Permanent Fire Pits are are fixed structures, either built in place using long lasting materials such as bricks and mortar, rocks and stone or are so heavy that moving them is not an option. You have the advantage of been able to design them to blend in with your existing patio or yard, even matching the materials already in place. The only limitations for this is your own imagination. If you don’t have the budget or building skills for elaborate projects then the easy option is to buy a pre-designed permanent fire pit kit that you can easily put together yourself.

HEAT: Generally, heat is provided from an outside source, such as a match or spark, and then the fire produces enough of its own heat to be self-supporting. If we reduce the temperature of a burning substance below its kindling point, the fire in all fire pits will go out. Sometimes enough heat is generated within substances, such as in a pile of oily rags, to cause them to burst into flames. This is called spontaneous combustion. Certain bacteria in moist hay can cause the temperature to rise rapidly, causing the hay to burn. These sources of heat cannot be ignored when considering fire prevention and safety, and in deciding what to burn in your outdoor fire pit.

Now that we’ve found our place to build it let’s measure out a 3 foot by 3 foot square. Here again it can be as large or small as you want. Just take safety into consideration. After our measurements for size we mark those corners of the square off. Now before we begin to dig out our fire pit, how far down should we dig it? Dig your fire pits no deeper than 3/4 of your arms length. Why that deep? Because every so often you’ll need to clean it out. Clean out the ashes, dirt and so on. This way you don’t have to climb down in it to clean it out. You’ll still be able to reach to the bottom of it with your arm or even a broom and pick up pan. Using a standard garden shovel we dig our fire pit within the measurements we marked off. Taking care to only dig about 1 1/2 deep. Or 3/4 arms length. After digging out your pit make sure that the sides of the pit are level and smooth. Removing any rocks or stones that would keep the sides and bottom from being level. The reason you do this is when you place your bricks or stone in there to make the sides and bottom, it will also be level and perpendicular. You can even use sand to help you level the bottom of it. Now that you have your pit dug out and a big pile of dirt laying up there, its time to install the interior of the fire pit. At this time you should already have your chosen bricks or rock or stone to use on the inside. You can use cement to strengthen the sides and bottom of it but I don’t see the need, since the fire will be in the ground anyway. For this case we just use regular landscaping rock or brick. Then just lay the first layer of brick in the bottom around the sides. Now fill in the rest of the bottom or floor of the pit. To make it fit right you may have to cut some of the bricks. Use a masonry saw for this. Once you have your pit floor completed, begin laying and stacking the brick around the sides of the pit. Depending on how you want to make it at the corners you can either join them together or overlap them. But to join them you’ll have to make custom cuts to the bricks. Continue filling up the sides of the pit by stacking your bricks. Once you’ve reached the top of the fire pit, you may notice that the actual fire place will be smaller. But that’s OK, we have a nice small fire pit to enjoy. From here you can do things like creating a deck out around the fire pit. Again your imagination is the limit.
