If you are a foodie or it is your goal in life to be the ultimate host, an outdoor kitchen makes sense as your next big upgrade.
Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits
All year long, you can enjoy the great outdoors by hanging out by your fireplace or built in fire pit. These features are especially appreciated during the colder months when you just want to snuggle up and swap stories with friends and family. There are plenty of configurations and designs available for this type of feature. You could go for a wood-burning pit or a gas fireplace. It all depends on your outdoor space’s style. While it serves its function as a heat source, it can also be considered the focal point of your yard. This is where folks are going to be drawn to gather. When building an outdoor fireplace of fire pit for a client, we make sure to take the existing structure into account. We want to build features that will match its surroundings and not stick out like a sore thumb.
Fireplace builds are, of course, more substantial than fire pits. They need to have a wall (though it does not need to be enclosed), while fire pits can be set up pretty much anywhere as long as it is a safe distance from the main home. On top of the fire feature itself, we can also build storage solutions for firewood and coal. For more modern builds, we can include gas fireboxes that will blend seamlessly with the rest of the structure. If you are looking to make a statement or you just want to upraise your property, a fully-functional backyard is the way to go.
Outdoor Living Services FAQs
Can I have an outdoor fireplace in my screened patio?
Yes, you can. Although, we have to make sure that the space is properly ventilated, otherwise it is going to get plenty smoky in there.
How do I choose a spot for my outdoor fireplace or fire pit?
Before we build one for you, we have to do an on-site evaluation to decide on the optimal spot for your new feature. Many things have to be taken into account, like overhead clearance, wind direction, the potential footprint of the feature, and how much digging can be done in the area. We also have to make sure that we don’t build such features atop utility lines.
Does an outdoor fireplace require a lot of maintenance?
It depends. If you decide on a wood burning fireplace, then yes. You will have to regularly clean out the remaining ashes. If you decide on gas logs, you will also have to get rid of the soot. If you decide on an electric fireplace, then there’s very little maintenance required if at all.
