The first step in building a fire-pit

Many people prefer to build-a-fire-pit instead of using a portable charcoal bbq.

This page will show you some basic steps in building a firepit. This is the first step in which the foundation is being layed down before the blocks are started.

The above picture shows the firepit being built on a terraced hill. The diamond wall block work has already secured the terrace before the firepit was begun.

This is the second step in building a firepit - laying the stones to shape the fire-pit. Notice the rod in the center. It is used to get a perfect circle.

Cement is then poured in blocks that shape the firepit.


This is the last step in which the capstone has been placed on the fire-pit and the outside has been faced with stone. Fire-brick lines the inside of the firepit.

Notice the ground around the pit has been smoothed getting ready for laying the pavers.
