Cholla Fireplace

The Cholla

This is the gorgeous Cholla fireplace design. This corner design will add that extra something to your space without sacrificing too much room. With a total width of 11'-6" and depth of 65", this is a lot of fireplace in a small footprint. The arched firebox is 40" wide with matching arched 20" wide storage voids set on a 45 degree angle. The seating extends the entire width of the structure and the shelves over the voids are approximately 40" tall. You can build the structure with the angled chimney or with upper shelves as pictured. The total height of the fireplace is 8'-2". Add the perfect veneer to this fireplace to make it a one of a kind. This design requires some block cutting for the angles.

The Cholla fireplace plan has a total of 41 pages.

About Us

Years ago I looked at my bare backyard and thought I should add something. I had a lot of unused space but felt trees and plants weren't what the space needed. I had seen outdoor kitchens and fireplaces in magazines and on TV and thought I would inquire with a contractor about having them built. I provided the contractors with example pictures of barbeques and fireplaces I liked and received quotes as high as $7,800 to build just the fireplace. more...
