About Us

We work directly with designers, contractors, builders, architects, and landscapers to link you up with the best products and designs for your fire feature project.

Company History


Architectural Fire was established in 2016, born from a passion and a realization to “design with fire”.

Jonathan Howie and Amy Howie - husband and wife - had already established and grown Montana Fire Pits as the nationally known expert in outdoor gas fire features.

Although we supply knowledge, expertise and industry leading products to homeowners, builders and landscape professionals, we realized that no one was specifically offering service designers, architects and the more discerning luxury clientele.

As a result, Jonathan established Architectural Fire to be the definitive source for custom outdoor gas fire features.

Arch-Fire provides creative direction, design assistance, technical information, consulting and industry’s best outdoor gas fire feature burner system. If you and your clients require the components to compliment your design or entirely custom concrete or steel enclosures to suit any environment and compliment any space, we have your answers.

Our process is simple, effective and timely. Our passion is contagious. Our energy is unmatched and we have a true desire to make “designing with fire” an integral part of any outdoor environment.

Arch Fire & Montana Fire Pits Reviews

Tom Tomsen

This is an amazing product - you will not find any better fire pit or flame. We love sitting around the fire each night with the sunset. AND the service of Amy and Jonathan is unbelievable!!! They make sure everything is accurate and answer questions and do problem solving and do it all within 24 hours. Amazing! You will be very satisfied.

Andrew DeBalko

Whether it is an email or a phone call, Jonathan is quick to respond and assist with any question you may have. I also checked out a few of Jonathan's videos on YouTube that explain installation and set up. He is so willing to help and answer any question you may have. It is nice to have someone that is so helpful and passionate about what he does. 

Dale Gall

Ordered the natural gas 300k BTU burner and I can't believe the flame output and warmth. Had a delay in production due to Warming Trends getting inundated with orders. There is a reason! Best fire pit burner on the market! Amy kept me informed during the delay and answered questions I had within minutes. Would do business with Jonathan and Amy in an instant!
