d like to connect the kitchen area to the shade structure, I’d be hesitant to do that roof-wise.  The farther North we take the roof, the worse we’ll make the turbulence in the approach pattern, I suspect.  Although, I’ve had more issues when exiting the wind-shadow just at time to flare than with direct turbulence.  Your mileage may differ.

If we are building it from (almost) scratch, I’d suggest wiring it during the build, if possible.  Outlets available would be nice.  A minor thing, but a nice touch.
