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.
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.
