Build a brick fire pit for your backyard

DIY Backyard Fire Pit
A simple brick firepit you can build in a weekend!

Who doesn’t like the idea of being able to unwind in a beautiful backyard after a hard day’s work?

And while you’re at it, wouldn’t a nice fire make the experience that much more pleasant?

When I think of fire pits, my mind typically drifts back to cool summer and fall evenings with friends, roasting marshmallows, enjoying lively conversations around a cozy, snapping fire.
