What Houzz contributors are saying:
Built-in gas fire pit. This is the option for you if you’re looking for a simple, reliable, custom design to fit the look of your landscaping with the year-round benefit of natural gas.Having a party? Why bother with stoking a fire, and why should people get smoke in their eyes? Flip a switch just before the doorbell rings, and the fire will be sure to burn high and true.There is not much of a downside to this option, except, of course, that the cost of a natural-gas fire pit typically runs well over $6,000, depending on the proximity to available gas; the gas ring and log features selected; and the design characteristics of your fire pit. You will always need to get a permit for a built-in gas fire pit, and that can be a time-consuming and somewhat costly proposition.A built-in custom gas fire pit will likely take about two weeks to construct, once the permit approval process is complete.
