what is the distance of the fire pit to the house? - Have you since regretted how close it is? Did you have a local ordinance that required a distance? Asking as this looks to be how close my yet-to-be-built pit is to our house. Thanks!

This is one of my client's homes. The firepit is about 12' from the SHED and about 25 from the MAIN house. You should definitely check your local ordinances regarding fire pits and fireplaces.

24" is the perfect height! We design and handcraft fire bowl furnishings using this same height for our Signature Footrest Stand.
