We’ve been talking about building a fire pit since we bought our house six months ago. Work and time and a wedding and sunny patios with cold beer got in the way. Then the leaves started to turn. Squirrels started burying walnuts in our flower pots. Our sensitive poodle got extra snuggly. Fall arrived.

It’s time for a fire.

The internets told us building our own simply fire pit wouldn’t be too hard – just fifty bucks and an hour or so. Today I learned the internet is always right. Always. We documented our adventure to prove it:

Step 1: Rip up the soil.

Step 2: Level the bricks and let the wife relocate a little worm because she is a wealth of compassion:

Step 3: Allow a toy poodle to inspect.

Step 4: Bask in the glory that is the finished product. Bask.

This is going to be a lovely fall.
