Great addition to our back yard. Instructions were very easy to follow, kinda like an adult Lego set. It comes with EVERYTHING needed for assembly and takes less than a day. The only tools needed where 2 caulk gun and level. Fire brick adhesive takes a small caulk gun and block adhesive takes big caulk gun. It was harder pouring the pad than putting this thing together. And the pallets it came on made decent kindling for the first fire. If a woodbox is added, pay attention to the instructions. A block comes with the woodbox that needs to be added to the fireplace in order to support the firebox top. I overlooked this step and had to add my own bracket after the fact. Woodbox instruction show assembly to right side of the fireplace, I chose the left. It was easy enough to simply assemble it in a mirror image of the instructions.

    Everything arrived in great shape although wish freight delivery had a folk lift. Installation was easy just took energy and time. Instructions use a little lacking (primarily pictures) felt like a heavy Lego set and easy to figure out. Overall it seems like a outstanding purchase only time will tell (only 2weeks old). 4 out of 5 starts do to price other 2 color options sold out or not available and there was a significant price difference just for color.

    Product looks great on our pool patio. There seemed to be a couple blocks missing to make the height of the top section as described, however it was a very easy fix to adjust things. Very easy to construct, my wife & I completed things in roughly 5 hours per 2 days. This would have been completed in 1 day but there was another block missing that supports the metal L-beam for the fireplace opening. I needed to have a neighbor cut another block to match the sides to receive the beam. I recommend when constructing this item you should stop after the first section is built and brace the stone top from inside the fireplace before the top section is placed above it. This would be to allow the adhesive to dry and ensure the top section does not buckle the stone to inwards. Wait until the next day to resume, you could build the hearth & wood box in the meantime. The hearth & wood box really make the project complete so I recommend these as well.

      Outdoor fireplace
      This fireplace was very easy to assembly and extremely sturdy. It is a great accent to our back yard patio. I have not had the opportunity yet to use it but looking forward to cooler weather to have the chance.

      Fabuouls Fireplace!
      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.

      Fabulous Fireplace at an unbeleiveable 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!!

      Turned out beautiful with wood boxes on each side and mantle.
      Surprisingly easy to build for two 60 year olds. We did need help with the wood box caps. We had a question before we started and called the manufacturer who was very helpful and happy to do so.

      Good product, but was missing two stone blocks
      The fireplace was easy to assemble, the instructions clear, but at the very end of assembly I was missing two 8 X 8 X 2 blocks. Had to get them at the local mason supply house.

      Easy to assemble by myself minus the concrete caps. Needed some help getting the spark plate lifted to the top. Highly recommend making sure your pad/base is level. Mine was off somewhat and I had to shim and mortar up one corner. Everything else was essentially like doing LEGO’s for adults. Fire brick reflects a lot of heat and the smoke draws up the chimney well. Overall a great end result and a seemingly solid product.

      Love it!
      Assembly took two people about three days. They drop it off at the end of your driveway, so we had a family barbecue and everyone helped to carry all the stones to the back yard. The base required ten bags of stone and 8 bags of concrete. This is not included. Lifting the large stones was the hardest part. The directions were good. We are loving it! We use it a lot and it's a great addition to our back yard. We plan to add a wood box next year.

        Bricks of same dimension were not uniform and cut blocks for steel were off by 1/2” forcing me to cut brick shims to make it work. Width dimensions of fake limestone pieces were off by 1/8”. It took technical support from Necessories one day to call me back on a question which is annoying when you are in the middle of construction.

        Poor customer service
        Came to the end of the install which went pretty well and came up short on 3 blocks. Called the company several times trying to get the block. Can't even get them to return my phone call. Terrible customer service. I'll have to overcome and adapt.

          I love it! Our contractor built it so can't comment on ease or not of the task. I will say that the plans we have did not have the front gray stone above the hearth flush with the fireplace front and not jutting out like the picture shows. I like the picture better, also we were short a couple of large stones but made due, by combining others at the end.

          Great addition to our landscape. Easy to construct but definitely a 2 person project. I would recommend obtaining a 32 oz caulking gun as the adhesive tubes are the 32oz size. Instructions were easy to follow and the end result was outstanding. I had 1 leftover stone ...not sure why but I'll use it to match up additional stones for some other backyard projects.

            We love this fireplace!!! However it says that it takes 4 hrs to construct but I had 3 grown men putting it together and it took them 5 hrs. The directions are fairly easy to read and understand. Firebrick mortar and glue worked fine. Liked the looks so much that we went back and ordered hearth and wood box.

            Fun weekend project
            Turned out great. I was missing a specific brick but they had put in a couple others so I just cut to fit. I poured the pad the week before. Then 5 1/2 hours me and my adult son put it together. I added the sun goddess and the rock facade at the bottom to cover my concrete pad, also had to buy the log hearth. Overall pretty happy.

                Easy. Very clear directions. This kit came with everything you need! The only thing additional you may need is material for the base depending on what your starting surface is. I would highly recommend to anyone. We started the project on a Friday evening and had our fire going Saturday night!

                  Terrific touch to a patio!
                  This kit was easy to build but you definitely need two people. The top piece is extremely heavy and will require at least two men to place. You can't go wrong with this purchase!

                  Looks great and easy to build
                  It's important that you have the right base to start with, because it is very heavy. If you have the unit delivered to the store you will need a heavy duty truck or trailer to pick it up. Suggestion: use a large Square to keep your stones straight, wait for the Glue to set before moving on.
