patio idea...you can build that firepit for under 100.00 go to any big box home improvement store and browse the garden dept.. look for 12" retaining wall blocks. For a modest sized pit, buy 26 of them and stack them 13 to a circle.
GREAT IDEA!! FOR BACKYARD FUN, NO BUGS!! All you need is a package of Mason jars, some cotton string and some liquid citronella (find it in big jugs at any home-improvement store and even some grocery stores). Use a hammer and nail to poke a hole in the top of the lid, then pour in the citronella, put the top on and drop in the wick. Allow the string about 10 minutes to soak up some oil.
