    Chimenea / Fire Pit? 18th Oct 16 at 8:39 PM
    Can anyone advise on these? I like the idea of being able to sit out in the garden when the weather is colder without having to venture into the muddy bit where we have bonfires. Is there a low cost alternative?

    Otherwise; metal - (it rusts) or ceramic (it breaks) Any hints? Thanks.

    old washing machine drum would be a dirt cheap option.

    We love our chimnea, the rusted colour just makes it look used and loved.

    An old lorry or 4x4 wheel works as well.
