83% of home owners have a greater desire to be home after building a fire feature.
That’s huge. There are few investments that can make such a powerful impact on family life.
Let’s look at a few reasons why you may want to consider building a fire pit in your backyard.
Fire pits have been used for thousands of years to safely build fires in areas where you don’t want the fire to spread.
The most primitive campground fire pits are created by stacking stones to form a ring.
Today’s backyard fire pit is an outdoor living feature (usually in the shape of a ring) with elevated sides that safely contains a fire in your backyard.
While cheap metal fire pits can be purchased at big box retail stores, they typically last no more than a few years.
Many home owners are opting for a more permanent fire pit installation built from stone, brick or stucco.
Your new fire pit can be fueled by wood, natural gas, propane, etc.
