As I wrote this last night it was snowing. Again. Are you as tired of the snow as I am? I know our masons are! When the last snow melted I was so grateful to see the first sign of spring peek though the cold and tired earth – the daffodils are stretching their buds, hungry for some sun and warm air.
When its this cold and dreary out we all long for more time outside and look at our unused terraces, patios and gardens with longing. And this reminds me of one of the great things about incorporating natural stone into your outdoor living space in the form of a fireplace – it can extend the seasonality of your home, allowing you to spend more afternoons and evenings outdoors, even when the hot days of summer have ended.
We recently photographed this gorgeous outdoor fireplace. It features our Copper Bay MasterCut™, crafted from quartzite and precision-cut into ledgestone for efficient installation and a beautiful finished look. Even though it’s a local installation, it evokes the feeling of a ski lodge and I can imagine curling up in front of the blaze with a cup of coffee on a warm night. Here’s to spring!
