Maricopa Fireplace

The Maricopa

This fireplace is a big yet elegant structure that will surely be the focal point of your outdoor space. Plenty of seating space is available for many to sit around the fire. The seating is on three sides, 16 inches deep in the front and on the sides, with additional seating extending to the front. To the sides of the chimney, there are 16 inch shelves, which are big enough for candles or other decoration and adornment. The overall dimensions of this fireplace are 96 inches wide (left to right), 72 inches deep (front to back), and 78 inches high (bottom to top). The firebox opening measures 32 inches wide, 24 inches deep, and 24 inches high. Minimal block cutting is necessary.
