Acucraft Custom Outdoor See Through Gas Fireplace Warms Starbucks Customers in Blaine, WA

Acucraft custom outdoor see through gas fireplace at Skye Hill Station

The seaside town of Blaine, WA is located on the northwest corner of Washington State near the Pacific Ocean and Canadian border, and it is the second busiest border crossing in the United States. Blaine, WA is also the location of one of the newest Starbucks Coffee. Recently we received word from Mike Hill of Otis Investments LLC who worked with Acucraft to build his Custom Outdoor See Through Gas Fireplace residing at Skyehill Station outside the Starbucks Coffee in Blaine, WA. 

Mike said, “I was looking for something that was a game changer for the border town we live in.”

Acucraft Fireplace Advisor Mark Kennedy and one of our skilled Fireplace Designers, Adam Redberg worked one-on-one with Mike through the development, design, building, performance and safety certification testing and delivery of this huge custom outdoor see through gas fireplace with 10-foot logset.

“These guys are awesome to work with,” says Mike. “I told Mark and crew I needed a fireplace that you could actually see.”

Mike referenced his travels around the United States, Canada, and Europe. He had seen many impressive and huge fireplaces in public areas, but the logs and flames weren’t in proportion to the size of the fireplaces. “They just didn’t look correct,” Mike said.

“That’s where Mark and the team from Acucraft killed this thing!” says Mike. “Better than I could have imagined, beautiful fire, large logs, looks really unbelievable.”

The Acucraft custom outdoor see through gas fireplace built for Mike features a 10-foot long, custom built and painted driftwood logset with a total 31 logs. 

“They delivered on time, on our budget,” says Mike.

Starbucks WA Acucraft Outdoor Fireplace

People are taking their Christmas pictures in front of the Acucraft outdoor gas fireplace.

Now that the Starbucks is open and warming people up from the inside with their delicious coffee, the Acucraft outdoor gas fireplace is drawing attention.

“It not only brings people in,” says Mike. “Businesses bring their families for Christmas pictures in front of it.”

Adding  to the fireplace ambiance are the functional performance and safety features. The fireplace boasts the tallest flames on the market that produce 300,000 BTUs/hr. and is safely sealed with glass and a custom firescreen. “The heat comes out nice and warm,” says Mike. Kids can safely touch the fire screen and glass without getting burned.

This new Starbucks location not only has a 48-foot-tall lighthouse tower, but it has a magnificent spiral staircase, an expansive coffee lounge and a sunny patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee next to an impressive see through outdoor gas fireplace with a 12′ wide x 3′ tall viewing area!
