I'd like to post the step by step of the fire pit I'm creating out in the front yard this summer.
There was previously a circle of stones that was used for this capacity, but I've always wanted to try my hand at an outdoor project like this, and now is the perfect time to renovate what we have currently going on!
This is what is currently there:
Literally just a circle of rocks. The dead grass piles up around it and can actually be a fire hazard in late summer.
Here is the plan I have:
What it doesn't show is the mortar for where all the different pieces meet. Am I right in thinking that I need to get a refractory mortar? Will another kind work?
I'm using river rock for the outside because there is an ABUNDANCE of it on the property. Thoughts and considerations?
Please let me know what you all think! I look forward to hearing suggestions and advice as I work my way through this!
