We had some friends over a few weeks ago and had a great time starting a camp fire and just hanging out, drinking. It really inspired Trox and me to build an official camp fire location in the backyard.
We started leaveling the ground, since our backyard is all a downward slant. Leveling earth is really hard, you almost lose the perception of level even ground after standing there for so long digging...
"Is this level?"
"I don't know, I think?"
Please also note the kickass compost area Trox constructed...Nice!
After we dug a trench for the bricks to lay in for support, we started to cover the camp area with smooth round river rocks, transplated from our side yard. We rebuilt the firepit and threw some wood in there and gave her a test run.
Trox and I had alot of fun sitting there listening to music, and just enjoying the evening. The project is almost finished and should be all ready for intense party sessions soon!
