There is no doubt that since the beginning of time, all creatures have been fascinated by the flickering light and crackling sounds of fire. Many plants and animals use natural occurring fire to their advantage and we all know that even after a devastating wildfire, there are benefits for the scorched area. Thankfully, the ancient humans learned to control fire for warmth, protection from predators, lighting, and to advance tool-making techniques. There is also no doubt that many clans also spent time around a fire telling stories, passing knowledge and delighting in this precious element. Nowadays, so many of us enjoy recreational fire as a centerpiece for nighttime activities. We have all witnessed the interest in backyard fire pits over the years, but 2020 saw the trend really take off. An enhanced version of a basic campfire, a custom fire pit, fireplace or Fireboulder® can be placed almost anywhere on your property and incorporate the things necessary to make it a fantastic place to spend more quality time outdoors with your own clan.
“The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another. It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.” – Henry David Thoreau
CUSTOM FIRE PITS, FIREPLACES & FIREBOULDERS
EXTEND YOUR TIME OUTSIDE
A sleek and modern design with an incorporated patio may appeal to adults enjoying wine and deep conversation while a more rustic fire pit may be just the thing for a family who enjoys backyard camping and making s’mores. An impressive outdoor fireplace can easily create an additional “room” outside, and an artisanal Fireboulder® is an incredible focal point in both outdoor living areas and commercial spaces.
We absolutely love the wood-burning Fireboulder® in our tipi. Each Fireboulder® is a hand-carved, natural stone from an Indiana boulder farm, and can be placed almost anywhere on your property and will also easily integrate into an existing hardscape.A Fireboulder® can also be outfitted for propane if you prefer to not burn wood. And, if you are really looking to up your Zen game, Fireboulder® also creates incredible unique pieces that combine both fire and water elements! Fireboulders® are simple yet stylish and their natural shapes and color variations will make them a stunning centerpiece in your yardscape.
