I am considering building a backyard fire pit. I want something that is substantial in size, rock or block construction. A fire pit that has a rugged elegance. I want it to look good and still serve it's basic purpose, serve as a focal point and gathering place.

Anyone have any photos of fire pits you have constructed? I need some ideas and inspiration.

Just buy a pallet of landscaping stones. Lay out a bottom level in a circle or whatever shape you want. Then just stack the rest around the edge. No mortar or anything needed. Takes a couple hours to try to match the prices together so it fits fairly stable, but really easy.

I am about to pour a patio and do the same thing. I am going to run a gas line from my house out there and make mine natural gas. I've been looking at burners online and wow they are high for no more than what they are. I am going to build my own out of tubing. It's going to be a fun little project.

I found several DIY fire pit videos on youtube this morning. I really like a couple of them. They look fairly easy to build.

Made a trip to Home Depot. The blocks I need are $2.48 each. I figure I need about 40 of them. With the grate and some gravel I should be able to build for it about $150. I will post a picture when I get it finished.

A little field stone and a cheap fire pit works pretty good. I need to spray a little Gly4 too LOL

Thinking about a small patio around my pit now. Going to get some more stones for my fire pit. I want the patio for the Clay oven cooker I am looking at building.

I am finally enjoying my back yard again, except the mowing lol
