How to Build a Fire Pit
There are plenty of plans and kits available for building a fire pit, at a cost. This Done-In-A-Weekend Fire Pit Build is free! Before you get started on this build, Lipford reminds you to clean and prep the area you plan to use. Start by digging out the grass, leveling the ground, and compacting the soil well. He then recommends adding compacted crushed stone to create the new foundation.
Once both of your projects are complete (you could finish both in a weekend!), you’ll have created the entertainment space you’ve always dreamed of. And thanks to these simple plans, you’ll have more time to sit back, break out the marshmallows, and enjoy the sweat equity that went into making it a reality.
