Almost everyone loves hanging out by the fire pit while lounging in a yard. Here are a few fire pit ideas that might inspire you to build or buy one.
Essentially, to make a fire pit only a hole is required in order to safely contain a fire. This can be as simple as digging a hole in the ground, or as complex as hollowing out a brick or rock pillar. A wood burning fire pit should be located at least ten feet (three metres) away from structures for safety. Use of a fire pit in adverse conditions should be avoided, and basic fire safety precautions apply.
There are a number of benefits to a gas fire pit. It’s easy to start, there’s no mess, there’s no smoke, and it can be placed closer to the house. For purists, however, burning wood is one of the primal reasons to even have a fire pit. For the best of both worlds, consider a wood-burning fire pit with a gas starter. One popular trend is to install a gas starter with a switch that can be operated either locally, from inside the house, or with a mobile app.
Many homeowners are using fire pits for warmth, entertainment and cooking or as focal points for an outdoor living space. Some recent trends have included the modification of compression tank ends to create a fire bowl that can be placed in the ground or on legs.
