Build your own Fire Pit ~ Our Fairfield Home & Garden

$700
2 Days
Medium

Build your own stacked stone fire pit with rustic benches and tables made from logs. This project was completed over two days and transformed a weedy slate patio into a family gathering place! We wanted a "camp in the woods" look and achieved it with 2 pallets of stone, a few leftover boards, tree stumps from a landscaper's job (free) and lots of muscle! see more details at : http://ourfairfieldhomeandgarden.com/the-firepit-project/

First step ~ Clear the area! Ours was a weedy old patio.

Second step ~ Use a piece of string tied to a nail to make the size circle you want your fire pit to be. (Put nail in center of firepit area, draw your circle and lay the first course of stones)

Third step ~ Use a level and continue to dry stack the stones. We had a pallet of Pennsylvania Blue Stone and had enough for 5 courses on the firepit and a small wall. We put a small bag of builder's sand in the pit. (the firepit alone took about 1 pallet)

Fourth Step ~ screw cut lumber into stumps for benches and use taller stumps for tables.
