Some people ask if it is possible to make your own patio fireplace and the simple answer is yes. But like most things in life it isn’t always simple. The result will depend on the style of fireplace you want, the size, your current property and obviously your DIY skills. If you have never undertaken any DIY projects before, you do not want to get involved with building an outdoor fireplace. You could end up spending a lot of money and not have anything worthwhile to show at the end of your hard work. Instead engage a professional or buy a readymade version from Amazon.
Before you get carried away with installing a patio fireplace you will first need to check your building regulations to see if they are allowed. Some communities prohibit them entirely or limit the style and type you are allowed to install. Obviously if you are renting the property you would opt for a shop bought version that you can take with you when you move.
Don’t discount the patio fireplaces you can find online. There are many different types available and you will be amazed at how beauty and practicality have been combined in one unit. You can find cast iron and stainless steel, square or round shapes. Those that burn wood or those powered by natural gas. There are covered fires and ones that resemble the traditional camp fire. Some are designed to be completely portable so you can take them on holiday with you if you wish. Finally you will also find those that double up as a grill or barbeque if you want a functioning fire and not just heat.
You can find a patio fireplace for less than $200 but be careful not to be dictated too much by price. You want something that will suit your requirements and last a long time.
