Currently before we start to remove our fire pit, exactly how far down should we dig it?

Dig your fire pits no deeper than 3/4 of your arms size. Why that deep? Since once in awhile you'll need to cleanse it out. Clean out the ashes, dust and more.

For this instance we simply use normal landscape design rock or brick. After that simply lay the initial layer of block in the lower around the sides.

Currently fill in the rest of the bottom or flooring of the pit. To make it fit right you may need to reduce a few of the blocks. Use a masonry saw for this. As soon as you have your pit floor completed, start laying as well as stacking the block around the sides of the pit.

Depending on exactly how you want to make it at the corners you can either join them together or overlap them. But to join them you'll have to make custom-made cuts to the bricks. Continue filling out the sides of the pit by piling your bricks.

Once you've reached the top of the fire pit, you might notice that the actual fire area will be smaller. But that's OK, we have a great little fire pit to delight in. From below you can do points like developing a deck out around the fire pit. Once again your imagination is the restriction.
