One of the latest trends gaining popularity in the Twin Cities is adding an outdoor fireplace in your back yard. An outdoor fireplace is the center piece of a gathering of family and friends, place to enjoy a meal, a romantic setting, or a quiet place to read a book or just enjoy the quiet and privacy of your own back-yard.

No matter how beautiful or well decorated the inside of your house is, it is the outside that leaves the most lasting impression. At outdoor innovations, We build and design beautiful functional outdoor fireplaces of the highest quality. As you think about adding an outdoor fireplace this summer there are a few things to think about in advance.

  1. location of the fireplace. You can locate it off the deck, patio, or in corner of the yard. You also need to consider wind direction. It should always be cutting the wind and not in its direction.
    2. Material – Outdoor fireplaces can be built in brick, stone, or concrete. We will walk you through the process and help you select the best color and texture and look for your fireplace.
    3. Wood or Gas – Wood is the most natural but needs more attention and can be a little smokey. Gas is smoke free, but also requires pipeline.
    4. Storage- if using wood or a place to store other items, storage is something that needs to be considered.

Fireplaces are our specialty and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have and walk you through the process.
