One of the most requested designs we are receiving now is integrating an outdoor fireplace into a screen porch or covered patio. We have become quite proficient at it and it makes the room a year around living space here in Charlotte (except today!). Designing and building an outdoor fireplace and understanding the appropriate building codes makes Archadeck of Charlotte the logical choice to give you some great ideas. Take a look at our photo gallery at http://www.charlotte.archadeck.com or our other web site at http://www.archadeckofcharlotte.com. You will love the designs!
