You love having outdoor gatherings at your Rocky Mount, NC home, so why not add propane gas fireplace or fire pit? It’s a great place to gather and chill out when it’s warm, so it could be a great addition. It may still be February but Spring is coming. Now is a great time to think about the home improvement projects you want to get started on this year. 

There’s no telling what kind of memories you can make out there. You just have to decide- do you want a fireplace person or a fire pit? Here’s a handy guide to help you decide.

Why Go For a Fireplace?

If you choose a fireplace, although you might have to get a permit or inspection, you will have a distinct and functional structure to gather around. In addition, it will block the wind and create a great lounge area.

You can also set up couches and chairs and gather around it and will create a great space to talk, hang out and sip hot chocolate. Despite blocking some views, it is also very romantic. It’s probably more expensive than a portable fire pit, but at the same time, who else has an outdoor fireplace?

Maybe You’re More Of a Fire Pit Person?

Whether you choose a portable option or build a structure for the pit, this also a great gathering place that can host way more people than an outdoor Fireplace. You can circle even up to 12 people around a fire pit roasting marshmallows if you want to. It’s easier to incorporate seating, doesn’t block views, and it is probably less expensive. Unlike other places that exclusively carry charcoal or wood burning fire pits, at Daughtridge Energy you can get a no fuss propane gas fire pit

Are You Ready to Make Your Choice?

Whatever you choose, it really just depends on what you want it for.  Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you want to host big parties or just hang with a couple people staying warm on your porch?
  • What would look better on your patio?
  • Ultimately, what look do you really want?

It’s also important to consider how your community feels about wood burning, and also to remember that there isn’t a predetermined shape your pit or fireplace has to be. If you dream it, it’s possible.
