Round Brick Fire Pit


We were given some bricks leftover from a home construction.
They weren't fire bricks, so we'll see how long they last. But the burning wood doesn't really sit down inside the pit, it sits more on top...so maybe that helps.
It's been a couple years and they've been fine...so far so good.

It was my first attempt at doing any kind of brick. Not sure I want to do it again.
Not really a project I enjoyed...took forever it seemed...but I think it turned out nice.

This will eventually be moved or redone completely once we landscape back there, maybe put in a paver patio & some seating...who knows?

Thanks!
The grill helped make a perfect circle. I just built the pit around it basically.
It took a long time for some reason...maybe because it was my first time. I had planned on doing another row, but nope...after two rows it looked good enough.

We've already had a couple bonfires, complete with smores, dogs, & suds. Good times.

Looks nice! Is the grill removable? It's hard to tell from the pictures. Either a fire pit or brick BBQ grill is on my "would love to have but never seem to have the time to build" list which seems to keep growing :-)

Yes, the grill can be taken out. It's just resting on the bricks and slightly raised above the rock to allow airflow and a better burn.
