Outside rooms

We designed the outdoors spaces to serve double duty...a band in the carport, s'mores on the patio and a glass of wine on the porch.

I, too, would like to know the dimensions used for both the bench and firepit, including seat height from the ground and back wall. I currently have plans to construct a seat bench in the round, but think this would work even better.
ALL dimensions would be greatly appreciated as my project will begin in a couple of weeks!

Is the limestone stacked or cemented with the larger stones cemented to create the seat and back?

This is strictly fire burning. I have done projects where we have run a gas line to the fire pit as a starter though.

If you didn't need the retaining wall would you engineer this differently? - I have a bench now that is built out of pressure treated wood but we are considering replacement and this looks like a viable alternative. We have a flat area to work with. What would be the most cost effective way to build given what I've described?

What are other types of comfortable seating around a fire pit to accommodate more than one person.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cassy Aoyagi, FormLA Landscaping added this to Draw a Crowd With a Fire Pit
Build in seating. If young people will be enjoying the space, built-in seating can encourage a safe distance.
Becky Harris added this to 21 Patios Ready to Party
S'mores party. Keep the graham crackers, Hershey bars and marshmallows close to this patio.
The architects of this outdoor patio had warm summer nights and s'mores in mind when they designed this Texas fire pit, so it's only fitting that the kids are in the picture — just as we expect them to be.
Grilling over a fire is part of the fun of camping, so make sure you have the necessary items. These kids know that the best part of being outdoors is surely the s’mores!
Tell us: Will you be adding lighting to your patio this spring? Which style of lighting is your favorite?
Don't overlook lighting. String bulbs overhead or add an all-weather floor lamp to extend the amount of time you use your patio. The fire pit here adds both light and heat, and provides a focal point for the built-in lounge — especially at night, when the view might not be visible.
Camp out under the starsStaying up late is what childhood memories are made of, especially after a busy term of rushing from school to activities to doing homework followed by early nights. Toast marshmallows by an outdoor fire and pitch a tent in the backyard. Bunk in as a family, or invite your children’s friends for a sleepover. When they’re asked what they did over the holidays, you can be sure this will be the first thing they talk about.
Mike Dietrich added this to Light Your Patio, Extend Your Evening
Strings of lights have become very popular lately, and for good reason. Don’t they remind you of a hot summer night in Italy, with a large and boisterous party under the trees and lots of people downing pasta and limoncello? Strands like these are available at many retailers these days, starting at less than $10, and come in all shapes and sizes.
