What Houzz contributors are saying:

The clients wanted a terrace with a fire pit that would generate enough heat to make it comfortable even on the foggiest Santa Cruz nights. One of the owners solved this problem himself by installing two gas lines and building a tall vertical gas manifold out of steel tubes. "Lighting it can be a challenge if you value your eyelashes," says Yates.
