I have been in the planning stage to build an outdoor kitchen for a year ro so. I recently found one on You tube that is very much like what I am planning. I think guy has done a very nice job.
My area is mostly flat and I will be using a paver floor to reduce fire hazard.
Take a look at the video. You can skip closer to the end to see the tour.

I have bought a 7500 lbs. (35) excavator which has a blade on the front, for my place and have found it to be a ton of help for all kinds of things. Digging, lifting, clearing stumps, moving a connex, ... I use it a lot for clearing trees, I pick them up and use it like a swabuck to to keep the logs out of the dirt. It run all day on a couple of gallons of fuel.

If the ground is frozen. Chain it up and go.
It took us about 1 hr. to drag a 20 footer, 2.5 miles last week end. We plowed the snow off the trail 2 days earlier and let the trial set up, and then hooked a chain to the front corners of the box and to the back of a dozer. We got stuck once going up a hill when the snow started piling up in front of the connex. so we unhooked the chain, moved the built up snow, and we off again. This was the 2nd one I moved into the property. We broght the first one in last winter.

From the pic's I'm not sure the excavator would be a good choice for your place.... not many trees to move, I'm thinking a tractor with the attachments would be better.
