Taking the man cave concept outdoors, this post centers around the great American ideal of fireside conversation, s’mores, and beverages spiked with whiskey. Let’s please ignore the fact that temps are creeping into the ’80s in Nashville this week. Instead, how about we stoke a fire, and have a look at some of my favorite fire pits for the fall?
Holy mother of all fire pits! This one was actually done by Nashville's own Eric Stengal Architecture.


And get a load of this "cauldron" fire pit or "fire bowl" in Sonoma, CA. City ordinances don't allow for wood burning fire pits in this city, so a gas line was installed below the ground and a fire ring was installed within the fire bowl.

This fire pit in Washington State integrates so perfectly with the landscaping that I'm pretty sure I'd just stay outdoors and roast weenies around the clock.

Also not too shabby? This outdoor fireplace built by
Stratton Exteriors here in Nashville.

And I love the way this recessed fire pit sits right inside the deck on this San Francisco home:

These are all dream-come-true fire pits, of course, but there are also a huge number of handy fire pit DIYs on the world wide web. Here are
eight "easy to build" fire pit designs courtesy of the DIY Network. Got any fire pit dreams of your own?
