If you love the warmth and ambiance of a fall campfire, you don’t have to leave home to enjoy one. Adding a fire pit to your outdoor living design will provide a campfire right a home, ready to use in the fall, or any time of the year. If work at home and virtual learning have you feeling shut in, a custom Archadeck outdoor living design will invite you outdoors for a welcome respite. Grab a sweater for an evening of storytelling and s’mores with the kids.

Holiday movies are some of our favorite autumnal guilty pleasures. If you ask us, there is no better way to enjoy them than by an outdoor fireplace. Anticipate The Great Pumpkin or practice a bit of Hocus Pocus with your family this fall, gathered around your custom stone porch fireplace. The best part about having an outdoor fireplace on your porch, is the extended time you will have outdoors each year. By adding VersaPorch windows, you can continue to use your screened porch throughout the fall, extending your outdoor movie nights through Christmas too!

Outdoor Dinner and Drinks by Your Outdoor Fire Feature

Whether you are hosting friends, or enjoying your patio privately, a custom fireplace will make your backyard a favorite outdoor dining destination. Open a bottle of wine and light the fire in the grill and your fireplace for hours of outdoor enjoyment – no reservations required! Fireplaces are not just great for evenings but are also inviting for crisp fall mornings too. Bring your coffee or tea outdoors for quiet moments before the busyness of the day begins.
