How to Build an Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit

How to Build an Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit

For decades, stories of all kinds have been told around the fireplace.  Something about looking into the wood burning logs and embers soothe and relax everyone.  Today’s modern day outdoor fireplaces are nothing like fireplaces from years ago. Backyards n More partakes in the evolution and modernization to fit the personalized needs of the user. Fireplaces are now built to last the weather and salt conditions. This is especially important along the Florida coast line.  Even though fireplaces are still built with a stone mason in mind, they are customized with electronic programmable gas burners, ceramic gas logs, and array of shapes, sizes and designs to fit your backyard theme.  Each fireplace has a story to tell. Different materials and styles make up an individual’s vision. There are three options of fire foundations to choose from when planning your fire pit.  The first is the old fashion way using a good portion of wood, such as Hickory or Oak.  This is a classic use because of the smoky smell and the characteristic close feeling of a traditional fireplace. The second source is propane. Propane requires additional planning including measurements, permits and costs. The third options is Natural Gas.  This source is a great source of fire and very economical to run both economically and environmentally. Once you have decided on the fire source, it is important to help select the burner type right for you. Backyards n More recommends that you eliminate natural wood and select a burner in either Natural Gas or Propane. Gas pits need a gas line that must be trenched and piped to an assembly point. This...
