Building a Fire Pit

If you’re looking to extend your enjoyment of the outdoors through the Fall season, a Fire Pit is a great way to go! Done right and with safety as your top priority, fire pits can be a great way to spend time with family and friends outside on those cool Fall evenings. There are many ways to install a fire pit, some more complicated than others, but if you’re looking for a basic fire pit here are a few recommendations.

Do Your Research

–       Make sure local HOA or fire codes are followed before installing a fire pit

–       Watch videos online or read about the best ways to set up your own fire pit

–       Choose the right location – a level, open spot in your yard away from flammable structures and landscaping

Purchase Your Materials

–       Fire pits can be made in a variety of ways but typically require a steel fire ring, fire bricks, sand, gravel, pavers or lava rocks

–       Your materials will also be dependent on the style and functionality you want out of your fire pit

–       Be sure to give yourself plenty of space with the typical fire pit being 36-44 inches wide and 18-20 inches high for direct viewing while seated

–       Consider how you want to sit around your fire pit – benches or adirondack chairs are popular options
