We locally manufacture our own outdoor kitchen and fireplace units, with a MADE IN THE USA commitment to craftsmanship.

Family Owned & Operated!

Fun Outdoor Living was started by John and Debbie DiFiore back in 2004 as a spa company. Early on when Debbie’s spa customers needed patios and decks to put their spas on, John would figure out how to construct a space to accommodate the products to make it convenient to the consumer. Having been in home improvement since 1984, this was a natural transition into an industry that lined up with many of John and Deb’s interests. They are both avid grillers, kayakers, hot tubbers, and enthusiasts of the outdoors. They decided to take John’s 20+ years of experience in design and general construction and focus in on the backyard area. John Opened a manufacturing facility to produce Outdoor Kitchen and Fireplace units and began to expand the backyard product offering while Debbie focused on retail store items like hot tubs and grills. The last 18+ years has seen the company grow from a small warehouse with Debbie’s spas and John’s truck with tools, to four full time retail locations and a four acre facility with a factory, offices, and warehouses!

Today they have a team of individuals that are continuing the family-owned mind set of treating customers as we would our friends, and our coworkers as we would our family. John and Debbie, our management team, and all of our staff love what they do every day and enjoy what they are able to do for our customer’s lives. We focus on bringing more fun to peoples’ lives, getting them away from their daily stresses, and getting them outside to enjoy more time together. Our products and the yards we create for people bring families together, strengthen relationships, and allow people to have something they can enjoy everyday. Come visit one of our showrooms or have one of our design pros come look at your yard, and you’ll see why we have grown into Charlottes Premier Outdoor Living provider.
