Fireplaces come in different levels of efficiency…
INCREASE THE ENJOYMENT OF YOUR BACKYARD
Getting the most from your home comes from effectively using all of your property. If you have a backyard, patio, deck or pool area you can turn these areas into wonderful outdoor living spaces that maximize the enjoyment you get from your home. You’ll have more room to entertain family and friends, and you’ll have one more option when someone asks “Hey, what’s for dinner?” by firing up the BBQ.
CREATING YOUR SPACE
Creating the outdoor experience you want for your guests and family members comes down to having the right outdoor appliances for the mood you want. When it comes to the outdoors nothing creates a mood like a fire. The main products you can purchase for your backyard that will give you a beautiful fire for mood enhancing or cooking are:
Each one has a particular look and function that will bring a certain ambiance to your outdoor space.
These are ideal as mood setters. The best are a dramatic addition as they incorporate a full stone mantle and burn real wood, allowing you to roast marshmallows and hotdogs in a more elegant way that over the typical campfire. Be sure to ask about the Lifestyles line of outdoor fireplaces.
To get that campfire feeling from your last camping vacation experience in a safe and controlled manner, try a gas fire pit. These come in natural gas or propane fuel source options and are great fun for a hot dog or marshmallow roast in addition to their gorgeous appearance.
A fire table is a great way to gather friends around the table outdoors when it gets cool at night for a drink or a bite to eat. The flame in the middle will keep everyone warm while also providing light so you may see the smiles of all those who are there with you.
We all know and love barbecues. They’re the most basic and best of summertime outdoor cooking and entertaining choices. In the right hands they can cook the most exquisite of slow roasted food and can also cook up quick burgers, steaks and roasted tinfoil potatoes. An open BBQ with meat or vegetables on the grill is an open invitation to conversation and comments of when to turn the food, they’re a non-stop conversation piece!
We invite you to come down to our store to learn more about our outdoor living products. You can get a firsthand look at some of what we have available and speak with our knowledgeable staff. You can also contact us by phone and email.
Looking Forward to Using Our New Fireplace!

Walk down any Sudbury street in the summer and you’re likely to get a whiff of something cooking on the backyard grill. It’s a staple of almost every home, but most homeowners (and BBQ owners, of course) don’t know very much about what makes their grill good or not so...
