Outdoor Comfort



This project was inspired by something seen in a magazine. All the brick was repurposed and removed from another home. Each brick was put together with loctite for a cleaner look all around each individual planter and fireplace. Project has taken many by storm because it was done in so little time and has a lot of character. What I have learn from doing this project is that bricks take a lot of patience to work with in order for something to look great. I had very little tools at the moment of building this project in which case it becomes a lot easier when the proper tools are acquired. Something I really looked forward to after accomplishing this project was the satisfaction of enjoying this unique sitting area with a bonfire on a cold winter night.

  • Sorry loctite was not what was used it was liquid nails. Which works perfect!

  • Looks nice. I bet that fir was plenty warm.

    • Thank you. The seating ended up being about two ft away from the pit and it turned out to be perfect because when sitting around the fire you got the right amount of heat. :)

  • The re-purposed brick was a great call for this build! It brings that added character you mentioned. You’ve really created a nice place to enjoy, especially on a cold night. Was the sidewalk leading up to the bonfire area also a part of the project?

    • Thank you so much that is really nice to hear! :) Yes I made a curved pathway that was leading to the outdoor patio area from my backyard door which was a little more of a challenge.

  • Curving with brick can be tricky- but you're quite the expert now. Nice work!

    • Yes needless to say it is was a little tricky but came together at the end after a lot of adjusting and cutting of bricks. Thank you again.
