Outdoor Fireplaces

Outdoor Fireplaces and Fire Pits and the EPA

I have been in the masonry business since 1974. One of the many projects I loved to design and build were Masonry Fireplaces. Most fireplaces we built were indoors and attached to the house up until 1991. The EPA changed all this in 1991. We can build a fireplace in your backyard but you cannot attach the fireplace to your home with the opening facing inside.

Of course if you want an authentic Fireplace, I can still build one custom designed for you. As long as it’s in your backyard and not attached to the house where it would be used inside the house. You’ll have to have a gas unit for the inside.

Maybe an outdoor fireplace with a waterfall is something that would excite you. Or convert the Fire pit to a Water Fountain in the summer months and back to a Fire pit in the winter. Or maybe you want both functioning at the same time.

Outdoor Fireplaces
When you get my age and as we tried to point out to the EPA back in 1990, you may consider using the fireplace on holiday occasions only, because the wood can become labor intensive when you get older and you would like your life simple, without the fuss of gathering wood and such. Or you may just convert to a gas unit because it’s simple and like the fancy remote control for that instant gratification and high tech you grew up with in your life. Thus the natural reduction in fireplace use without the EPA forcing the issue. AS FOR ME, I STILL LIKE WOOD FIRES THE BEST!
