The installation of a terrace fireplace guarantees that the sociable and beautiful evenings in the open air do not end with the onset of cold weather. The terrace fireplace spreads a pleasant and comfortable warmth in your outdoor area, which invites you to linger.
Cozy atmosphere by a terrace fireplace
If you are planning to set up a masonry, solid terrace fireplace, then the patio floor must be examined in advance in terms of carrying capacity and robustness. The high weight of such a terrace fireplace, for example, could lead to problems with a thin wooden floor covering. The same applies if the fireplace is to find its place in the garden:

In the meantime lighter models can be found on the market, which are even mobile with pre-assembled wheels. However, a stone underground is preferable to the heat. Most lighter chimneys often include accessories such as a grill, so you can spend a barbecue with friends in addition to the cuddly warmth.
Build terrace fireplace yourself
The specialized trade or DIY store offers a variety of kits that you can easily build a patio fireplace yourself. It even addresses your own wishes to make your fireplace as individual as possible: pick stones yourself, plaster and paint to your own taste.
