This is one that we completed this summer. Isokern fireplace kit. The grill on the right is a Viking. The one on the left is from a manufacturer in California. It has an adjustment on the grate height. Pretty slick.

More info on the grill on the left please.

The design and craftsmanship look great but using the same material throughout, meh.

Im not a fan of the materials used, reminds of the patios built in the 1970's-80's. But the work looks great.

I agree with everyone else, work looks really good. The grill is way to close to the fireplace, for me anyway.

Your work looks great, but that's a lot of brick.
This is not meant to be a criticism, but I think it would look better to have the patio made out of stone or tan pavers. Maybe change up the brick pattern in the area above the fireplace opening.

Will see what I can do on some construction pictures. There was an existing patio and we added 10' throughout. We matched existing pavers and the existing brick on the house.

I've got to say I like what I see a lot. Given whatever circumstances a customer and oppose to you (budget, opinions, etc.) you can look at this job and see that you did a good job laying it out and capturing a great design.

Nice clean job site also.

What is the ground surface material?

do you Tapcon wall ties to that modular fireplace? or did you use thin brick -- stick on type?

i like the look of the job, it looks fairly colonial. it would have been nice to use some brick shapes for a mantle or a 45 herring bone or something to break up the area above the fireplace opening.

other than that it is nice to see the continuity of brick, and no legos.
