From the Beginning:

My name is Darian, I am a Senior At AHS, And will be spending the summer working on my senior project. My project is to build a fire-pit in our back yard.

These are the concept pictures I have chosen. I like the built in seating. My mom likes the built in planters. We found this firepit in Smokey Point at American Stone.

My mother is a gardener, and has been working her way around the back perimeter of the yard building a retaining wall with gardens, It is slow going for her because she gathers the rocks wherever she can get them from, and uses her own compost for the soil.

Where the gardens end is where I begin.

Now, we are off to find some rocks.


  1. It looks like your working hard gathering the rocks. I am sure you will do a very good job. You are a very creative and talented person.
    I know it will turn out great.

  2. I dont envy you hauling those rocks...we just did it & its a chore. Love that your entire family will benifit & enjoy your project for years to come.
    Just think years from now you can show it to your children and say "that" was my first project!
