The next big step of my family’s big backyard project is finished! Our DIY fireplace kit was bought locally from RCP Block and Brick. It came with great instructions and took my husband about 7 hours to assemble. Not too bad!
Mixing the cement for the fireplace footing.
Wet cement before it gets leveled.
The first stages of building. It’s like a puzzle, in the sense that there are 6 different sizes of block. Just followed the diagram and things went smoothly. Each level has masonry adhesive as well.
We are very happy with our finished Semplice fireplace! Now there’s just pavers to lay and an outdoor structure left!
A great spot for future s’more making, evening talks and family get-togethers. Success!
