Sadie has been looking at easy diy fire pits for a while now, but couldn't figure out which size, type, style, etc that she wanted. Today, when she went to work, I built her one.
Post and project completed by Rachel. :)
Rake the gravel away from the area you're going to use for the fire pit. I used a hoe to get rid of the random rocks that weren't cleared out by the rake.
After the rock was cleared, I used one of the paver stones to make sure the land was level and squared off. Some of it was bumpy, so I sprayed some water on it and smoothed it out with the hoe. It was like smearing paint, and made it much easier to work with.
I laid the paver stones out to make a square, and then for the next level I turned the stones sideways like diamonds. This fire pit is 9 levels total, including the base level.
I wanted to do another level or two, but I think this is the perfect height.
The cost of this project was $0, because our awesome friend, Beth, gave us the paver stones that she was going to throw away. If you buy them new, they're $1-2 each. This took about 82 paver stones. I recommend looking for them on Facebook because then they're free or cheap. People get rid of them all the time!
