Is Adding an Outdoor Fireplace to My Yard Even Possible?

Of course! We’ve worked with all types of spaces and setups, and we are more than confident we can set you up with something – be it big or small, complex or simple. Here’s what the process could look like for you.

  • Choose the Type of Fireplace: The first step is to choose the type of fireplace that you want to install. Consider any building codes, space limitations, and – of course – your budget, when making your decision.
  • Choose the Location: Choosing the type of fireplace and the location may kind of go hand-in-hand, as one decision might put limitations on the other. But once you’ve got these two things figured out, the real fun (i.e. the installation process) can begin.
  • Get the Right Permits: Before starting any renovations, you’ll need to obtain permits from your local building department. This will ensure that the installation is up to code and that your fireplace will be safe for use – and won’t cause any problems should you sell your home down the line.
  • Have the Fireplace Installed: Once you have all the necessary permits and have hired a team you can trust (like us), the installation process can begin. This will include installing the fireplace, chimney (if necessary), gas line (if necessary), and any additional features like mantels or hearths.
  • Test the Fireplace: After the installation is complete, the fireplace will need to be tested to ensure that it’s ready for use and functioning properly. This may include a test run of the fireplace and a smoke test for wood-burning fireplaces.
  • Enjoy Your New Setup: All that’s left once everything is said and done? Enjoy it! Sit back with your favorite drink and your favorite people, and soak in that light and heat. You deserve it.

Adding a fireplace to your house is a complex project that should be done by a professional. Our team of experts is certified, licensed, and insured, and we’d be happy to guide you through the process. To get the process started, call or book online with us now.

Can I Build My Own Outdoor Fireplace?

Hey, we’re not ones to tell you what you can and cannot do to your own home and throughout your property. …but is this something we would suggest? Eh, not so much.

Building an outdoor fireplace is a complex project that involves a lot of technical knowledge – and considerations for safety, structural integrity, and local regulations must all be taken into account. If you’ve watched a few video tutorials and read some how-to articles, and you’re considering taking this on, pause for a moment and consider the following first:

  • Safety Considerations: Constructing a fireplace involves dealing with fire, heat, and sometimes gas lines, and if not done properly, it can pose significant safety hazards. A professional can ensure that the design and construction meet all the appropriate standards.
  • Longevity & Structural Integrity: Outdoor fireplaces need to be structurally sound to withstand various weather conditions – especially here in Nashville where we see it all. A professional will provide proper foundation recommendations and ensure the overall stability of the structure, so it doesn’t depreciate over time.
  • Local Regulations: Building codes and regulations vary by location. Professionals are familiar with local requirements and can help you navigate permits and compliance issues. Failure to comply with regulations may result in fines or the need to dismantle and reconstruct the fireplace – hello added time, stress, and expense.
  • Design Expertise: If you’re making an investment this big, you want it to look good. Professionals, like the Ashbusters crew, have experience in designing outdoor fireplaces that are aesthetically pleasing. We can offer guidance on the best materials, layout, and features – all based on your preferences and budget, of course.
  • Long-Term Savings: While hiring a professional may involve additional costs upfront, it’s likely to save you money in the long run by avoiding mistakes or the need for costly repairs later on. Professionals often have access to materials at discounted rates, too, and their expertise can streamline the construction process.
  • Saved Time & Effort: Building an outdoor fireplace is a time-consuming project that requires a significant amount of effort. The last thing anyone needs is a project that takes twice as long as predicted – or one that gets abandoned half way through. Professionals have the skills and tools to complete the job efficiently, saving you stress and ensuring a timely completion.

If you decide to consult a professional, look for a licensed contractor or mason with experience in building outdoor fireplaces. At Ashbusters, we can get the job done right, providing valuable insights, ensuring compliance with local regulations, and helping you achieve the desired results without compromising safety.

Do Outdoor Fireplaces Add Home Value?

Yes! Outdoor fireplaces can add value to your home in various ways.

  • Improved aesthetics and ambiance. An outdoor fireplace can significantly enhance the vibe of your outdoor living space. A well-designed hearth can serve as a focal point, creating an inviting and cozy atmosphere that adds charm and character – and makes your yard space the ideal spot for any get-together.
  • More room for…whatever you’d like! Outdoor fireplaces effectively extend the usable living space of your property. They create additional areas for entertaining, dining, or simply relaxing, making your yard space more functional and appealing overall.
  • Increased market appeal. Many homebuyers are attracted to outdoor amenities such as fireplaces, and by putting those two together…? You could have a potential buyer’s dream! An outdoor fireplace can really set your home apart from others on the market.
  • Outdoor enjoyment all year. Depending on the design and features, outdoor fireplaces can be used year-round. They provide warmth and ambiance in cooler months, allowing homeowners to make the most of their outdoor spaces – even when temperatures drop.
  • Potential higher resale value. While the specific impact on home value can vary, outdoor fireplaces are often considered desirable features. Homes with well-designed (and professionally installed and maintained) outdoor fireplaces may end up with a higher resale price compared to similar properties without one.

What Should I Consider Before Adding an Outdoor Fireplace?

So, you’re still on the fence… Is an outdoor fireplace right for you or not? Well, it’s a big investment, and we wouldn’t want you to move forward with it before considering absolutely everything. We advise considering the following factors before adding a fireplace to your house.

  • Building Codes: Before adding a fireplace to your space, you’ll need to check with your local building codes to ensure that it’s allowed. Building codes vary by location, so do your research before starting any renovations.
  • Space: Adding a fireplace to your property will require space. You don’t want it to overtake everything, and you’ll want to ensure you have enough ventilation space too.
  • Budget: Adding a fireplace to your house – inside or outside – can be a major investment. It’s important to create a budget before starting any renovations to ensure that you can achieve the desired outcome.
  • Maintenance. Be aware of the maintenance requirements for your specific fireplace type. Are you ready to invest in any extra work? And are you committed to investing in professional inspections to keep things in tip-top shape?
  • Insurance Considerations: Check with your insurance provider to understand if the addition of an outdoor fireplace affects your coverage or if any safety requirements need to be met.
