As to height, setup a mock up and see what height is comfortable to you. You probably also need to consider aesthetics. If the base is very high it may look funny, plus the chimney etc will be that much higher...

thanks, yeah I don't want to ruin the overall look but I think I might just add another level of block to raise it up a little

A mock up is a great suggestion! I'm 6'2" and i wish i had gone one block higher! If you have the time and patience...build a mock up and find your own comfort level.

Your build is looking good. I look forward to seeing it finished.

I have to be honest, I am not too thrilled to see your bocce court. I have been kicking around the idea of putting in a bocce court, even have a great space to put it. But I had it in my head that it would be a simple thing to install. I mean seriously, you are just rolling heavy balls on dirt, right? Now that I see yours I realize it is going to be a much bigger project than I initially thought. I guess I will have to put it off another year, because as soon as the ground warms enough to dig, I am putting in my oven first. Not sure if I can handle two big projects at the same time.

It all looks great, you are doing a fantastic job.

yes, spring is right around the corner, unfortunately I have a few indoor projects to complete too

Jaronimo, don't be put off, I truly overbuilt my court, the great thing about building a court is it can be as simple as you want it.

You are probably right. I am sure I will get to the bocce court eventually.

"spring" started a little late for me, yesterday I finally got the slab poured with some help from my brother in law. We used 1 yard of concrete which I had delivered vs bagging it. I went with a 5000 psi commercial mix. Could not have asked for a better day for pouring concrete, 70 degrees and overcast
