Why don't you build your own,?? I did, and had great fun in bulding it.
I'm not sounding off, but I saved money in doing it myself.but I'm in the
construction business so it was not too hard for me, Im a carpenter
not a bricklayer.
"OK" you are not into this sort of thing, "well" the next best thing is
have a look at some mags/books about houses in Spain, you will have a good
idea of what you are looking for.
Have a chat with a bricky (Bricklayer) that lives in your
area, now I know there must be one some where.
show him the photo/photos of what you want and for a small fee i'm sure he will
be only too happy to do it for you.If you are lucky you may find a guy who is over
65 years old and has stoped working.
Trick: if you want to render (plaster) the outside of your fireplace, put two layers
the first layer in normal cement/sand, the other(final coat) you can have in a lighter/
darker colour ( myself for the final coat I used white cement with red sand, and it looks
Dont forget it will be a little heavy so get the bricky to put in a good base before you/he starts
When you have finished your outdoor fireplace and its looking good,
get the people from next door to come round for bar-be-que.

Have fun.
