You leave a lot open for what you want to build. Are we talking Natural gas or Propane? Do you have any of the materials yet? Are you planning on incorporating a left handed smoke shifter?

Probably the biggest design factors will be what grill grates you use, and what burners. Both of these will need to be supported internally as part of the grill, and will need to be hard to remove so they don't walk off, but easy to clean.

You'll probably want to make it about 36" high(standard counter height) to the grill grate. In any case you'll need to prepare a base by digging out the expected footprint of the grill to 8" deep.compact the ground and fill with ~3 inches of compacted pea gravel. That then gets filled with concrete troweled smooth and level. Then you build the brick enclosure, that will contain your grill parts and support your grates.
