DIY Fire Pit with Adjustable Draft (for under $50!)

In this video I'll show you how to make a fire pit with an adjustable draft for less than $50. I minimized costs by building it below ground with cinder blocks.

NOTE: Although I have had no problem so far, I have been informed that the paver I used at the bottom of the pit could explode under the intense heat from a fire. Thus, I would recommend using something like fire bricks instead. Some concerns were voiced about cinder blocks, as well. Just remember that I'm not an expert, and this video is for information purposes only.

The design is based on a type of fire pit called the Dakota fire hole. Here's a good video that explains how it works:

I have found that the fire pit I built burns very hot and efficiently, and produces very little smoke once it gets going. If you put in the right kindling, it starts right up with no trouble.

Here is a complete materials list:
-1 bag drainage rock
-5 cored concreted blocks (the ones with holes)
-3 concrete cap blocks (the solid ones)
-1 one foot square patio stone (but this can explode, so don't use this, use fire bricks instead)
-4 6x9 patio stone
-8 6x6 patio stone
-1 4x96 flexible aluminum dryer vent duct
-1 4 drain grate

How to build an in ground fire pit

In this video I'll show you how I built an in ground fire pit. I used landscaping flagstone and construction adhesive. The total cost was about $80 and I've got a nice fire pit that will last for a very long time.

DIY In-Ground Firepit

Find a flat and level area before laying out your blocks that will act as the inner walls of your firepit. Measure the width and height before digging your hole. If your bottom layer is perfectly level, every layer after that should be level as well. Backfill and pack any extra gap around the outside.

Use a non-combustible material such as HVAC pipe to create an airflow vent. This will help feed oxygen to your fire. We used 5 pipe and sloped it downward to help with any drainage after rainfall. Use a 90° transition to bring your pipe to the surface and a drainage grate to finish it off.

We added some screening and local flagstone to finish off the top of our surface.

How to Make a Fire Pit Seating Area: Backyard Makeover - Thrift Diving

Last summer I created a DIY fire pit for my backyard. But since that time, the fire pit started looking like it was just floating in the backyard and it really needed a DIY fire pit seating area to anchor it. Home Depot sponsored this project, sending me the edgers, and I created the fire pit seating area for my family to entertain! Now it's ready for spring and summer! #thriftdiving #sponsored

Stay tuned because I've got more outdoor projects coming soon!

Adding a Bilge Blower to Stoke Flames & Reduce Smoke | In Ground Fire Pit

Do you want to increase the efficiency and reduce smoke for your in ground fire pit? Fire pit efficiency and smoke reduction is achieved by increasing the draft under the foundation of the fire pit. You can successfully increase the amount of air flow by adding some galvanized pipe, a dryer vent pipe and then powering the fire pit with an efficient 12 volt bilge blower thereby improving the campfire's draft. The bilge blower receives its power from a 12 volt battery that is part of my green energy station. The project was fun and the addition of the bilge blower significantly improved the draft to help stoke the flames of fire. The fire pit enhancement also was effective in helping to eliminate smoke. I have left product links of the items used in constructing this improvement in the description below.

Our backyard has a really nice bundle of trees that we really enjoy. Convenient for this project, in the most lush part of the year, there is a big opening right in the middle. I decided to put the fire pit right under that clearing. This is very important because you don't want the fire to accidentally ignite any leaves or branches that are above it. Luckily, this spot was also pretty level.

I began this project by purchasing a grill grate on which we would cook our food. It would be absolutely practical to build the fire pit so that this grate sat on the edges of the bricks, chimney style. But such a design presented a problem, if I wanted to add logs then I would have to remove the grate (which doesn't have handles) and risk spilling my food on the ground. So to allow for room to stoke the fire, I would have to suspend the grill grate over the middle of the fire pit.

At Lowe's, I found some decorative bricks that I liked and laid them out on the ground to find a size that worked. Using those bricks, I found that 14 of them would make a perfectly-sized fire pit.

I decided that 4 levels of brick would work for this project. One row would be partially buried to add foundational support and the other three would provide some protection for smaller kids around the fire. If you're doing the math at home, that's 56 bricks, ugh. So Josh and I lugged all those stones from store to Cruiser to back yard to final resting place.

I drove a stake into the center of my fire pit so that I could have a reference point when stacking our circular walls. After digging out a little bit of the ground for the first level, I started arranging the bricks. To allow for air flow, I spaced a few brick apart at the bottom. And once I had the first layer set, we just started stacking in an overlapping pattern until the walls were up.

The fire pit was done. We could sit and relax while watching the sunset, listening to the crackle of burning scrap wood...but I'm hungry and this thing needs to cook food. Remember that we needed some kind of support to hold up the grill grate? Well, as I do, I got a geeky idea. Instead of just setting two metal bars on top of the bricks and laying the grate on them, I decided to weld up a metal support that resembled Darth Vader's Tie Fighter from Star Wars.

First, I measured the distance across the fire pit to roughly the center of the bricks. Then I transferred this measurement to my shop floor with some chalk and traced out the grate in the center. I drew out the angular pieces of the Tie Fighter wings and measured them with my digital angle gauge. Using a Sharpie, I drew these angles onto some 3/4 steel square tubing. The plan was to cut these triangular notches in the top of the tube and then bend the steel using the one uncut side as a hinge. I welded up these joints and repeated the process for the other wing as well as the two longer grill supports.

After a few coats of high heat spray paint, I used some JB Weld to attach the grate to the Tie Fighter Supports and the grip was finished. I lugged that heavy thing outside to the fire pit and set it in firmly in place. My plan totally worked, I had plenty of room to add new logs on the fire, I cooked up some lunch for Josh and I, and I really like the way it looks! MUSIC:

How to Build a DIY Fire Pit in Your Backyard - Thrift Diving

I have been wanting to build a DIY fire pit in my backyard for the longest time! I bought an easy fire pit kit and decided to build it with my middle son who stayed home for Take Your Child to Work Day. While this should have only taken 1 hour, it literally took us all day. HA! Working with your child, things will ALWAYS take longer, right? :) Anyhow, it was a fun day, and we finished it off by inviting over some friends for roasted marshmallows! If you've been wanting a fire pit in your backyard, it's much easier than you think to build one! :)
