Great work @Ianna_2152, that looks terrific. Many thanks for sharing.

 

Fire pits are becoming really popular, aren't they? Workshop members have recently been discussing them in this thread - DIY fire pit ideas.

 

Let me extend a very warm welcome to the Workshop community. It's great to have you join us. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your other projects soon.

Howdy Did you use firebricks or just regular bricks and pavers?

I have rocks everywhere down the back paddock can I use them for a fire pit or do they explode with the heat.  Thanks.

Thanks for joining the discussion and a very warm welcome to Workshop. I hope you find the site to be informative, inspirational and plenty of fun.

 

Do you know what types of rocks they are? If you don't perhaps you could take a photo and share it with the community.

Hi there, Are we allowed to use a firepit like this in Christchurch?  Restrictions on outdoor BBQ's, open fires, will affect the use of a firepit, I would think.
Thanks for your advice

You should check with your local council @PeterMairehau. For example, in my area you are not allowed to have an open fire in your backyard other than for the purpose of cooking food. So I imagine most people just have a sausage or a marshmellow nearby to cover themselves!
