For the last couple of years, Josh and I have been talking about building a fire pit. We have a tiny portable one, but it just didn’t give us the feeling of raging fire without the fear of melting / warping the cheap metal (we bought it cheap, so we got what we paid for).[Read more…] about We built a fire pit!
