Easily Build the Perfect Outdoor Fireplace Kit for Your Backyard
It’s Easy. NO Mortar, NO Cutting, NO special tools or skills needed.
Cornerstone takes the unknowns and extra expenses out of creating a dream backyard gathering space. Your kit comes delivered with everything needed to create a wood-burning fireplace that looks great and drafts like a champ. Our full masonry fireplaces offer the best value you will find. Our fireplace kits feature ample-sized 28″ fireboxes lined with firebrick. The firebox gets wider passed the opening. This high-performing heat chamber is coupled to a full-sized chimney. The standard height is plenty tall to keep the smoke out of everyone’s faces. Unlike other kits, ours has a large built-in mantel and overhanging hearth.
But it doesn’t stop there. We include a stainless steel spark arrestor for your safety. Other kits place large, heavy stones as chimney caps. These are dangerous to install and don’t prevent unwanted fires. We obsess over every detail to offer the best quality product in a complete package that is simple to install. It takes no special tools or skills to build our fireplace kits. And unlike other kits that are merely shells, you won’t have the added hassle and expense of covering your build with masonry veneer. Our outdoor living kits are complete upon installation. We believe we have a great product at a great value. But if you are unconvinced and still have questions, call or contact us. We will gladly help you in any way we can.

Customize Your Fireplace to Fit Your Backyard Needs
Getting what you want is simple. First, you choose your outdoor fireplace’s color, followed by its style or shape. You can choose between a standard firebox or a see-through firebox.

The styles aren’t endless, but there is more than enough to build a custom outdoor fireplace for your dream backyard.
Choose from Four Fireplace Models – Then Customize to Your Taste
The Barrington model is the most traditional. You may want to choose a Bremley fireplace for a more modern design. Or, if you can’t miss the big game, opt for our Bremley TV edition. All models feature the same large 36″ firebox, as well as a large hearth and built-in mantel, except the Ashford. The Ashford is a compact fireplace that comes with firewood boxes included.

Your Safety Guides Every Outdoor Fireplace Kit Design
Your fireplace kit has been designed up to a standard of excellence and safety. We don’t design down to a price point. From heavy angle irons, deep mantels and hearths, and stone appearance, see what we include in our kits that other companies ignore or charge more for.
Stainless Steel Spark Arrestor
Your safety is our top priority. Therefore, we include a spark arrestor with every kit. This addition will help prevent wildfires. It is much safer than a 100-plus pound stone found on other kits. Large stones don’t block floating embers from starting fires. Moreover, they are dangerous to install. We eliminate both problems with the best US-made spark arrestor available.
Large Hearth and Mantel
Can you believe some brands charge over a thousand bucks for a hearth? Hearths are needed to catch popping embers or if a fiery log rolls out of the firebox. Of course, our hearth comes included. Per best practices, we design all our fireplaces with a deep 12-16″ hearth for safety. Add a screen in your style for extended safety.
Our wide firebox dimensions help produce great draft and heating efficiency. The opening is wide to allow ample room for your fire while not being overly wide and inefficient. Firebricks add heat retention and longevity. Not likely needed in a lifetime, but the firebrick is a liner that can be replaced and protects the walls of your fireplace.
Cornerstone Fireplaces are Affordable Luxury for Every Backyard
Do you love the crackle and warmth of a real wood fire? Are you looking to add a wood-burning hardscape feature to our backyard? Perhaps you carve the ease of a gas-fired fireplace.
