An outdoor fireplace can really be a gathering place in your home that kids and adults of all ages will enjoy. These outdoor fireplace construction plans will help you build a place in your backyard for the family to gather around during the cooler nights and chillier months of the year.

There are a lot of advantages to building an outdoor fireplace yourself. Primarily, you can spend a lot less money on it than if you had one built for you. You can also be in charge of the design. If you don't like something, you can change it up so it fits you and your family's needs.

Keep in mind that many of these outdoor fireplace construction plans use fireplace kits as the basis of the fireplace.
