The fireplace below is a direct vent installation with Gray, Gray Reflective and Clear Pyrite installed

Has anyone ever said "Nice Logs"? I don't think so. We are going to show you how to transform your direct vent fireplace into a real attractive fireplace.

The key is not to change the amount of gas going into the fireplace, so don't change the regulator.

The thermo coupler (heat detector) will be raised to the surface to insure it will still work.

After a little black granite and some Clear Ice, we have a very nice fireplace!

The pictures below are of a self install fire pit with crushed lava rock and a Clear base

1/2" to 3/4" lava rock is use just to the bottom of the ring.

fp 1

If you want a higher center then pour a little more filler on top of the ring.

fp 2

Now we will pour the crushed lava rock (1/4" to 3/8") over the filler as this will stop the glass from falling through the lava rock.

fp 3

fp 4

Finish shaping and pour the glass

fp 5

This is a 36" fire pit which requires 56 lbs for a 1" cover and 80 lbs for a 1 1/2" cover.

We used the 1" method, 56 lbs which as you can see works just fine and no you can't see though the glass. Any one telling you need more is trying to fill their pockets with your money!

fp 6

The second step will be to add color and toppers which we should post in a few days and night time pictures with the fire on

The fireplace below has Starfire and Ice. This is a complete makeover and turned out very nice.

The fireplace below is in Georgia and we will explain as we move down

The first 2 pictures are of how it used to look, nice logs! I don't think so!

The owners of this fireplace called and told us they couldn't use the fireplace because of the soot (carbon-monoxide) (poison) So we redesigned the fireplace with an air vented pan and our glass (Starfire and Ice) and now a clean burn! The flames are all above the glass and therefore no more carbon-monoxide. Fireplace Shops and dealers won't tell you about this unless you ask, how would you know to ask?

Starfire and Ice on the left

Pan and ring burner on the right.

Really nice fireplace in the middle of the great room surrounded by 3 glass walls.

The fireplace below has Clear, Gray, Black, Clear Pyrite and Topped with 1/2" Starfire.

 

The fireplace below is in Newport Beach California and Laura did a great self install!

Now for the after pictures! This was a custom propane burner which was under all of the glass!

This is what Patti had to say:
Hi Ed,
 
Well, it's been about two weeks since I installed the new fireplace, and it is the talk of this sleepy little town. Because of the "Ice" on the top, it has been nicknamed the "Fire and Ice" fireplace. I just placed an order for a pound each of 1/4" Gold, Yellow Amber Topper and Clear Ice. I think it needs a smidgen more color, and since the Ice is the big feature, I decided to add a little more. I have to say, I didn't think I would like the ice, but it looks amazing!
 
Thank you Ed and Jimmy for all of your help and hand holding over the past few months. I will take more pictures when I add the new products.
 
Thanks again,
 
Patti

The fireplace below has a 3" layer of crushed lava, 1/4" Clear base, 1/2" Starfire, 3/4" Starfire for the chunky look and a flush surround to finish it off. A very impressive and modern house and fireplace. From beginning to end, here we go.

n 1n 2

We also floated the walls to level the fireplace and get it ready for the surround.

A little bit of granite on the floor

n 3n 4

If you notice to the right there is no valve to turn it on? The plumber from a few years ago has it to the right about 5 feet, DUMMY! Lets fill the fireplace with gas before we get there and see what happens! Don't hire that plumber.

n 1n 2

We are now going to do an extended 3/4" glass radius counter in the kitchen in front of the stove for a glass counter top.

n 3n 4

n 5n 6

We also bent all of the kitchen handles to contour the cabinets.

We flush fit a surround to the wall for a final finish. This was a satin black aluminum frame with 2" of glass installed

n 23n 24

We are capable of any size project from design to a full installation (depending on our current work load). There is nothing we can't do as we are the the first and foremost authority in our field. We never say NO! We do only what the other companies can only dream about!

