Outdoor fireplaces or fire pits will enhance any outdoor space. On a crisp cool autumn night, or even a chill winter night, gathering around a crackling fire is a perfect way to spend the time. Summer evening conversations with friends or roasting marshmallows with the kids can be great times around a fire as well. Fortunately, today’s outdoor fire pits and fireplaces allow us to enjoy those experiences in our own backyard. These features can be enjoyed year-round, with their built in ambiance and absolute functionality. Burkholder offers many options for either custom-built outdoor fireplaces and fire pits. Each option offers quite a few feature choices.

Fireplace or Fire Pit?

Both are great ways to integrate a fire feature into an existing outdoor space. Since they can be wood burning or gas powered, the choice is often about personal preference, size limitations and cost. A fire pit is more interactive and will serve more people. A firepit is often the center of attention with people of all ages gathered around in conversation. A fireplace is more of an aesthetic feature.

Convenience and Access

Outdoor fire pits allow guests to sit on all sides, whereas a fireplace only allows seating at the front. For larger groups, a large round custom fire pit is the perfect way for everyone to face each other for conversation, and stay warm at the same time.

Circular benches can be built in the same material as the fire pit, like stone or brick, or individual outdoor chairs can be purchased to assemble around the fire. Benches or chairs provide easy access to a fireplace’s warmth as well.

Custom fireplaces, while allowing for a rustic addition to an outdoor patio, kitchen or even pool area, are regulated more strictly than fire pits and fire tables if they are wood burning. Because a good deal of smoke is produced, building codes require that they have chimneys be taller than nearby structures.
