One of our outdoor projects has been our fire pit. In the summer, we have a lot of fires, and it's one of my favorite thing of all times. I always talk about the three R's, and
this is definitely under the 'Reuse' category.
The main part is made from an old tire rim. Our friend welded up an old grill to it as well, so we are set for cooking over the fire, should the power ever go out, or if we just feel like it.
Then we set out collecting rocks for our pit. We got lucky and found some sweet ones.
We also found a bunch of flat rocks, which Adam dug holes in the ground for the rocks so they would be flush with the ground. Tripping hazards around fires are just not cool.
Because the outside ring of rocks are quite square, we decided to go with smooth river rocks for contrast. The river rocks also allow for better air flow around the fire, thus a better fire.
How do you like our entirely free project? It's amazing what you can do with something nature has given us, plus a few unwanted scraps!
