Outdoor Fireplace vs. Fire pit. Which one is right for you?

Here at PMHOKC, we are constantly learning and dedicate a lot of time to knowing the best products and how to maintain them after the purchase. Our team is dedicated to giving you some of the most important, accurate, and up to date information to not only educate you about construction but to inform you that it something you should be thinking about when planning for your Oklahoma City Outdoor living space.

We release one blog every week on Thursday. Our only goal with this blog is to bring you the most value we could possibly bring. We put a lot of time into our content and want to see you use this info to educate you on your Oklahoma City outdoor living space. Our staff devotes about 20 hours per week on training. The training could be about a product, maintaining a product once it’s already built, education about options in sample, pros and cons, etc. We would love to hear from you on any topics and we will write a blog or article about it. Also, one thing to know about our content is that it is all written by professionals that have had major skin in the game in construction for multiple years. Our staff has been building Oklahoma City outdoor living projects for decades combined.
Our founder, Randy Antrikin strongly believes in training and education more than anything. With a background as a firefighter, training was the upmost importance to his job and that is exactly what was taken away from that experience that translates over to really anything in life. When we build Oklahoma City outdoor living spaces, we want our knowledge to shine above anyone else and it also to show in our work that we know what we are doing. A lot of times, after a homeowner gets a project built, contractors will leave them alone and not educate them on anything that was built and the maintenance that is needed later down the road. We not only build beautiful backyards spaces but will be there to help you to build that relationship of trust throughout the years.

Here are some of the areas of learning that we specifically focus on that are of great importance that can help you choose or maintain your Oklahoma City outdoor living space.


This is pretty big area of concern for most homeowners. You have made that big purchase and everything is good for a couple of years. However, cracks start to show up, colors start fading, things get damaged. Most of the time, you don’t know where to even start because the contractor that built your project is long gone and didn’t give you any notes on how to maintain the products or what was used so that you can match it. Our goal with this section of learning is to educate you about maintenance in general but also to kill two birds with one stone by going over the instruction of how we specifically maintain the products that will be used in your new Oklahoma City outdoor living space.


Pros and Cons

Most of the time, when comparing two different products or services, just simply knowing the pros and cons will tell you almost anything you need to know to narrow the decision down to your final choice. We all know that salesman that just tells you what you want to hear. We offer you a very objective view on all the products and services that we write about. The convenience of having a short and sweet version of the pros and cons can end of saving you time and money in the long run. With information being a commodity these days, having a company and source that you can trust is super important.



If only money grew on trees, right. That’s what we all say to ourselves. It doesn’t matter what you make per year or how big your bank account, we are all wired to think about price and want to know that our hard earned money is not being wasted. At PMHOKC, transparency is very important to us. If you have every talked or worked with us, we do not shy away from discussing the numbers, even if its just ballpark numbers. We know that this is a value to you and will always write about our pricing and what is expected with certain products and service. When building an Oklahoma city outdoor living space, price is usually one of the main questions that is asked. The majority of people we talk to do not have much context on what the prices are for the items we quote them. Our promise is to always discuss the numbers in every situation. Its better for everyone.


Need to Know Information

There are a lot of products out there that have special instructions and considerations that are not well known. Our goal is to pick these topics that are not discussed and to get to bring them to light so that you don’t have hesitation or doubts. Helping as many people as possible is what we strive for.
