Coming from a landscaping background I'd suggest laying out a couple trails of gravel or pavers to get from the shed to the fire pit and then mulching everything else. That way you can plant in the mulched area later if you want
I 100% agree. clear pathways of permeable materials is always the way to go. And feeding your soil with mulch can only be beneficial in the long run.
@Myron Perish Yeah, I have to agree with you. Plus the natural mulch will feed your soil microbes over time and since the plan is to have a desirable space for your kids and family stay away from petroleum whenever possible.
@PaganWizard I disagree with that for 2 reasons, first it takes away from the nature look and second recycled tires still give off a petroleum smell which I think would be very unpleasant to sit around. Have you ever been on one of those recycled rubber playgrounds for kids? Stinks horrible and I am sure the chemical isn't very good for our systems.
I agree with you, but rather than using real wood chip mulch, I would probably go with the rubber variety. It's made from recycled tires, which keeps them out of landfills, and it holds it's color a lot longer than tree mulch. The rubber mulch is also friendlier to the skin when your kids are running around acting like, well, kids, and they fall, no splinters.
This… pavers will be more kind to lawn chairs and kids and less mud in the shop…
Looks good! Only thing I'm wondering is if the fire is not getting enough air. I think you need to remove a couple blocks at the bottom. Which might be hard at this point with them being glued together. Good luck, again looks great.
Breeo says as long as you have it resting on the insert ring, there are four holes located North, East, South, and West on it that allow air to travel down to the bottom of the pit. No need to make extra ventilation at the bottom unless you really want to.
Found your site a few weeks back and have been following this project since the beginning. I too am an engineer (ME) and have been doing woodworking as a hobby since I was young since my dad's hobby was wood working. I turned my hobby into my fulltime job (leaving the business world) until my primary contractor filed bankruptcy on me and I had to go back into the regular work force to support my family. Several years ago I bought a small hobby farm, and my son and I have built several complete buildings (animal shelter, storage barn, workshop, wood barn, etc), and I am thoroughly enjoying watching your thinking processes as you are going through exactly what I went through several years ago. Thank you for this great series, and I am now subscribed and will be following all your projects.
For the area around the fire pit, I say go with gravel with a curbing of some sort to keep it out of the grass. Kids and mud mix very well, you just need to have a place to hose them off before going into the house.
Have to admit, I cackle like a loon, EVERY TIME at "construction mediocrity." 😂 Thanks for the laughs. The project is turning out great!
Hey man, loving your project. I've been following you along.As for the smokeless ring, when I look on their site, it states that the secondary combustion takes place with air coming up between the double wall. However with yours inside the rings, I think you might be blocking off some of the air that needs to come from the bottom. Look under LEARN / HOW WE'RE SMOKELESS
Yes, however these pits are designed to be put in stone surrounds like this. There are enough cracks in the stones plus the ring around the top is nowhere near air-tight
Love the backyard concept. Don't over do it on the landscaping. Flagstone would look nice around the pit and I guess would be easier with chairs. Then just get some natural playground mulch for the rest. Keep it looking like a forest floor and not some hardscaped patio.
Nice! I can’t wait for custom build furniture, shed organization, etc.
Love watching you create this shed project come to life. Can’t wait to see it done. What I would do is mount small outdoors speakers underneath your roof for your tv via Bluetooth when your watching the games outdoors.
I think my choice for the ground around the fire pit would be a thin layer of gravel. I feel like pavers would just give too many hard lines to look at. Gravel would also probably be a lot easier to lay down
Another great video. Project is really coming along and looking good.
Love my Breeo X24, be prepared to have a lot of firewood on hand for the x30, love this series on the build!
This is great. I have really enjoyed all your content. Love the TV. I made one in my shop that is flush to the rafters and drops down when I want to watch. Advantage of having an unfinished ceiling.
Great job! This shed is coming along nicely.Gravel around the fire pit would be a very easy option, but if you ever want to walk barefoot or with thin sole shoes, it will hurt a bit.One option I would suggest is large flat stones you can also use which some people use for paving. It looks a bit better than pavers (more natural) and it doesn't hurt your feet when you walk on it.
