Stone Outdoor Fireplace in Charlotte on patio in porch

As a professional remodeler and general contractor in the Charlotte area, we get to see all types of work done by “handymen”. These are the weekend warriors who are saving money by constructing projects themselves. Some are quite impressive, most look like they were done by someone who does not build full time.

So what about trying to tackle an Outdoor Fireplace or Firepit? There is more to it than stacking bricks or stones upon one another or even more than purchasing the firebox that is prefabricated. The real difference in addition to craftsmanship is the design of the flu. You will find smoke does not automatically go where you want it. There is a science and art to designing the chimney’s and the pros know it! Firepits are often major saftey hazzards and eye sores. When you want to do your own handy work, think twice when it comes to the outdoor fireplaces, its worth it to hire a pro!
