Though fireplace season might seem like its eons away, fireplace building season is right around the corner.
In this episode of The Marc and Mandy Show, Mike Farnum from shares tips for building outdoor wood burning fireplaces.
Why install an outdoor wood burning fireplace?
A wood burning fireplace is a great way to add a cozy retreat to your outdoor living space. To boot, a fireplace can be a selling point if you’re thinking to sell your home in the near future.
What are some things to consider before installing an outdoor wood burning fireplace?
- Location. When you’re mapping out where you’d like your fireplace to be, consider proximity to surrounding structures. The chimney on a wood burning fireplace needs to be at least ten feet away from any combustibles.
- Longevity. How long do you want your new fireplace to last? A forever fireplace can be built using 100 percent masonry, and can encompass a cinderblock structure, filled with concrete, with full bed natural stone cladding. A fireplace built like this will last generations. Less durable and more cost-effective fireplace renditions might use stick frame or steel frame structure, clad with artificial stone veneer.
- Style and design. Whether you’re partial to rustic, modern, or medieval, you can bet there’s a fireplace design style that’s best suited to you and your home.
