This is the dry stone outdoor fireplace we are working on presently in Durham Region Ontario.
My clients and I collaborated on the design which involves building the fire box into the corner of the sunken dry stone courtyard which we are also making, that wraps around an historic Georgan-style house, built of squared fieldstone.
The rough-in was done by Mackenzie Fike from Port Carling, Ontario. It will be a four foot arched opening.
It all sits on a concrete pad.
There will be a grate that can be set into the opening for cooking on and a metal crane fitted on the right side for hanging pots over the fire.
The dry stone cladding will be done similar to the way we did this one that Evan Akira and I did a couple years ago near Baltimore, Ontario.
