Consider a fireplace and built-in barbecue for outdoor spaces.
A monolithic granite fireplace rises up on the shores of artist Martha Sturdy's cottage in British Columbia. Martha and her husband David Wardle added the patio and built-in barbecue to the Preston Island property, but left the exterior unchanged. Flats of thyme grown by Martha's son, Jordan, are planted between the rocks to give off a fragrant aroma.
