Step 1 Plan and Research
When choosing the location of your fire pit, check your local building codes for any restrictions. It’s a good rule of thumb to keep it a safe distance from anything overly flammable, such as hanging trees and structures. Depending on whether you’re building a fire pit that’s circular or straight, you’ll need trapezoidal or square blocks. Trapezoidal are for circular pits, as they sit snug and allow you to create curves, while squares are good for straight lines and angles. You could even try a combination of both.
