ASK THIS OLD HOUSE:
Fire pit

The homeowners were struggling with a problem many homeowners face; how to add more entertainment space to their yard.  The solution was to create another outdoor room off the existing deck.

The new patio space is an 18’ x 18’ area composed of locally sourced bluestone with a rustic granite firepit in the center.  The pieces of granite were reclaimed from an old jail cell and split to specific dimensions using the feather and wedge technique.  The four sections of granite were then carefully placed to create the centerpiece of the new entertainment area.
