Sweater weather is on its way, and as much as we love summer on LBI, outdoor living on LBI this fall can be just as amazing. For many people on Long Beach Island you would think it’s time to pack up and secure your home for the winter. But for many of our homeowners, the change of season can be a wonderful time that is very different from the time of summer crowds. This can be the best time to enjoy your custom home on LBI! When the lights start blinking on the boulevard and the towns are quiet, we think LBI is at its best. Our homeowners extend their season of enjoyment in their new custom homes with a variety of features, like outdoor fire pits. There’s nothing more enjoyable than spending time with family relaxing by the fire. Here are some great questions to ask about your fire pit for outdoor living on LBI this fall.
Woodburning or Natural Gas?
We have designed and built many different types of fire pits for our custom homes on LBI. Some of them are wood burning, but most are natural gas. Depending on your preference, you can decide what is best for your outdoor enjoyment. Materials can range from stacked stone to match your house, or masonry blocks that coordinate with a patio. One thing is for sure, these are not a dug-out hole in the ground! If you choose a wood burning fire pit it can require additional maintenance. But, the crackling fires and smell of an outdoor camping trip can be worth the effort. Natural gas fire pits can be designed using modern materials such as fire glass. This will provide a beautiful glow and warmth of the fire, without the maintenance. No matter what you choose, having a fire pit will keep you coming to LBI through the fall!
What Height or Style Fire Pit is Right for Your Home?
No matter what your design style or preference is, we can help you design and build your new custom home on LBI, along with all of the outdoor living features you need including a fire pit. Not only can you have the best summer ever – you’ll want to stay through fall! For more information on building a custom home on LBI, or to get started contact Stonehenge Building & Development.
