Outdoor Fireplaces, Fire-pits, and Bar-b-que Pits
We have a great selection of design ideas and prebuilt models of outdoor fireplaces and fire-pits. No backdoor oasis is complete with at least a touch of water and fire. From a design point of view, fire adds a visual element that has an instinctual attraction for all of us. It is difficult to explain, but people enjoy being around an open flame. We help Austin homeowners find the right built in fire-pit, outdoor fireplace, or fire feature for their unique patio setting.
Small gas fire features are a great way to introduce flame into your patio design. Table top versions by Bull, like the one pictured above, are small and very affordable. They put off enough heat to counter chilly evening temps, yet not so much that that can’t be enjoyed on warm nights too. If you have access to permanent gas lines, these units are basically maintenance free. Propane tanks are small and inexpensive to refill, yet can fuel small patio fires for a multitude of hours.
Large fire-pits and outdoor fireplaces can be built in an infinite number of shapes, sizes, and locations. Another choice you will need to make is whether to burn wood or gas. Both fuels offer advantages and disadvantages, but it seems that people are pretty positive about which is their favorite. We offer both and personally enjoy either type. Let one of our qualified installers discuss your options, and help you find the right patio fire feature for you.
