Where to Place Outdoor Fireplaces
The thing about outdoor fireplaces is that they can pose some safety threats to your property. In fact, there have been stories about ill-placed outdoor fireplaces causing homes in North Carolina to get razed by fire. Now, surely, you wouldn’t want your home to be reduced to ashes, right?
Here at Envisions, we know exactly where it is safe and ideal to place outdoor fireplaces. For one, it’s important for outdoor fireplaces to be placed considerably far from your house to avoid the possibility of fire. Second, they should be constructed at an area where air moves freely to facilitate efficient fire-burning. Also, the front of the outdoor fireplaces must be placed at area where the natural breeze wouldn’t affect the fire.
Outdoor fireplaces can also be placed near a cabana or gazebo so you could warm up while having conversation at night. Some North Carolina homeowners, meanwhile, want their outdoor fireplaces to be placed near their pool, so they could easily access the warmth provided by the fire.
