A couple of weeks ago lightening struck our tree and a quarter of it fell down. We we stuck with the question of "What to do...?" The answer finally came to us...LETS MAKE A FIRE PITT!! Yay! Little did we know just how much work it would take. The picture above shows a little bit of our clean up effort. (We were piling up the brush into the back of my brother's truck to drag it to the other side of our yard)
After about 4 hours of work this is what it looked like.
One pile of our log stacks. You couldn't even imagine how hard it is to lug a bunch of huge logs across the yard by hand..lol.
We put the smaller logs and the kindling in a separate pile close to the fire pit.
The picture above shows our finished fire pit, with our log seats :). Pretty, huh?
This is just a random shot of part of our yard.
- You can make use of anything
- It darn hard work cleaning up a lightning struck tree
- Big logs make great seats!
- Spiders love the wood
Just wanted to share with you all!
