Fall is approaching and it's time to spark up the fire pit and an easy way to get the entertaining going. Use leftover dryer lint, stuff it in a toilet paper roll, wrap it in newspaper and voila - DIY fire starter.
Building a Fire Pit 36" cardboard concrete form - 48" cardboard concrete form (or for less money substitute a 4x8 sheet of hardboard to make both forms) - 10 (80#) bags of concrete mix - 2 (10' lengths of 3/8") rebar - 25 firebricks - One half-gallon bucket of refractory cement (sold at a brickyard) - 120 face bricks - 5 (80#) bags of Type N mortar mix
**When I get a house, I am sooo doin this!! Dig a deep hole four feet around. Purchase 25 pavers and 12 flagstone pavers. We bought ours from Menards. We also put two bags of river rock in the bottom. It's so easy, we did it in just a little over an hour.
