Outdoor Fireplace in Chicago
In the Chicago area, we cannot escape the cold of winter, but perhaps the best way to extend the usable season for our outdoor living space is the addition of an outdoor fireplace. An outdoor fireplace can also introduce a strong vertical element to the landscape, help define spaces, provide a space to mount an outdoor television, and function as an aesthetically impressive focal point.
Outdoor fireplaces can be customized in size, shape and construction materials to fit your personal wishes and intended purpose. As with indoor fireplaces, they can be configured as gas only, wood burning or gas starting with wood burning.
Proper installation of outdoor fireplaces is critical. A great deal of weight is being put on a relatively small footprint. The foundation must be solid and deep enough to support this through the seasons. Most villages also have specific restrictions on where the structure can be located.
