Fire is a primitive force intimately tied with human existence. It’s changed the course of history, allowing everything from baking to constructing tall buildings. And now, it’s used a lot for ambience in residential backyards.
It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake.
Nothing makes a house feel like a home when it comes to a cozy fireplace, or sitting around the fire pit while roasting s’mores with good company. The light and heat bring people together to share in new memories. Because that’s really what fires do, they bring families together. It doesn’t just brighten up backyards in the literal sense, but in ways that bring joy to homeowners.
