Adding an outdoor fireplace to your home is a surefire way to add value to your home while creating a one-of-a-kind outdoor living space you’ll want to enjoy year round!

There are a number of benefits to adding an outdoor fireplace to your home. The following are just five of the many reasons to consider building a new outdoor fireplace this fall.

1. Add value to your home

An outdoor fireplace adds a highly-requested feature to your outdoor living spaces. Not only does this help your home stand out, but it also adds resale value! Outdoor fireplaces have one of the highest return on investments, or ROI’s, of any home improvement project.

2. Create a unique feature

Outdoor fireplaces are custom built; this allows you to work with our trained masons to create a totally unique feature that is perfect for your home. Whether you want the look and feel of a Mediterranean retreat or the sleek aesthetics of a modern design, we can custom-create the outdoor fireplace of your dreams.

3. Enjoy the outdoors year round

While Tennessee may not be known for its extremely harsh winters, we often experience significant temperature drops during the fall and winter. An outdoor fireplace allows you to continue to enjoy your outdoor living spaces even when others are forced indoors. Whether it is a chilly fall evening or a cool winter day, an outdoor fireplace creates heat and can help you stay comfortable outside.

4. Entertain in an outdoor living space

A new fireplace can be used as the focal point for your outdoor living spaces. Centering seating around an outdoor fireplace helps your guests stay warm and comfortable as you entertain. Likewise, an outdoor fireplace creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere for outdoor entertaining.

5. Take advantage of additional features

There are a number of things you can do with your outdoor fireplace that you may not be able to do indoors – particularly if your indoor fireplace burns gas or pellets. Outdoor fireplaces can be used to cook food and snacks; whether you’re roasting hot dogs or melting marshmallows for s’mores, you and your family will create delicious meals and unforgettable memories.

Outdoor fireplaces also give you the opportunity to try new types of wood. While soft woods such as pine, cherry, or hickory create too much smoke for use indoors, they can be ideal for an outdoor fireplace; this allows you to experiment with different firewood as these fragrant woods add extra ambiance to your outdoor space.
