Custom Homes for Sale in St. George

Try New Things: Fireplaces!

This is a sneak peak of the courtyard fireplace from the home I helped design for American Heritage Homes to represent them in the 2014 Parade Of Homes. We wanted to make the front courtyard spectacular as its the first thing you enter as you approach the home.

This outdoor fireplace is of course wood burning with our signature stone hearth. We chose the weathered edge style of stone in the color vista  from Environmental StoneWorks here in St. George which we have used before but we decided to do something a little different for the chimney. We did the chimney in brick instead of stucco or simply using the same stone we used for the face of the fireplace to add a little interest. We also used a stone mantle instead of wood which wouldn’t hold up great in the St. George sun.

Try something new in your courtyard and on your fireplace to help add interest and personality to your home!

This fireplace turned out amazing and I can’t wait for everyone to see the rest of the home in this years 2014 Parade of Homes from February 14th-23rd.
