Design Ideas: Outdoor Fireplaces & Fire Pits
Continue your outdoor fun into the evening hours by adding firelight to your open-air space
Published: April 16, 2014
|Cabin days can sometimes play out with everyone going in their own direction, whether that be sunning on the beach, fishing on the water, hiking in the woods, or cozying up with a good read. One thing that I have found in my years of cabin experience is that as the day comes to a close, everyone comes together again. Where? Around the fire. There’s something special about socializing with family and friends while roasting marshmallows and watching embers burn. Many outdoor fire pit and fireplace options are available, whether you’re keeping it simple or going all out. Take a look at these outdoor living space designs to see what inspires you.|

This fire pit is made up of large boulders that accent the natural beauty of the surrounding setting. The rocks also block the wind and keep the heat in close. The addition of Adirondack chairs and large stone walkway slabs follow with the rustic theme.
