Outdoor firepit and craftsman style outbuilding provide backdrop for grilling and entertaining.
approximately what is the circumference of the entire firepit area
Where was the firepit stone purchased?
What is the height of your firepit? It's just the perfect size. 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.
What kind of crushed rock is around the firepit diameter? I like the color too.
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 :)
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
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.

What material is used for ground cover surrounding the firepit?
freezing and thawing that might result in water getting into the mortar and freezing, resulting in the stone popping off? - what did you build up the firepit with? Block, stone, brick, poured concrete? - how big is it and what type of look do do you want - formal, rustic, etc? - how close will the fire
It is smooth saw cut native Texas limestone, probably 2-1/2" to 3" thick with chopped rough edges.
