Dimensions of firepit - We are building a fire pit and are struggling on the dimensions. What are the inside and outside dimensions? We really like the look and feel of this fire pit. Thanks so much in advance.

We used a crushed granite about 1"-2" deep with a 6" layer of compacted roadbase. The base was compacted really well, have never had one weed and zero settling. Very functional and cost effective, it is also a nice break from the paving adds a bit of a natural flair to the project. Hope that helps.