Love the project! I would put some pavers and gravel around the fire pit (18" or so) just in case of some hot embers getting out of the pit, and then mulch or similar material everywhere else.
Great video. I am really enjoying the series. My vote for ground cover is pavers around the fire pit for chairs and wood chips everywhere else
Being honest I would love a shop greatness blanket to cover up in while sitting outside at camp watching the games. So don’t say no one would want one. Keep the videos coming
I would think about doing 3/8" or smaller gravel around the firepit and up to the shed, it'll be a lot less work to do than pavers, and provide a level of drainage / erosion control.Pavers would look really nice. It's hard to tell how much of a slope you have from the videos. Depending on how bad it is, it may require a lot of digging on one side and building up / retaining on the other to get and keep the area level, and problems that do arise may take a few years to show up.
One thing that came to mind is venting for the tv.. I imagine the heat from the tv being on in an enclosed box might damage it. Maybe it needs a couple of vents or holes at the top just to allow for air to circulate.
Yeah I'm going to keep an eye on it during the warmer months to see how warm that box gets, won't be a big deal to add some vents to the top/back
I've always wanted to run a metal pipe underneath the fire pit with a fan in the shed on a smart dimmer switch so I could control the airflow to the fire. It would make it easy to get it less smokey even as it's burning down and make sure the wood burns completely to ash. Or restart a dying fire.
nice video. now i know where i got my idea for my wall with wall design, or maybe my wife wanted it when she saw me once watching one of your videos months past. so i complied. anyways, as for the mud and flooring, how about a larger perimeter of rocks, you can purchase or sift from your property, which ever yields better. then around the rock diameter, you can wood chip it up. it should be far enough from the firepit. just a thought, something I would do. i wlll need to show this video to my wife so i can buy one of those breeo pits. this way i don't have to spend time making holes and sanding metal for smooth safe finish. thanks for the video bro.
I also think you need to vent the TV box, also any sun that hits that black paint or TV early in the day will heat it up when the TV is not even on. A bonus is you can also unlock it the box and swing it inside to watch TV while in the shop in hot or cold weather, or just whenever. As to the ground, I would sod it, but then you have to cut the grass also.
Hey!! Little kids and mud mix perfectly well, thank you very much. It's muddy kids indoors and parents that don't mix very well.
Pavers for around the fireplace with a small half moon retaining wall to keep paver base level and shield from the high ground on the back (front?) side!
Plant grass.Make sure over head trees are thinned so sunlight comes through. Also make sure the area drains well. Nice project. What’s the diameter of the fire pit that breeo sent you?
That is great progress on your project and fun and educational video as always - thanks! I would go with gravel or pavers next to the fire pit and mulch further away. For gravel you want to have a good base with heavy duty landscape fabric and hexagon mesh to keep it from being washed/kicked away. For mulch put heavy duty landscape fabric first so it won't sink into the much. Notice the pattern of doing good base so things don't sink into the mud - don't ask how I would know 🙂.
It looks really nice !
I vote gravel! With pavers for a pathway into the shed
Real men don't ask for help, they engineer!
He used a pulley, calm down.
Is this a Kanye/Lex inspired comment? Lol
Right into the ED sometimes. ;) usually saying “well, it seemed like a good idea at the time! No, I didn’t think that… [insert cause of accident here].” I know we aren’t always the best at it, but at least try to be safe in your backyard engineering projects!
cover the ground with pine needle mulch. It will still give the "real" outdoor feel and cover the mud.
When you pulled the fire pit up using you redneck system, I wanted to grunt like Tim the tool-man from Home Improvement.
I've always thought pavers look really nice. Maybe an area around the fire pit and then pavers leading to the door of the totally awesome shed and another paver path heading off towards the house? Whatever you end up doing, I'm looking forward to watching 🙂
Looking AWESOME!!! Yeah maybe a couple rows of pavers around the fire pit, a level space for chairs. Then surrounding area wood chips are great to keep mud down, and kids clean ;)
I would say for ground cover a thick layer of the large mulch might work. Sorta the wood mulch they use at playgrounds.
Flag Stone around the fire pit with a walk to the cabin would be both visually appealing and functional
Project is looking good! That was a good first game to watch on that TV! GO VOLS!!
