For this project, the client desired a simple outdoor fireplace to site around and relax and enjoy during their retirement years. To tie the fireplace into the corner, I designed a sitting wall to continue along the rear edge of the fireplace and to wrap around and to grade along the front corner by the side of the house. The fireplace is constructed using a Stone Age 36" Arched Lintel Standard Series kit mortared together for the frame. Then the firebrick gets placed on the inside of the firebox and the lick and stick stone veneer is applied with a mortar mix. For this particular fireplace, we decided on a stone veneer only readily available in the eastern region of the United States, New Haven Limestone. This provided a unique and naturally location specific material that the client enjoyed and created a very clean outdoor fireplace.
