Hi all, I have built fire pits, bbq pits, but no fireplaces. I'd like to build an outdoor fireplace for a client. I have extensive experience building mortared walls, flagstone patios, and the pits I mentioned. If you guys have any experience building outdoor fireplaces, I'd sure appreciate any advice you might have for me. I have included 3 attachments. They are the plans I drew up for this project (they are not very complex, at all). Please let me know what you think,,,comments, suggestion, criticisms are welcome! Thanks much. Rob ps...the plans do not reflect that I will be corbling the fire brick so that the top of the fire box will wrap nicely around the flue opening. I'll do this instead of using the 1/4" metal that I've shown on the side view plan. Also, I plan to use cinder block as the support structure for the fireplace to about the 8'8" mark and then corbling the mortared stone to acheive the narrowing of the chimney.