The fireplace below is a propane burner, self installation with the 2" method, Starfire and Gold on top

So there it is. A clean burning propane burner, 2" method, no soot, no smells, no carbon monoxide and it puts out a tremendous amount of heat. We sell the 2" method because it works and if anyone tries to tell you different, they need your money more than you do. We are the only company building propane burners for glass that don't soot or smell!

This is a self install with a Clear base, Lagoon Topper, Pale Emerald Green Topper and Ice

There was about 2" of crushed lava under the Starfire

The fireplace below is in Beverly Hills California.
We use a Black base glass with Clear Ice Ice Ice on top. The customer wanted to use their original burner to keep the flames localized in the center area. This fireplace goes from "Log Ugly" to very nice and contemporary in about an hour. If you really take a look at your fireplace place in the beginning it almost looks like an incinerator for long ago.

The fireplace below in in Lakeland, Florida and was installed by John Addison for his customer. The fireplace has one of our propane pan burners with a remote control. We built a brushed aluminum surround with out the inner glass per the customer request. The glass that was used was a Gray base glass with Black and Copper Ruby Red on top.

As you can see the fireplace was not much to look at until we added our touch.

The fireplace below is a before and after and a "how to" make it low and lean. A more contemporary look. This is a self install by Rich Kamins and one very nice job!. He used a Bronze and Bronze Reflective base glass. Topper with a bit of Starfire. Ice Ice Ice and about 2 pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper for a splash of color.

Typical nasty fireplace before Moderustic!

The fireplace below has a mixed base of:
14 lbs Starfire, 14 lbs Amber and 1/4" Blue Green,
Topped with 2 lbs of Blue Green Reflective and 1 lb of Jade Green Topper.
here are the pictures from start to finish, a couple of the pictures were a little fuzzy from the customer. Oh well.

Now typically is your fireplace looks like yuck, put candles in it and everyone will tell you how nice it looks! NOT! So don't do it! If it's dirty or looks like a skid mark, clean it and or paint it but don't put candles in it.
robert 1
A typical fireplace where Fake Logs used to live. Now they are residing in the Fake Forest after leaving nice black skid marks on the walls of your fireplace, nice! Actually the soot you see in your fireplace is carbon monoxide but the fireplace manufactures which manufacture the Fake Logs just don't seem to tell you this little fact! It's poison and it's the furthest thing from being green that you could ever get. If you really still like Fake Logs then just sit in your garage with your car running and entertain your friends and family there. It's just a healthy.
robert 2
robert 4
The customer here could of painted his flex line to help hide it a little better. Again what was the plumber thinking, hanging logs? Maybe that's why we plumbed the line so high in the air?

Anyway after all of that it did turn out nice.

The fireplace below is in Pasadena California. this is a before and after with a 2" base of crushed lava as a filler with Starfire on tot with a double 24" burner installed. We are next installing one of our surrounds.
heidi 2
Looks nice? Huh? NOT! Again, has anyone ever told you nice logs? I don't think so.
I would really not like being a log manufacture as they really produce some ugly products, in my opinion. But you decide for yourself.
heidi 3
heidi 4
Below we have installed the burner on top of the lava rock filler.
heidi 6
Now test the burner to insure the flames don't hit the back wall as this will scorch the walls.

Now this is nice! Now we will install a surround. Most everyone tells us "Nice Glass"!

The Fireplace below belongs to Candice, Jonathan and Rocky (a cute little Yorkie). We converted a plain fireplace to a much more usable and modern fireplace TV entertainment area. Watch the transformation from beginning to end. We Topped it with Starfire to finish it off.

Below is Rocky, just supervising

We started the metal framing in 16 Gauge steel studs. No wood was used and you should never use wood near a fire.

The TV that was used was a DPL (16" deep) and this is how you install a TV that is not a flat screen above your fireplace. In the left cabinets the components were installed and concealed by black glass doors.  On the top we installed a set of 6" lights on dimmers to give additional room/ mood lighting.

