    Would love to know the make of the fire pit and barn lights if you know. Thank you.

    I too would love the resource for the fire pit. Thanks!

Using movable chairs and a love seat, rather than a built-in furniture arrangement, keeps the seating flexible. Guests can pull their chairs up closer to the fire pit for extra warmth or push them back to cool off.Shop for teak patio furniture

AFTER: Using the L-shape of the backyard, Scott defined two distinct areas of the garden: an inviting outdoor fire pit patio, shown here, and an area for a raised-bed kitchen garden, connected by a small section of lawn. “This is a family garden, so we wanted to give everyone what they needed: grass and vegetable tending for the kids, and a place to relax for the adults,” Scott says.

Here, I like placement next to house/garage and the idea. Don't live the fire pit itself or patio. Like how it fits with lawn and home.

Oh imagine this sort of arrangement on the middle level off the back of the great room

Like the idea of a fire pit . Might not be good for the porch but good close to the river patio
