Do-it-yourself projects can seem daunting and complicated, especially when they involve gas and fire.
Luckily, there are a few ways to take the guesswork and potential risks out of building a DIY fire pit from the ground up.
Here are three easy ways to create the perfect outdoor fire feature without actually having to do it all yourself!
#1 HPC UNFINISHED ENCLOSURE KIT
HPC’s unfinished gas fire pit kit ships with everything you need to make your own fire pit and get it up and running quickly.
The welded, 22-gauge steel frame and Hardie board shell create a strong foundation while giving you the freedom to finish the outside however you want.
Mix and match stones to create a unique look, or use tile, stacked stone, masonry bricks, or metal in a color that matches the rest of your outdoor space.
Customize this kit by choosing between natural gas and liquid propane fuels, a match-lit or electronic ignition system, and the size of the enclosure.
Lava rock media is included, but you can always upgrade to fire glass or fireballs to create a modern burning display.
For gas installations, you’ll need to have a licensed professional install the gas line and hook up the fire pit.
WHICH FUEL TYPE SHOULD I USE?
#2 NECESSORIES FIRE RING INSERT
The Necessories Steel Fire Ring Insert is a great solution for creating a concrete fire pit.
The fire ring is made out of durable steel and features a 31-inch width and 7-inch height.
You simply need to construct a shell using stacked stone, masonry bricks, or concrete blocks, then insert the fire ring inside the opening.
Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying beautiful fires in your very own backyard!
For an all-in-one DIY outdoor fire pit and grill, go with the steel ring insert and cooking grate combo.
#3 FIREROCK PRE-ENGINEERED FIRE PIT KIT
If you’re wondering how to build a gas fire pit that’s low-maintenance, durable, safe, and easy to assemble, then a pre-engineered kit from FireRock is the way to go.
The modular design takes the guesswork out of building a fire pit from scratch, making installation a breeze.
You have the freedom to finish the masonry stone with the material that best matches your outdoor decor, and you can even boost the height of the fire pit by adding riser blocks to the foundation.
This pre-engineered kit comes standard as a wood burning fire pit, but you do have the option to upgrade to gas.
As you can see, creating a fire feature that’s unique to your space doesn’t need to be complicated.
With all three of these options, you get a completely customized finish and total creative freedom to bring your dream fire pit to life!
