building a fire pit 
Getting started
Prior to building your fire pit select a location that is not close to trees, plants, buildings andanything else that could possibly catch fire from a spark. It is always a good idea to have agarden hose with a sprayer close by in case of an emergency. The instructions found on thiswebsite are only the steps used by one party and have not been approved by any buildingcodes or Fire Department codes. This is merely a documentary of my experience building afire pit.
1. Lay a row of stones in a circle with edges touching.2. Using an edger, score around the outside edge of the stones as deep aspossible.3. Flip the stones over to expose the inner circle.4. Using the edger, score two rows across circle to remove sod easier.5. Roll sod by strips and remove from center. Sod can be transplantedsomewhere else or disposed of as composting material. I used myBetter BuiltSoil Screener and saved the soil for my gardens.6. Lay the stones back into place one at a time, leveling them as you go usingthe rubber mallet and adding or removing soil underneath the stones.

7. After completeing first layer of stones rake the soil andcompact it against the inside of the stones with your hands.8. Stack the second row of stones, overlapping the firstlayer so that the stones are staggered. This provides anice asthetic effect and also increases the integrity of thepit.
