Excerpts of Our Interview with Zach Watson



Selection: " Everybody is different as far as fireplaces and what they really want and one thing we really try to do is try see what the customer is wanting on their porch. Some people love wood; they love the smell of a wood burning fire and just really want to create that atmosphere."

Structure" "It is not the weight that people use to deal with years ago where they are building full masonry fireplaces that go all the way up to the roof. It's a pre-fab box, so most of your weight is really coming from your finished material that goes outside of that fireplace, whether it be brick or stone or whatever you decide to put on the outside. "

Innovative Fireplace Idea: "We have a fireplace that is made for indoor-outdoor application - a see through fireplace. So one side goes inside the home and the living room and the other side would be outside on your porch and this is a really neat application that we've done a lot so people can enjoy the fireplace on both sides. It's going to be a sealed application and that seals absolutely with glass and that is going to keep bugs from coming in, it's going to keep cold air from coming inside the house and at the same time you still can enjoy your fire on both sides."

Outdoor Kitchen Considerations: "We also want to think about ventilation. We don't want to have this great porch that is going to fill up with smoke when you cook. So we do a lot of outdoor hoods on screen and porches. These hoods are really designed to go up against the wall. It is not designed to build in an island application, you want to be able to block that wind and that is going to help pull that smoke up. "
