Fireplaces and Fire pits: Extend the Season Outdoors

Welcoming ambience and warmth are created with fireplaces and fire pits that extend the Fall and Spring season for residents in the greater Washington area. When thinking about adding this feature to your property consider the following:

Location & Function: Is this to be a focal point for year-round gatherings and entertaining or a featured element of a larger landscape?

Stonework Style & Type: What colors, size, and style should the stone or brick be?  Is the style of this feature casual or more ornate with decorative features?

Gas or Wood Burning: Do you want to smell the wood burning or turn it on for instant fire?  There are pros and cons with each to be considered…

Additional Features: Where will you sit? Does the space call for a wall or patio? How about night lighting?
