The gas fireplace continues the theme of creating a contemporary outdoor living space with a long horizontal opening that is see-through. The fascia is two shades of gray slate with some of the basket-weave that was used in the backsplash of the kitchen. The top of the fireplace is the same Super Quartzite that was used for the kitchen counters.
The bottom of the fireplace is filled with glass beads and artificial river rock.
The ceiling was furred down to the top of the fireplace so a television could be placed that is protected from the elements.
