Stone Fire Pit Designs
The popularity of fire pit designs continues to soar, regardless of the sea-
son. Whether lounging around an inviting open fire with family and friends on a cool and breezy summer afternoon . . . . . or warming up next to a toasty outdoor blaze on a crisp winter evening, the sights, sounds and aroma of a crackling wood fire are truly irresistible!
As man's first building material,

terrace that follows incorporates a sunken fire pit encircled by matching stones that have been cut to fit
around the perim-
Boulders can also be used creatively in fire pit designs.The example at right -- set on a bed of crushed
rock -- utilizes boulders of varying sizes to surround both the fire pit opening, as well as to provide
substantial seating areas from which to cozy up to the flames.
The following image captured by the talented folks at Roger Wade Studio features a striking -- albeit
highly unusual -- fire surround of massive boulders arranged both vertically and horizontally!
And finally, though the bioethanol burner featured here is not crafted from stone, I've included it because
of the stunning arrangement of stones that "frame" it. The gigantic boulder spanning the top appears to almost
float above the much smaller stones that support it!
