How is a sunken fire pit like this one constructed? - What is placed in the bottom to keep it from filling with water, what type of brick is used for the internal firewall, how deep?

We have found the most popular sizes are 36" and 45" diameter and 11-14" deep, but we are handcrafting cast iron bowls and stands. The cast iron radiates a lot of heat. In the pit above typically rock or sand may be used for drainage. Obviously, the overall size will depend on your outdoor living area and how many you are entertaining.

Firepit - What do you do with a sunken firepit when not in use? My husband is skittish about doing one--does anyone ever fall in? Seriously :)

Our company has been installing these type of fireplaces for many years. We actually have a very similair one in our backyard. I have not heard of anyone ever falling in them. I do have a client that posts pictures of her dog jumping in her fire pit, not when the fire is on :)
Good luck getting your hubby to agree, a firepit is a great addition to any yard.

We have a lot of snow, so we cover in winter months - and when not in use all other times, to avoid falls.

Laura Gaskill added this to Make Your Vacation Home Pay Off
Consider having professional photos taken. Since most visitors will be booking your vacation home without seeing it in person, having really superb photos is essential. Enlist the help of a friend with top-notch photography skills or hire a pro. When it comes time for the photo shoot, make sure the house is clean and uncluttered from top to bottom (put all personal items away), inside and out. You may also want to take a few pictures of nearby draws, such as a beach within walking distance of the house or a favorite biking trail.More: How to Take Photos of Your House
