Fire pit view of White Mountains
These folks have a home in the White Mountains. The yard is sloped, and they wanted a small patio with a fire pit for their family get-togethers. Since the yard is sloped, the down-side of the patio required a retaining wall in order to make a level patio. For safety’s sake as well as for the purpose of extra seating, we created a “sitting wall” on top of the retaining wall. This is great for when there is extra company, and also helps to prevent anyone from falling off the edge of the patio. There are drainage holes incorporated into the junction of these walls/patio. The fire pit was a kit that included a grate. They love their new fire pit patio, and are thinking of expanding on this in the future by adding a walk. Now they can sit outdoors to enjoy the view while making up some s’mores!
