Outdoor fireplaces create warmth, atmosphere.

Now more than ever, my clients are requesting outdoor fireplaces for their patios and outdoor rooms. They are not just for northern climates any longer; an outdoor fireplace can be used in the Southern region to ward off chills in spring, fall and even winter, lengthening your options for outdoor entertaining. Such fireplaces can be as simple as a gas fire pit in rustic or contemporary settings, or they can be as impressive as majestic towers that match the main house and are topped with copper chimney pots. For the avid cook, I usually recommend they add a grill and even a brick oven to their outdoor environment. If that appeals to you, just make sure that your grill or oven is connected into the fireplace flue to eliminate smoke in covered terraces.
