Our next featured builder is from The Peach State, Georgia. Jon had a back corner of his yard that needed sprucing up. He asked Backyard Flare to design a custom corner version of the Pima design, which was the first Pima to be incorporated in this manner. Jon knocked it out of the park with this build. It looks great!
Prep work got him started and the slab was poured and the first layer was put down.
Jon continued working hard and was able to see lots of progress. The plans were followed as Jon completed the top of his firebox. A bit more concrete was added for the mantel row. Suspended concrete is fun!
The seating surface was poured in place as one large piece of concrete. The chimney was constructed and the finish line was in sight.
More concrete was poured in place for the chimney flare. A veneer was added to the surface and firebrick was added to the inside of the firebox for a completed design. Adornment was added to the shelves for a bit of decoration.
The fireplace progress with an added sitting area and final touches making this fireplace and outdoor living area look like it was built for a magazine.

I provided the contractors with example pictures of barbeques and fireplaces I liked and received quotes as high as $7,800 to build just the fireplace. more...