Little kids love mud! I would say pavers or just decomposed granite with a paver edge. I would look at both and compare the cost. Go with what is cheaper.
Awesome! Are you worried about the TV overheating on warm days?
looks like the TV might overheat in the closed position. You've effectively blocked off all airflow
Looks great. Love the cedar.
The first time I seen your solution to raising the fire pit, was actually on the Food Network. It was a show that featured a chef by the name of Alton Brown. He rigged up something very similar to this, to lower a turkey into an outdoor deep fryer. His purpose was to keep you safely away from the deep fryer in case it decides to erupt like Mt. St. Helen. BTW, if you've never had deep fried turkey, you're going to want to try it.
@Shop Nation Same here!!!
I think I've watched just about every Good Eats episode by Alton, I remember the turkey frying episode vividly! haha
I’ve got a paver project coming up in the spring so I vote for you doing pavers so YOU can work out the wrinkles in MY project! 😂
That's what I'm here for!
Smokey would be proud! Good tip on centering on branches. “Construction mediocrity”😂😂😂
Roll Tide! Love the channel and your current build.
Hola! 🖐It's coming together really nice. That is a cool pit. How about woodchips around the firepit area? Take care and have a good one, Adios! 👊
Nice. Just add some vents (bottom & top) to the TV frame. Even a LCD TV produces heat, plus you basically enclosed and sealed it into a small scale greenhouse
you could use playground bark chips on the ground. To keep it from looking like the mother in-law's house.
I used rubber mulch and it works great and lasts a long time.
I like this idea
Wood chips around the pit, it’ll keep it w a natural feel but prevent the mud. Downside - might catch fire but meh…
If you angle the glass forward or backward in the window frame you will not get as many reflections.
Get in touch with a local tree service company and have them dump you off a few loads of mulch. They are always looking for a place to dump their wood chips and will still give it an outdoor look. A good thick layer should last a long time.
Wow way to go!👍
Gotta do a putting green around the fire pit!!
Now we're talking...
I really want one of those fire pits but I don't think there is an HOA in California that would ever allow anything but a gas burning firepit. I guess I'm gonna have to move....some day!
Actually Mud and kids mixes really well. They come in covered from head to toe in mud, and then it mixes really good with your carpet, furniture and walls. It is then that you have to decide who your wife is going to kill first. The kids for playing outside in the mud or the father for creating the mud pit in the first place. lol It is looking really good.
Great job 👍 I think fake grass would be good 😁 put some flag stones around the fire pit, but the rest do fake grass
Breeo 30” with lid and accessories ~$1750
i would use a mulch of some kind there. Pine bark might work best, but definitely not pine straw. It is possible that it can catch fire if any sparks fly out of the pit. Extend out the the rock around the pit by another 6-12 inches and then mulch in the seating area around it. Then try and sow some grass around the rest of the area to cut down on the muddy small kids.
Most excellent, my dude.
agree with someone else below dealing with electronics you should vent that tv box to expand the life of it if not it could burn out being in a solid black box and sealed with gasket. could even do a few little cpu fans in the back of it
Funny. The first thing I noticed was the mud. I thought perhaps pine chips/mulch
How about 25 feet from the shed? Its combustible. Fire code in your area may be different.
where did you find that cedar at that price? I've been looking to do the same thing to my porch, but have put it off because of price.
Home Depot, comes in a 6-pack for $28
Coming from Texas, I realize it may be difficult to follow other CFP teams; O.H.I.O!Have you decided if you are a Buckeyes fan, yet? I think watching the Peach Bowl would be a great idea out by the shed!❤🎉❤🎉
@Shop Nation I think OSU will pull you in! Georgia game should help solidify that relationship. Loving the shed series, btw!
I was pretty blatantly only playing University of Tennessee footage - that is where my heart lies.
Decomposed granite. Around the fire pit and deck…DG is the way to go.
Pretty cool oven you built and put a TV in it.
They do make stainless steel finish nails for nail guns. Galvanized nails always discolor and stain the wood over time.
