I Gotta Have More Lava Rock

Friday night we hosted my work BBQ and christened our new DIY firepit. Here's how we did it:

Step 1 - Dig a hole. About a foot deep with a 4 foot diameter.

Step 2 - Fill the bottom with lava rock.

Step 3 - Line the sides with bricks and fill the gaps with lava rock. We got some bricks for free from a friend, but I'm pretty sure it would be easy to find some on Craigslist.

Step 4 - Get Keven to prettify with suculents, moss and some stepables. Throw in some spare logs for seats and...

BAM! FIREPIT!

New Firepit

Total cost? The bricks were free. The lava rock was $5 for a bag. That's it!

Also, lava rock is the new cow bell.
