how does this fire pit works? With a propane gas tank?

This one works with natural gas -- you can see the shut off valve/key at the bottom of the fire pit. Very cool design and I love the chairs as well. What would really complete the look is a set of our Artistic Steel Logs. Would add to the visual experience and add heat to the exterior. Check out some of our projects !

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Mid-Century Modern Getaway
This outdoor fire pit with Adirondack-style chairs is a quintessential element for a summer home. The large French doors allow for an ample presence of natural light.
Brush up on fire safety. Whether you are building your own fire pit, or hiring pros to install a custom version, it is important to know how to make your outdoor fireplace safe for all. For starters, a fireproof flooring or ground cover (cement, gravel) is a must. Also be sure to keep a wide area around the fireplace or pit cleared of plantings, fencing and even the siding of your house — anything that could potentially cause a fire to spread. And be sure to check local fire safety codes before starting your project.More: The Beauty of a Fire Pit, Without the Smoke

Concrete. Fire bowls made with concrete bring a smooth look to a yard and can be designed to burn wood or gas. Sizes vary considerably and they are a nice medium between a pit and a fireplace. The bowl can also be filled with fire-retardant decorative fillers, such as stones, if desired.
