If willing to experiment and build a Patio Cover, hammer out questions as to why you need a Patio Cover, for what purpose, whether it would be painted or made with wood, prefabricated aluminum or PVC, and if permission is required from state or city authorities. Remember that a patio is an extension of the house, generally not more than 12 feet and single-storied. The patio can be fully covered or have no cover. No special skills are required for building a Patio Cover except co-coordinating your patience, dimension of area, number of wood or aluminum panels and material required.
One thing that's very important is to consider how much space you have available on your patio. After all, a fire pit puts out a lot of heat, and if you only have a small patio, the last thing you need is a huge fire pit taking up lots of space and making the patio feel like the inside of a volcano. So in that situation you would only need a small, simple fire pit. Then you can place it in the middle of the seating area, for effect and warmth, and people can enjoy it without roasting.
2. Heating Area? Pick a heater for its ability to warm the area you use most, usually a 20-foot circle around the unit. Read product information carefully - the biggest and most expensive units do not always provide the most heat for your dollar.
Another good tip to follow is to always place long furniture (e.g., a cushy couch) along the longest wall, which is usually the one adjacent to your backdoor.
