Last Summer after finishing renovations on the farmhouse, I started planning an outdoor room project in our backyard. I really wanted a large natural stone fireplace and patio that would echo the farmhouse feel. My Angel landscaper (his name really is Angel) who happens to be an excellent stone mason, didn’t even flinch when he told me he could construct the space in the middle of Winter. Angel completed the project in about 8 weeks which also included three different snowstorms during the construction. He designed a makeshift greenhouse over the structure and even installed propane heaters for a temporary but toasty working area~

For the patio, random sized stone was selected for a more casual feel.

On Friday I will be entertaining a group of friends hopefully the snow will finally stop! I will share photos of the decorated outdoor room complete with farm table placed in front of the fireplace in a few days.
