Outdoor Fireplace

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!

The first stages of building.  It's like a puzzle, in the sense that there are 6 different size.  Just followed the diagram and things went smoothly.  Each level has masonry adhesive as well.
