A fire pit is a great addition to any outdoor space. It makes your outdoor patio accessible and enjoyable in the colder seasons, it is great for get-togethers, and cookouts. If you are thinking you would like to build a fire pit, our professional craftspeople want to share some of their favorite tips with you.
Be sure to check if you have a local building code, or if you are a part of a homeowner association, insurance, and more if there are any restrictions to build a fire pit. You will need some supplies and tools as well.
Fire pits can range from different sizes and design, but they are usually three to four feet across and can be in a circle or square shape. You will need different kinds of blocks depending on the shape such as trapezoidal blocks for a ring. You can get creative using blocks of different sizes, colors, and shapes, depending on your design.
If you are installing a fire ring that is stand-alone, go ahead and apply construction adhesive to the blocks. If you have a fire ring, make sure that fits first before securing the blocks permanently. Your adhesive might need several hours or days to cure properly. Do not use the fire pit until it is fully cured.
With these tips, you will be ready to build a fire pit in your own backyard. Get started and enjoy the results with a bonfire and more after your project is complete.
