On Thursday night I showed my husband a home made fire-pit on pinterest. After trying to explain pinterest to him for a half hour, he finally shut me up by deciding to just build me the pit in the back yard.
We chose a corner of our lot that is close to our deck and gets very little sun so the grass doesn't grow well- even in the summer months. The total area of the fire-pit is about 18'x18'.
ready made kit because we saved $100 and got the exact stones from the kit except that we added one extra layer making just a bit taller.
We bought the barrier to go under the rock and the surrounding river rock from our local rock plant. We chose to do a neutral tan color since we recently re-surfaced our deck in a sand color.
Total cost of the project: $258
Fire pit stones $100
Surrounding river rock $92
Edging (this one) : $30
Now we have the perfect area for summer smores parties and glasses of cabernet by the fire.
