Right here once more it can be as large or little as you want. Just take safety and security right into consideration. After our dimensions for size we mark those corners of the square off. Currently before we begin to remove our fire pit, how far down should we dig it?
Dig your fire pits no deeper than 3/4 of your arm's size. Why that deep? Since periodically you'll need to cleanse it out. Clean the ashes, dirt and so forth. By doing this you don't have to climb down in it to cleanse it out. You'll still be able to reach to the bottom of it with your arm and even a mop as well as grab frying pan.

Currently complete the remainder of the bottom or flooring of the pit. To make it fit right you may need to reduce several of the blocks. Use masonry saw for this. When you have your pit floor finished, start existing and also piling the block around the sides of the pit.
Relying on exactly how you wish to make it at the edges you can either join them with each other or overlap them. However to join them you'll need to make custom cuts to the bricks. Continue filling out the sides of the pit by stacking your bricks.
