The firepit was installed by the landscaper. Unfortunately, we do not have the dimensions for the firepit. So sorry.

Since we are a design-build company, we typically work with local clients (within 50 mile radius of our office). We would recommend you contact a local registered architect and a reputable general contractor that understands local building technology, geographic/climatic factors, and building codes. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

So sorry it took so long for this reply, it was filtered into our junk mail. Most of the trim is a composite. The product used is called Azek. This particular home was designed by our in-house Architect, Phil Jenkins.

The architect does not know the concentration, he did say they have helpful information on the Cabot website. Here is the link http://www.cabotstain.com/products/product/Bleaching-Oil.html
