How To Build a Simple Fire Pit

Updated by popular demand.  I've decided to put up a quick post because there has been a lot of interest in how I built this fire pit.  So, here we go.

First, dig a hole the size you'd like for a fire pit.  This is about 40 inches x 40 inches with a depth of about 9 inches.

Once dug out, tamp or pack the soil tight and level (Not really seen in this photo).

Lay out the cinderblocks in a square and level.  Fill in with some of the soil that you dug out.

Next, lay some decorative bricks on top.  Once in place, dump soil or sand on top of the bricks and try to rub it into the seams.


 
TA DA!  You have a simple, cheap fire pit that is easy to maintain, easy to fix, and easy to remove.  


THANKS and please let me know if you need anything or have any questions!

  4. Thank you for giving us the idea for a simple fire pit. Here in the UK it’s not so easy to get hold of hollow blocks as apparently there is not much call for them! We managed to source some eventually and then topped them with narrow paving blocks instead of bricks. Now just looking forward to some summery weather so we can enjoy sitting beside it in the evening!

    1. Glad this could help. Perhaps there's an alternative to the hollow blocks? Some other form of concrete you could use? Maybe some rocks and stones with some mortar?
