Concrete Firepit & Outdoor Living Space

Small Residential Concrete Project

Concrete Fire Pit:  This project was a small residential project located in Bend, OR consisting of multi-level decorative patios.  The upper level was graphite color injected and a sand-finished surface. In contrast, the  lower level was a stamped and acid stained interior field with a matching graphite color injected and sand finished border. The cantilevered edges of the graphite-colored upper patio and lower patio border were ground with a mild polish. The fire pit seating walls and fireplace were both board-formed and polished.

Fire Pits Light Up The Night

Whether you’re hosting an outdoor party after the summer sun has gone down, or you want to snuggle up with your family and chat into the early hours, a fire pit is the ultimate focal point and creates an irresistibly ambient glow for a cozy evening outdoors. Not only does a fire pit provide warmth once the day’s sun has gone down, it can change the aesthetics of your home and give your garden a wonderful warm glow.  The most underused room in the house is often the garden, but when you have a fire pit, there’s no excuse that it’s too cold when you can sit next to those flames in the still of the night.

Sustainability and the Environment

  • Structural Concrete is durable—its lifespan is actually two or three times longer than other common building materials.
  • One of the main raw ingredients in concrete is limestone, which is the most abundant mineral on Earth.
  • Concrete is great at absorbing and retaining heat, which means it will increase energy efficiency of a building and reduce HVAC expenses.
  • Its reflective properties will decrease air-conditioning costs in the hot summer months.
  • Concrete produces little waste as it can be produced in batches specific to project needs.
