holy!!! looks nice but pricey to build one of those.

Also, if you live in an HOA neighborhood, you might want to check if you need their permission.

Thanks so much we got a quote for 6k for a 9ft freestanding rock fireplace although I would love to have one that just seemed way out of our reach...not to mention just a tad more than I expected...well actually a lot more than I expected!

I am in the process of building an " Horno" it is a raised fireplace used for cooking, you find them on ranches in South Texas. It used for cooking more than just a fireplace, it is raised about 3feet off the floor the area underneath is use for wood storage the big difference is it's 6feet deep this enables you to build your fire way to the rear then rake the coals forward where you can have a free standing grill rack or cook using your cast iron pots. I had thought about an outdoor fireplace but liked this idea better. My total cost was about $2,500 I still have to finish the interior trim, I plan to stucco the wall and trim the opening with saltillo tiles.
