Fire pit area

It was time to say goodbye to our kids sand pit & cubby house and hello BBQ summer days and winter firer pit nights. 

we have used merbau screens for the fence with Un-Real hedge panels & created our own custom bench seat utilised more merbau screens also. 

this took us multiple weekends but the end result is totally worth it! 

cost wise, the fence was around $2000 & the bench seat/paving area was about the same including the pavers & rocks ect.

Another fantastic project you've put together there. What a transformation that has made to the whole yard.

Re: Fire pit area

This looks awesome. I have been trying to do similar screens to our fence (just waiting for isolation in VIC to finish)

 

I love those marbau screens but can't find them online anywhere. Any chance you could point me in the right direction.

 

Thanks

Simone.

Let me mention @lcooksey88 so they are alerted to your kind feedback and hopefully they can assist you in locating the screens.

 

I have managed to find the Lattice Makers 1800 x 900mm Herringbone Hardwood Screen Panel which you might be interested in taking a look at.

 

We look forward to hearing more about your project and would encourage you to let us know if you need any assistance or would like to share it with the community. I trust you'll find loads of inspiration for your project as our creative members are contributing their ideas here all the time.

Re: Fire pit area

Hi @Simmoann 

 

the herringbone panels are merbau but unfortunately a promotional line so not listed on the website - the item @MitchellMc has suggested is very similar just different timber. 
the bench seat is is a live line https://www.bunnings.com.au/specrite-1800-x-902mm-merbau-slat-screen-panel_p8500281

 

hope that helps you out!
