Top 3 Low Cost Fire Pits You Can Make Today

March 2, 2019

Fire pits are one of the amazing things you could ever built on your back yard. Whether you invite guests often or have a lot of family members, fire pits are great way spend free time with loved ones. In today' post, we go over how you can make your own fire pit as DIY. But, always check your municipal fire pit rules first. Several Maryland towns and cities don’t allow open fires within their limits. Although, we are moving into spring, there are still cold nights left. Experience of fire pit after a long day of work and at chilly nights is priceless. Without waiting more, let's get started. 

1. Drum Solo


Who would ever have thought of turning the drum from a busted washing machine into a DIY fire pit? It pushes the limits of both combustion airflow efficiency and minimalist outdoor design. With this easy type of drum solo fire pit prepare yourself to be wowed by the bonfire's mesmerizing flames and come closer together with friends and family outdoors.

2. Blocks


Cinder blocks lend themselves well to a variety of projects around the house. To more firmly secure the assembly, an optional step would be to put construction adhesive where the blocks join one another. Wall block sizes vary by style and market. Use the quantity in the material list as a guide. Also, when purchasing wall block, remember that some block has an interlocking lip on the bottom for use in retaining walls, not stacked block projects.

3. Rocks - Simplest As It Gets

For an artistic-looking fire pit, instead of evenly shaped bricks, grab several unique rough rocks, and construct an overlaid stone fire pit. If your pieces are hearty enough (pictured is above) you won’t need any cement for this pit either — but use common sense when building up your walls. For the center, line the bottom of your fire pit with one or two inches of sand. The outside of your fire pit should be lined as well, and no grass or other yard matter should be within two feet of your pit. Occasionally maintained, this is a zero-dollar DIY fire pit that’s bound to last a lifetime.
