So I'm working on a project right now that will require a fire-pit and three crafted flagstone benches. So, I have an idea on size, but I wanted to get a couple of opinions. First. When do you guys think a fire-pit gets "too" big. Basically what do you think the max size would be in out-side diameter. Second. Height and how high to make it. Part of me wants to make it seating wall height, but I'm wondering if that will be a shade high. I want to be careful also as I might make the benches the same height. Third. How far back would you set the benches from the pit. Basically not so close to get burned, but not too far away. Thanks. Here is a pic. The shaded area is where the pit and 3 benches will be. Basically there could be a fourth bench, but that area will be left open so if you were sitting at one of the three benches you'll have an open view of the beach.