Definitely pavers. It's much easier to set chairs or benches on and not have the legs dig in. Plus, a quick blast with the leaf blower will clear any leaves or pine needles off that would otherwise get caught in gravel. When it comes to projects around the house, I always say, "Do it nice, or do it twice"
Experts do it right the first timeProfessionals know how to hide their mistakes
I personally hate rounded rocks that go everywhere especially with little kids. Go with crushed blue stone that you see in paths at nature centers or go with local mulch. Mulch is great in the woods.
I would just throw a butt-ton of 3/4" gravel down for the entire front apron/campfire area and call it a day.
Decomposed granite around the fire pit
This shed is going to be the neighborhood hang out for your son and his friends. The best part of that is. You can keep an eye on them while they think their foot loose and free. Job Well Done Travis.
For the ground cover, contact a local lawn & plant shop and look for a local/native low-maintenance cover. Usually there is some variety of clover that you can plant or have laid down that does not require mowing since it never grows more than a couple inches tall but the roots will hold the dirt in place, prevent a mud pit, and only requires the occasional watering (if that).
I need to take exception to your statement that “kids and mud don’t mix”. They do! It’s kids and mud and inside the home that don’t mix!
Cool video, as always. Q: Where can I get a Panic at the Glueup shirt? I need that in my life, lol.
Will be available very soon!
Decomposed granite walking paths and bark mulch for the rest of the area
Pavers are always a good option around a fire pit but you should also check out decomposed granite. Compacted gravel base for drainage an then add a compacted layer of decomposed granite on top - should be able to find multiple colors to choose from. You’ll also need edging of some kind (pavers or just landscape edging) to keep it all nice and tidy.
Little kids and mud don’t mix?! Who told you that? They mix really well, kids just love to play in the mud 😈
You were wrong when you said kids and mud don’t mix they do mix that’s the problem lol she’d is looking good can’t wait to see it finished
57 stone around the entire building and firepit is the way to go. Cheap and effective to keeping things dry. That's how we did it around here in central NC.
actually kids and mud mix perfectly 🤣
I disagree. Little kids and mud do mix. Just not the ideal concoction for parents to deal with when they go screaming back through the house! hahalookin good man!
Artificial turf around the fire pit and front of the shed.
Personally i'd stay away from gravel - if you try and leaf blow around there you're going to make a mess of the gravel.
Yeah kind of what I'm afraid of...tons of leaves in the fall
Have you seen April Wilkerson’s video on a flip wall? I’m thinking you could do that with your TV. kzclip.net/video/wK2MH1tymjc/бейне.html
Whatever you choose for landscaping I'm sure it'll be great.....but please, for love all thats "shed greatness", trash the blue plastic Walmart chair and build your own proper wooden Adirondack Chair fit for a backyard hideaway....keep at brotha, always good stuff!
More expensive and time consuming, but pavers, with a solid base so they don’t sink or go anywhere over time, I think are a great option. We built a backyard fire pit last year and also built a paver circle about 5’ in each direction of the pit as a seating area. Really happy with it and don’t regret the extra work vs gravel
Crushed granite is amazing stuff all on its own, but if you want to be super "boujie" you can set flagstone in a layer of it in an ever-widening ring around your fire pit, leaving space between the flagstone so the crushed granite becomes your "grout". I'm having fun watching this build!
The shed is really coming along. Great job! I would put som bark or wood shavings on the ground 😃👍🏻
The project is looking great. I would chip a load of wood and put wood/bark chippings all in front of the camp house. As pavers will become real slimy under all the falling leaves. Or gravel as that will lead you down to the camp house nicely.
some kind of wild grass maybe?
I LOVE my Breeo Double Flame (don’t think they make that model anymore). Works amazingly and hope to do an insert like this in the future!
Dont forget to get smokeless you need to keep the firewood level below the top of your fire pit. Great video.
You're going to like that swing away grill. I have something similar and I love it. Just like with a meat smoker, but not as intense, you can get different flavors out of your meats with different species of firewood.
Hoping to get sone nice construction pine burgers going soon 😂
Watch out, the shed and firepit is starting to get redneckish.
Children and mud mix great, they are just a giant make work project.Save your marriage, use pavers.
That’s crazy having a tv outside….but I love it! Well done…
