If there are building codes in your area, they will probably require the
pit to open and be sloped to grade, so that it could not fill with a
flammable material (gasoline), and so that someone working in the pit
would not be trapped in a situation where they need to climb to get out.
These regulations eliminate the (legal) possibility of a pit in most
homes.  Not such a bad regulation, really.
