Introduction: How to Build Fire Pit

• Make sure the fire pit is, at minimum, 10 feet away from any structure or neighboring yard—25 feet is preferable.

• Do not position a fire pit under a covered porch or low hanging tree branches.

• Always place a fire pit on a non-flammable surface, such as patio blocks or concrete

.• Do not put a fire pit on a wooden deck or directly on grass.

Step 1: Tools & Materials

  • Shovel
  • Wheel barrow
  • Stepping Stones
  • Galvanized Ring
  • Small Bricks

Step 2: Determining Size

Place ring where you want your pit. Remember look around for fire hazards.

Fire pits are typically about 36 to 44 inches in diameter.

Step 3: Digging Out

When you have your circle roughed out, dig a 12-inch-deep hole in that location.

Step 4: Leveling Your Pit

Place ring in hole and see where it needs leveling

Step 5: Start Forming Your Fire Pit

Lay bricks under Galvanized ring on level ground for air flow

Step 6: Appearence

I placed stepping stones around so near by grass wont catch on fire.

Customize how you would like.

In the near future, I would like to continue with stepping stones around to slow down mosquito's
