  1. I absolutely loved your examples of outdoor fireplaces that use bricks as a base material for the flooring and mantle areas. Bricks have always struck me as very rustic and warm materials to use, so when I thought of getting an outdoor guest area for my house, I knew I wanted to incorporate them somehow. Once I find a patio installation service, I’ll make sure to show them your examples so we know what to work towards.
