It was added to the side of an existing garage. The base is concrete, steel, block and a masonry veneer and hearth. The bench backs are weathered copper.

We prepared design sketches for the fabricator: a talented local metal worker. Every fireplace opening is a little different and that affects what you can do with the door type and attachments. Contact us directly if you would like copies of the sketches.

It's a stone quarried out of the Dakotas. Different suppliers name it different things...kind of a silly thing they do to protect their sources. Show the image to your masonry supplier and I'm sure it will be a different name than I have. It's available in thin veneer though this is all 6-7" thick.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Use red to warm up your outdoor fireplace. An outdoor fireplace makes a natural gathering place in the fall and winter, but when it is unlit it can look a little bare. Add a few red hurricanes to the mantel or the ground, and striped or patterned pillows to the surrounding seating to create a look that emanates warmth.
Lisa Frederick added this to Give Your Hot-Climate Home a Fall Feel
This outdoor fireplace provides the sense of a hearth without heating up the house in steamy weather. S'mores, anyone?
Significant seating. Ample seating built around the fireplace helps make use of an outdoor space on chilly nights.Tip: Put blankets or bench cushions on your hearth as a layer between bodies and the hard and chilly stone.
"The space is a real nexus for how the family lives in the home," Pedersen says. The kids stop off on their way from the driveway to the house and it's a natural gathering spot for everyone.The fireplace surround is Montana ledgestone that matches that of the columns; the flat slabs are frontier tan stone. The backs along the built-in stone bench are riveted copper that is tilted for comfort.

LOVE this one. The shape is great-low mantel close to the firebox makes it look cozy. Love how the mantel wraps around the fireplace base and the chimney sits on top of it. Love the hearth and how it jogs round. Maybe the angled wings of my drawing need to be softened to be curved or we go with a straight line like this. See back rest idea on cozy nooks. Also like how low the firebox is to the ground. We would like iron hooks on the side of the fireplace for tools to hang there.
