Do it yourself – natural stone bench with a small fire pit

Thanks to our friends over at building-a-house.com for their contribution:

We wanted a small stone bench with a table that doubles as a fire pit in our garden so can we do that our self we asked? Well sure we can and so can you. As you can see in the attached step by step photos we just went ahead to go for it, and I need to mention we had no prior experience in working with either stones nor cement.

Our project needed the following materials, allot of natural stones whatever looks nice and you can find in your area or if needed you can buy some at your construction material supplier. 2 bags of cement, about 10 bags of sand, some leftover plastic pieces or styropor as filling material like old plastic bottles (to fill the gaps between the stones, see images), then for the cover some old broken tiles and cement plus filler (grout) in the colors of your liking. The quantities of the materials of course vary depending of the size of the garden bench and fire pit you choose. For more details please see this page here.
