For those who want the feel of a fireplace without the high cost and permit issues, I came up with the “fire-hearth” design. Construct a simple wall as a backdrop, veneer with fire-brick and cap it with a mantle. Add decorative corbels of concrete or steel and build your fire-pit below in either half round or square shapes. The hearth wall can be great for screening views or creating a focal point not achievable with a fire-pit alone.

Consider local weather conditions.  Leave the bottom of your fire pit open to allow water to percolate out.  In heavy rain areas, leave a weep or drain hole just above the height of your adjacent patio.

Hot Tip!
