Backyard Fireplaces

Adding an outdoor fireplace to your property will provide you with a beautiful backyard focal point as well as a perfect space to relax.  A backyard fireplace will help you:

Up Your Resale Value – Who doesn’t love a warm fire on a cool night? In fact, creating outdoor living spaces is one of the most popular trends for home sellers looking to set their property apart from the competition.

Keep the Bugs Away – Bugs can be a nuisance, especially here in New England. A fire can be a great way to enjoy the outdoors without swatting at mosquitos and other pests while trying to enjoy some relaxation time.  Wood-burning backyard fireplaces are superb for keeping mosquitoes, gnats, and other annoying insects away.

Outdoor Fire Pit

Some of the best times can be spent around a fire pit with friends, family and good company. Not only is it great for warmer months, but also it extends your party and entertaining space to the outdoors year round! A fire pit brings heat, ambiance, and entertainment all to one place. You can also see an increase in property value from a fire pit as it adds character and creates additional “living space”.

"We didn't want to let too much time pass before writing to you. We are so pleased with the patio and have already used it many times in the past few weeks. We always had a nice retreat in the woods - but now we are actually USING the space to read, cook and relax. Your team was a pleasure to work with on the project. Dave kept everything moving and we felt very well informed throughout the build. He went above and beyond to make sure that our property was well cared for and that the patio ultimately fit our vision. Jimmy was the other key component to the team. He is an extremely hard worker that was very dedicated to the project and easily served as our onsite contact when Dave was unavailable. We cannot compliment either of them enough! From the beginning, we have loved your vision for this project and we hope to work with you again in the future. Thank you for creating our new backyard oasis! It's perfect." Read more comments
