Brick Pit design suggestions?

Postby lure buddy » Wed Aug 19, 2009 4:34 pm

I am thinking of building a brick pit at the house. I was thinking of one that would have an exposed fit pit for open grilling and just the nice old night fires. Also it needs to be a smoker so I was wanting it to have an inclused section for smoking. If you guys have any ideas on a design let me know?

Thanks
Bobby

Not to discourage you but have you thought about how long you plan on staying in your house? What some Sellers think is a great improvement many Buyers think is a detriment. Just saying... .

I have some scrap marble counter tops that I want to use to really make it look good. I have thought about it remaining with the house when I move but I just bought the house three weeks ago and plan on staying a long time.
