our process

why process is important

When it comes to making your outdoor addition a reality, where do you even start? We get it, and we’ve got your back. At Fire Pie Oven Co. we’ll navigate you through the process of creating your custom outdoor living space, and we’re committed that you discover unique layouts that align with your vision, receive guided support in selecting the right elements for your needs, and that you have an extraordinary, customized experience from pre-design to build.

1. Inspiration

Determine why you want to build your outdoor living space, then gather ideas, images, and wants to fuel your overall vision.

2. Collaboration

Once the inspiration, features, and layout of your space have been determined, work with our team to begin bringing your vision for life.

3. Customization

We set your layout apart from the rest by going to work on specific design details and elements that are unique to your space.

4. Representation

Design ideas are transformed into photorealistic renderings, final layout drawings, custom landscape plans, and scale models for you to get the look and feel of your space.

5. Build

The concept finally becomes a reality, and the renderings come to life. During this step, we oversee your entire build-out to ensure your expectations are exceeded.

Step 1:


Your vision and your lifestyle are the standards we use when working on your project. Before you invest any money into your space, it’s important to determine the reason why you want it and how you might use it. Gathering some ideas and inspiration before you start can streamline the design process and help you know how to best utilize your budget.

Key Focus Areas:

  • Identify your purpose
  • Gather location details
  • Make an idea board
  • Document “must have” features
  • Make a rough sketch of your ideal layout

Step 2:


After our initial meeting with the client, the design team transforms your inspiration into an overall design concept. Using design elements from your wishlist and our design experience, a concept is created to match your lifestyle and vision. We pride ourselves on providing a dream space that will also fit your budget.

Key Focus Areas:

  • Master Planning & Budgeting
  • Interior Design
  • Architectural Design
  • Landscape Architectural Design

Step 3:


Once the concept is finalized, we create a storyboard that consists of suggested finishes and unique elements that will be used throughout the design to reflect your lifestyle, budget, and vision. You will realize the value of the design dollars that you spend with us before any dirt is turned.

Key Focus Areas:

  • Fit-outs and finishes
  • Implement unique design elements
  • Match residential elements (i.e. shutter/finials, eyebrow dormers, custom entry doors, chimneys, etc.)

Step 4:


Using advanced modeling software, we are able to provide a scaled model of your space inside and out. We provide realistic renderings of your proposed space before any construction dollars are spent and you are able to see your vision for your space come to life before work is commenced.

Key Focus Areas:

  • Photorealistic 3D renderings
  • Final layout drawings
  • Custom landscape plans
  • Scale models

Step 5:


The renderings come to life as our design becomes your reality. Fire Pie oversees every detail through completion and includes you every step of the way. Our goal is to not only provide a carefully- designed space that you have dreamed about but to also exceed your expectations as we bring your vision to life.

Key Focus Areas:

  • Identify your purpose
  • Gather location details
  • Make an idea board
  • Document “must have” features
  • Make a rough sketch of your ideal layout
