A fire pit or a fire hole can vary from a pit dug in the ground to an elaborate gas burning structure of stone, brick, and metal. The common feature of fire pits is that they are designed to contain fire and prevent it from spreading.
Scale and shape are important in a fire pit design, too. Angles and straight lines in a home or yard equal the same in a fire pit. The rustic bend of this version is tempered with a cool almost-white stone selection and flat edge at the top.
Determining the best location for your fire pit, considering factors such as convenience, space availability and safety. Determining the best size for your fire pit, depending on how many people you plan to accommodate and the room you will need for outdoor seating and unrestricted traffic flow.
Fire pit liners are highly recommended and may be required by your local municipality. In addition to adding a finished look, a steel liner keeps excessive amounts of heat from absorbing into the surrounding stone. By reflecting the heat up and out, it adds to the life of the stone and creates a safer environment. It also increases the feeling of warmth for those around the fire.
