There’s no better way to spend another summer day than with a little manual labor.

Well. Maybe I can think of a few better ways, and maybe you can too, but the hard work is so worth it when the fruits are so sweet. You’re asking, “Fruit? What fruit?” And to that I have but one answer: FIRE.

Yes, fire. Or, more specifically— a fire pit.

A season is simply not summer without a frosty longneck enjoyed in front of a crackling fire as fireflies and stars twinkle. If you’ve lived this life this long without a fire pit in your northern Virginia backyard, I’m so sorry. The time is now. Click the link to find tile setters near you.
