Erin Lang Norris added this to How to Make a Stacked Stone Fire Pit
Before we did anything, we viewed our yard from multiple angles to determine the best location for our fire pit. Next, we measured and marked the area with a can of spray paint at the end of a rope tied to a stick. Think of it as a large-scale drafting compass. Once the yard was marked, we had a guideline for the foundation, which I will just come out and say we did not dig deep enough nor wide enough, and we will probably have to deal with the consequences later on. We dug only about 8 inches down, but I've read that it's recommended to go as far as 3 feet deep depending on your winter climate.
