Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CF10101 Fabulousr fireplace at great price!
I had been looking for an outdoor fireplace for 3 years. This fireplace was by far the best price. The price of the fireplace, 2 fireboxes and the hearth was the same as the next lowest priced fireplace alone. The quality is fabulous and the firebox includes real refractory brick, which means it throws off quite a lot of heat. I was so intimidated when the stone arrived. DONT BE! Installation is very easy. I am a woman in my 50's and along with my twenty-something daughter and her boyfriend, we were able to install everything you see in the picture in 7 hours, with lots of breaks. We had previously poured the concrete pad a few days before installation. I do have a few tips. Just as Home Depot states, the fireplace arrives by lift gate delivery only. The freight company does not have a forklift on the truck and the truck is an 18 wheel truck so the driver will not for any amount of money (I tried) drive the truck to the location for installation. Unless you are installing immediately adjacent to your driveway, you will need a forklift to move the pallets of stone (8 pallets total for everything you see in the picture). I called local landscapers doing work in my neighborhood and had the stone moved immediately adjacent to the installation location for 40 bucks. Well worth it. The stones are heavy and I could not imagine lugging each stone across my yard for installation. Another suggestion is that the caulk supplied by the manufacturer-while excellent- comes in the very large contractor-size tubes. We had to make a Home Depot run to get the extra large caulk guns before starting. Also, when you are done you are left with 8 pallets. Not to worry. I was stunned at the response I got when offering them for free on social media. All cleaned up and gone in less than 2 hours! Well done Home Depot!!
