Fire Pits

I've been kicking around the idea of building a fire pit. I've had a picture of one on my vision board for a few years now, but I'm almost ready to take it from a thought, to reality.
It's almost like having a campfire in your back yard. In my mind, I can envision us having picking parties where we sit around the fire pit, swap songs and sip red wine.
I began sketching ideas for designs and pricing the stonework it won't be cheap, even if I do the work, but it will be affordable.
My carpenter is coming tomorrow to do a little finishing work on the barn that we left incomplete last year, so I'll get his thoughts on the fire pit too.
I'm excited. 


  1. Those are the best kind of parties... sitting, huddled, in a circle sharing stories around a fire. Toasting marshmallows. Ah! A fire pit sounds lovely.

    Nice :) And fun to hear that you're excited!

  3. A circular fire pit!!! why not?!?! Sounds amazing!! Take care

  4. I love fire pits, and my parents have one just like that. They did build it themselves (with help from Oldest) and it was a bit pricey, but it has given us many a good s'more.

    I would love a fire pit, but sadly a stationary stone one is out of the question. For now we must have one that moves.... so we ended up with this "redneck" one...

  5. Our son moved into a home that already had a fire pit. The pit is the center of outdoors activity and they love it. :) I like your idea of sitting around with a glass of wine in hand and watching the flames. :)

  6. yeah, I definitely want a fire pit. just don't know where to put it yet.

  7. I think it sounds like a great idea! It's something we want to do as well. Next year - when the house is paid off - we plan to transform the patio into something we'll actually use. Fire pit included. I can't think of anything more inviting to friends and good conversation.

  8. S'mores. Yeah. S'mores.


  9. Even though we are just about 3 weeks into fall we have still been able to joy the warm weather of summer, until night falls that is. As each day progresses the nights continue to get cooler.
