provides us with inspiration for outside fireplace design ideas with their House Ocho, which has a great outdoor fireplace that is attached to the house. In this case, we suspect, the fireplace is a part of the outside central boiler which is basically an outdoor wood furnace; so you can make hot water and enjoy fire at the same time – what a clever idea. This home is located in the Santa Lucia mountain range in California – which means they have a pretty good climate to enjoy a fireplace outdoors all year long. How wonderful! The house itself is beautiful and modern. The tall weathered metallic appearance complements the home’s structure. But whether your fireplace is attached to your home or it’s own structure somewhere in your yard, I think we can all agree that an outside fireplace is always great.
