While we definitely build some spectacular pools and spas, we do have a few other specialties up our sleeves.  If you’ve considered adding the warmth and comfort of a firepit to your backyard for those chilly fall evenings and summer fires, we can definitely help.  We build fully customized backyard fireplaces or firepits.

These outdoor firepits and fireplaces are a gorgeous and useful addition to your backyard. They can provide a convenient place for outdoor cooking, a comfortable spot for relaxing, or a gathering place to make memories with your family and friends.  You can be as simple or as intricate in your design as you want.  You can truly use your fire feature as the focal point of your outdoor entertaining area.

In honor of all things fall, we wanted to share a few of our favorite firepit recipes with you all! 

Campfire Bread

Take your favorite can of biscuits or home-made dough and wrap the dough around a s’mores pole.

Hold the dough over the fire and turn regularly as the dough rises and cooks through!

The result? Fresh warm bread over an open flame with friends.

(For a sweeter option, sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar on the bread before cooking)

Banana Boats


4 medium unpeeled ripe bananas

4 teaspoons miniature chocolate chips

4 tablespoons miniature marshmallows


Cut banana peel lengthwise about 1/2 in. deep, leaving 1/2 in. at both ends. Open peel wider to form a pocket. Fill each with 1 teaspoon chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon marshmallows. Crimp and shape four pieces of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square) around bananas, forming boats.

Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until marshmallows melt and are golden brown.

Now that we’ve shared a few of our favorite recipes, shat are some of yours? Which recipes do the kids enjoy for a special family night or an after school snack? Comment below!
