Here’s a great video tutorial about how to build your own affordable fire pit. It does a great job of laying out all the stops needed. I have seen this before in photos but it is nice to have a video of it just to understand all of the steps. Building a fire pit would be a great project to let you spend a little more time in your back yard in the fall or spring when it is a little cooler. Also, it is a great way to use a corner of your yard that is not currently used. I can see connecting a paved patio with your deck to move back and forth as you entertain deck.
If you have built one of these and have any advice, please let us know below in the comments. Check back for a post on the variety of fire pits that work with decks and patios. If anyone has any recommendations for brands or experience with these, please let us know!
