Why you will love your Princeton fireplace kit

This is our best selling fireplace on steroids! Customers have been adding extensions and asking for a larger fireplace kit.  Of course we listened. We took the most popular options and requests, and then came up with our bigger, badder, yet more refined Princeton fireplace kit. It is much a larger and refined build at the same cost as adding an old base extender. Don't do that! Get the Princeton instead. We added more hearth, more bulk in the body, and a taller chimney!  You can always add chimney extensions if needed.  The plans are thorough and easy to follow. You can read customer testimonials here.  As with all our growing line of outdoor fireplace kits, you can combine them to make a fantastic outdoor getaway - or neighborhood party palace -  in your own backyard! If you have any questions, contact me.

About Free Shipping

We only ship within the Contiguous US. Shipping is included in the price for the contiguous United States. In marketing words, shipping is FREE*.

*We now have the dreaded asterisk.  After hundreds of successful online shipments, it has come to our attention that there are some places in the contiguous US that freight companies can't (or won't) deliver to.  Who knew these places still existed?  Yet, the US is a huge country, and we can't possibly know all these hidden nooks in our great land.  I don't want you to worry about some bait and switch.  This is very rare.  We are just withholding our right to not ship to certain addresses.   Basically, if you are a half days drive from a trucking terminal, you are okay.  If a truck can't drive to and from your address in a day, it can't be delivered by standard means. **Very Rare**

How Is My Kit Delivered?

Due to the nature of our product(s), your order will be delivered curbside in a large freight truck. They will have a pallet jack to assist you in moving your delivery. Pallets are 40"x 48" and weigh up to 2000 pounds each. Most orders contain between 3-8 pallets of material, so please have ample room for your order. The pallets will be lowered and placed on the ground in the street at the end of your driveway. Adequate room should be available for a large freight truck to maneuver.  You will probably want a friend or worker to help you with your delivery.

"Curbside" means what it sounds like it says. The trucks will have a lift-gate that will lower the pallets at the side of your curb. The drivers will also have a pallet jack to help move the pallets once off the truck. The pallet jacks are limited in the scope of their delivery. Pallet jacks CANNOT DELIVER ON GRAVEL. Therefore, THE DELIVERY TRUCK MUST UNLOAD ON CONCRETE OR ASPHALT. We cannot deliver to addresses on gravel roads.

Refunds will not be issued for order refusal due to delivery method.

What is my Expected Shipping Time?

Several factors determine your delivery time. All orders (usually) leave our facility in 7-12 working days. We contract outside carriers to ship your kit curbside with lift-gate service. Once ordered, our dispatcher will contact you and give you all the shipping info and tracking numbers and a more specific timeframe. As a rule of thumb, It takes between 5-10 additional working days to be delivered to you. These kits are tons of material delivered as freight on multiple pallets. Please note, freight delivery is not like UPS dropping a box at your front door.

Very easy to build great customer service delivery 2 days early. Highly recommend!!!!
