Fireplaces, fire pits and fire tables

"To poke a wood fire is more solid enjoyment
than almost anything else in the world."

– Charles Dudley Warner

Fire touches our sense of well-being. There are almost as many styles and options for an outdoor fire as there are homeowners. Choose from wood-burning or gas, simple in-ground fire pit with a few boulders around the edge or a grand natural stone fireplace. There is something for everyone at every price point. And with fire tables, you have the added option of artistic flair with fireglass… a colorful addition to your fire table experience.

Fire features add enjoyment, value

Besides providing warmth and entertainment, a fire pit or fireplace can add to the value of the home. When asked why a fire pit or fireplace was an important addition to the landscape, homeowner responses went right to the basics:

  • “A warm fire on a cool Minnesota evening, with family and friends, roasting marshmallows and having fun."
  • “Watching a fire is a peaceful way to end the day.”

Here are just a few fire feature projects Southview Design created for our clients: Sunset Serene, Laid-Back Back Yard and Lakeside Award-Winner.
