Here is our 2nd big project of the summer: an outdoor firepit.
I don't have a "before" picture, but just picture lots of dirt and weeds! We added a circular brick base to set the brick firepit on, then added grass around it for low maintenance.
Wow, we love it so much. And so do the chickens (who are getting big fast) and who are often seen perched on top of the pit.
Here's the chicken coop you can see in the background (which was our 1st big project of the summer). Check out the full coop post here.
So far this summer we've enjoyed roasting hot dogs and smores, and had a bonfire or two. I hope to venture on to tin foil dinners and maybe dutch oven cooking if I can work up the nerve.
For now, we're loving the new "view".
