The patio stone designs for outdoor fireplaces featured here are solid as a rock. More specifically, they are solid as granite, one of the hardest stones known to man -- surpassed only by diamonds, rubies and sapphires!
granite used for each of the out-
door patio fireplace designs featured here is from Champlain Stone, based in Warrensburg, New York. Among other natural stones, the company's product line includes a variety of high quality granite types that are available in a wide range of stone sizes, shapes, cuts and textures. The massive, semi-
circular patio fireplace pictured at left is crafted from the company's Corinthi-
an Granite. It features a variety of stone cuts including ashlar, roughly squared/roughly rectangular, and thin sawn corner ashlar. Note the built-in storage area for firewood beneath the raised hearthstone.
The striking outdoor fireplace and patio wall design in the two images that follow is crafted from Champlain's Van Tassell Granite. It features a blend of random mosaic pattern veneer and roughly squared/roughly rectangular stone cuts. Note how the arch over the mantel shelf echoes the arched firebox opening. Also note the beautiful herringbone pattern of the fire brick on the interior of the firebox.
The two patio stone designs for fireplaces that follow are crafted from Champlain Stone's Summit Granite. The design pictured below, left, features stone work in a random mosaic pattern. Note the "wraparound" hearth.
Pictured below, right, is a fireplace design with roughly square and roughly rectangular stone cuts. Slide-in racks are ideal for outdoor grilling.
The outdoor patio fireplace design that follows is shown from two different angles. Crafted from Corinthian Granite, the stone is cut into roughly square and roughly rectangular shapes. Framing the upper portion of the arched firebox opening are wedge shaped stones, or voussoirs, and a prominent keystone centered on top of the arch.
And finally, the rugged stone fireplace that follows is built into a hillside. Large boulders of Champlain's
American Granite were used in its construc-
tion. Adding to the rustic look and feel is a chair and pair of benches crafted from logs.
