Heat up the night with an outdoor fireplace house plan. These house plan designs feature outdoor living areas (including porches, patios, lanais, verandas, and screened porches) with fireplaces. That lets you enjoy being outside during a cool summer evening or a crisp fall day. All-year outdoor living really takes advantage of a beautiful location and expands your living space.
Imagine kicking back on your back porch and enjoying the glow of a warm fire while you watch the stars come out. Or picture your kids toasting marshmallows while the adults sip wine and talk. Summer parties feel extra special when everyone gathers around on chaise lounges, benches, or other outdoor furniture and just hangs out. There's something mesmerizing about a fireplace that makes everyone put down their phones (for once!) and gaze at the same thing. Fireplaces create a focal point and adds everyday luxury to your home.
An outdoor fireplace can even connect to an inside one, if you have a two-sided or see-through fireplace that sits on an outside wall. That can create a dramatic and elegant link between inside spaces (like your family room) and outside ones. Some screened porches include fireplaces, giving you a sheltered place that still feels distinct and special.
