2020 Fall Newsletter
Fall Means Fire Pit Season
Crisp cool evenings paired with earlier sunsets allow time for relaxing around a fire pit or fireplace in your outdoor living space. Fire pits can be wood-burning or gas and offer an instant cozy atmosphere and centerpiece for entertaining or a casual gathering with family.

In addition to being installed in open-air, fireplaces can also be added on porches or under decks to create an additional three-seasons living room area. See the photos below for a gorgeous gallery of recent fire installations we have done for clients.
