The Great Outdoor Experience
It’s a great experience to enjoy an outdoor fireplace. Some people find themabsolutely useless, but they couldn’t be more wrong. The fireplace was first designedfor use in the home. That may be true. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy themanywhere else.Outdoor fireplaces make for excellent summertime entertainment. Havecompany over for the evening and spend hours sitting around the fireplace on your deck or on your patio. In fact, Fall and Spring both invite perfect moments to enjoyyour outdoor fireplace as well. The roar of the fire provides an ideal backdrop for long conversations and the heat rolling off provides comfortable warmth on chillynights. Once you have an outdoor fireplace, you just might forget what the inside of your home looks like.But before you think that outdoor fireplaces are difficult or expensive to put into place, think again! They don’t have to be any more difficult than you can make it.All you need to do is be able to follow instructions and have a knack for doing your own handy work. If you want to hire someone, that’s more than recommended. But,you can do all of this work on your own.
Materials
When you think of the outdoor fireplace, you normally think of bricks andmortar. While that’s the most common, there are other styles you can use because thedesign of the Ventless Gel Fireplace makes it totally safe to use other materials.Make an interesting wood design. Have fun with cement. There is no limit because
 
Ventless Gel products make your outdoor fireplace experience the safest it can possibly be.With a Log and Grateset, you can expect a flame to reach 6” to 10” above the Sunjel fuel can. That means that it would reach a few inches above the logs on thegrate. So, you’ll need to build a good clearance. But, that’s not hard to calculate.You’ll need your own tape measure to get exact dimensions, but they are pretty closeto the following:15” Log and Grate – 22”H X 20”D X 21”W18” Log and Grate – 22”H X 20”D X 24”W21” Log and Grate – 22”H X 20”D X 27”W24” Log and Grate – 22”H X 20”D X 30”W*Note – You’ll want to take your own measurements. Individual conditionschange actual results. So, be safe! Take measurements that add at least 10” to theheight for the box and 6” for the depth and width for best clearance.
 
If you would rather, you can use aVentless Gel Fireboxto build your outdoor fireplace. Simply order the firebox you want and take measurements when it arrives.Your frame should enclose the firebox tightly and you can easily make a frame out of wood. The firebox will provide the protection against fire that you need. A woodframe is absolutely safe.After you’ve chosen which way you are going to seat your fire, it’s time to think about the design. Of course, we’ve already discussed the fact that red brick is themost popularly used material. But, yellow and white brick make for beautifulfireplace materials too. Here’s the part where you can really use your imaginationand have a little fun.- Natural sandstone is a beautiful rock to use when you want an elegant design.- Granite makes a great surround for your outdoor fireplace.- Pumice Aggregate will actually project heat rather than absorb it.
