I chose the size and shape of the fire pit based on the size of the area and the furniture layout. Then the shape of the pit was formed in wood and filled with concrete. The sides of the pit were surfaced with stucco and the top was again formed with wood and poured with concrete. Urrutia Design/Jason Urrutia

What Houzz contributors are saying:

An area of the deck adjacent to and above the outdoor kitchen contains a fire pit and cushy seating.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 30 Dream Decks for Lounge Lovers
A deck built around a large, sprawling tree offers shade, and the tree provides the focal point.
John Hill added this to Tracing the Deep Roots of Design
Sheltering trees with fractallike forms can have an even more substantial impact on a house, such as the huge tree shading the house and large deck. One result of trees with fractallike forms is fractallike shadows, which in a sense are abstract images of nature.More:Find High Architecture When Home Gently Meets Ground5 Unique Homes Throw the Landscape a Curve
