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.

My Princeton fireplace kit is a luxury you can afford
Order arrived on time. It was in excellent condition. Outstanding instructions included and even several tubes of masonry adhesive to get the job done. It took two days for me to assemble with the two wood boxes and extended base. It came out great and we love the result for our back yard.

Building an outdoor fireplace takes work and planning. This is why we make as much information available to you before you make a purchase. Please visit our online library of all our available supporting documents. There are even more than you will find listed above. While I recommend printing our Dimension and Planning Guide for reference when determining the placement of your outdoor firepace kit and all its optional configurations, you can find a quick reference of its critical dimensions below.
All dimensions approximate.
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. Who knew these places still existed? Yet, the US is a vast 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. ThisUndeliverable areas are very rare. We are just withholding our right to not ship to specific addresses. 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.
"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.
Due to the nature of our product(s), your order will be delivered curbside in a large freight truck. Your order will be on several 48" x 40" wood pallets and will each weigh up to 2000 pounds. Someone will contact you to schedule delivery. You will need to be on hand to meet the driver and sign for the delivery. The pallets will be lowered and placed on the ground in the street at the end of your driveway. Adequate space must be available for a large freight truck to maneuver. You will probably want a friend or worker to help you with your delivery.
Refunds will not be issued for order refusal due to the delivery method.
Several factors that would determine your delivery. All orders (usually) leave our facility in 2-3 working days. Outside carriers ship your kit curbside with lift-gate service. Once ordered, my dispatcher will contact you and give you all the shipping info and tracking numbers. From experience, I would estimate that it would take between 5-10 working days to arrive. Sorry, I can't be more specific, but this is tons of material delivered as freight. Unfortunately, it is not like UPS dropping a box at your front door. I hope this helps.
The fireplace does not come with a warranty. I don’t want to scare you away, but we aren’t selling a finished product, just the kit to build it. As easy as this is to build, people modify the kit and could potentially build it any number of “unwarranted” ways. The materials are guaranteed to be free from defects. Moreover, they are high-quality materials. The longevity will depend on where the fireplace is built and how it is used. With proper maintenance, it should last a lifetime. Check the trim stones annually. They may become loose. Re-adhere all loose stones. Keep water from undermining the foundation. Visually inspect the firebrick every few years. You should have a product that lasts a long time – like other masonry fireplaces.
Very easy to build great customer service delivery 2 days early. Highly recommend!!!!
