Fire pit base in the countryside begins with the arrangement of the complex excavation work – a place in the future fire deepen about 0.1-0.3 m with a diameter of 0.5-1 m. Subject to protect hearth solid walls, a height of about 0.2 0.3 m, the space around it and you can not bridge. In order to protect herself from the ashes used strip steel with a galvanized coating of which is bent ring with a diameter smaller than the diameter of the hearth exactly the width of the masonry. Install the ring of fire pit base directly on the ground, in the center of the circle.
Around the ring and outside it poured gravel, then lay brick, block and masonry cement based refractory mortar. As a result – a ring of metal is inside the stone. You can also put the steel ring not before laying, but by its end – at the choice of the master. Planning fireplace ready.

Suitable drum and a washing machine with a previously extracted from plastic parts and the central axis. However, it is possible to use any objects with a sufficient diameter for fire pit base, regardless of their shape – square, circular or even oval. The main thing that rim height was not less than 3-5 cm. This is enough to hold the ashes and coals within the area for a fire.
