Outdoor Fireplace in Stone & Cedar Pavilion Beside Pool. From Bonick Landscaping. Dallas Residential Landscape Design & Installation. "This stone and cedar pavilion, designed to harmonize with the main house, a historic Tudor, affords its owners a sheltered outdoor living area complete with a commandingly large, built-in fireplace and wrought iron chandelier."
Even after six years, Biltmore House was not complete when George Vanderbilt opened it in 1895; work would continue for years. Its scale continues to be astounding: the house contains more than 11 million bricks; the massive stone spiral staircase rises four floors and has 102 steps. Through its center hangs an iron chandelier suspended from a single point, containing 72 electric light bulbs.
