Outdoor fireplace...

We were meant to have a chicken pasta dish on Friday night but we got side tracked (good wine) with our new outdoor fire - it got late so we ordered a pizza.

It really shows how often we have takeaway - I had to get on Facebook and ask the name of the newish Italian restaurant that is in our town. Its been open for over 6 months!  Anyhoo, the marinated lamb pizza was delish and we enjoyed the first of many fires in the new fireplace.  Now we just need to re-joosh the pergola area.  Here are some pics...

April 13th...the fireplace is framed up...

17th April...fireplaced boxed in ready for the stone tiles to go on.

Gus chose InfinitiStone  - a totally man-made drystone wall look...it goes on quick and the tradies had minimal cutting to do.

A view from the rear...a high, double flued chimney. The fibre cement sheeting will be painted when we can nail down our painter! 
~
5pm and its all finished!

We have outdoor blinds that come down to enclose the whole pergola, creating an outdoor room...
~
We only had a small fire first up so that the steel could temper a bit.  Next time we'll have a bigger one.

We are really pleased with it!

Cheers - Joolz xx

    1. Thanks, Kath! I think we'll use it a lot over the winter months...
      No, Bonnie has not really improved much at all. She is still very wonky and I actually think she's had a stroke. :(

  3. It looks fantastic. Great how it now turns the area into an outdoor room and extra entertaining area. I'm sure there will be many great times enjoyed around the fire. Sandra