The fireplace below was installed with a dual battery operated 100,000 BTU propane electronic ignition system. Each capable of 100,000 BTU's of fire. The first pictures show what we had to work with and how it progressed.
The glass that was used was Starfire, Gold and Ice Ice Ice.

The fireplace below is from Cory here locally in

Rancho Cucamonga California. This transformation was a complete surface make over along with out Sterling Silver interior. The glass that was used was Bronze base glass. This is truly a DIY project and we like to help you create your ideas to reality.

Here we begin with the old interior brick panels removed.

The fireplace below is a self install in Palm Springs at Tim Rockwood's. About 2" of crushed lava was used and a 2" layer of Solex base glass was installed over a double 18" burner. Watch how simple this really is. From ugly to one really nice fireplace.

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 1

Above and below is what it looked like when the project was started.

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 2

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 3

Below you can see the grate (noting great here) and the remote control. Too much stuff in the fireplace if you ask me.

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 5

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 6

Above, if you use a remote control, let's find a better way of hiding it? You think?

Below all of the STUFF is removed, much better!

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 8

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 9

Above and below it is now painted and the double 18" burner is installed.

Very clean look! Uncluttered!

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 10

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 11

Above the lava was poured up to the gas stub on the left side just enough to cover the burner. Be sure to leave 3 to 4" in the front for the glass. You don't want the lava all the way up front.

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 12

Now pour the glass and you have a heat producing fireplace as you were supposed to have in the beginning and it looks pretty good too!

Do it yourself fireplace remodel made easy, or at least it seems that way.

First, the tile that was installed is not rated for fire. This tile would of popped off as soon as the fire was turned on. So do a little research before you begin. We can help in many ways, just call and ask.

It may have of seemed to be a good idea at the time, but it wasn't!

When redesigning a fireplace we suggest card board mache'. A card board mock up so you can see a basic preview of your project.

Christy's Fireplace 4

Below you can see the bottom, top and mantle in card board.

Christy's Fireplace 6

Now the rip and tear process begins!

Christy's Fireplace 7

Below we installed the extra electrical for the components and the TV. The components will be installed on the right side out of view with a black glass door. This will be installed later.

Christy's Fireplace 8

Below the framing begins.

Above and below the fireplace is 90% finished. The mantle needs to be installed and the door on the right to conceal the components needs to be installed as well. The inside of the fireplace will have 3 pieces of black galaxy granite installed. We will post these pictures of the fireplace when it is completely finished as well.

Christy's Fireplace 20

Now for the glass installation. We started with a satin black paint on the back walls, until we install the granite.  Then we bulked up the base with 2" of white sand as this will save you a bunch of money! We used sand because we were pouring Starfire base glass in the fireplace. If we were to use a darker color of glass we would of used our crushed lava rock as a filler. When using sand, always make sure the burner is on top of the sand.

Christy's Fireplace 21

Test the burner/ location making sure the flames don't hit the walls.

Christy's Fireplace 22

Christy's Fireplace 23

Then pour the glass!

Christy's Fireplace 24

Christy's Fireplace 25

We added a few pink diamonds and then later added Ice Ice Ice and Clear Diamonds. These products because of the way they are made appear to be melting on the inside.

Christy's Fireplace 26

The sealer that was used was a stone enhancer, not just a regular cheap sealer. When using rock you always want to see the beauty of the stone you are using.

Christy's Fireplace 30

Christy's Fireplace 31

Christy's Fireplace 32

As you can see the mantle is still missing. We have a few more details to still do and as soon as we have time to post the pictures, they will be here.

We encourage imagination to all of our customers and we support you and your projects. Regardless how simple or how creative. This is one of the elements that spawned our success and continues to do so.

 

Kentucky Fireplace Remodel

The next fireplace was built by Dave Luerman in Kentucky and you will now see his before and after also using a base of Starfire base glass.

Below you can see where it all began. Dave is one very creative customer.

The fireplace below is in Palm Springs California. We used Starfire base glass over a 2"
 bed of sand. We will narrate as we go:

Here is the fireplace with the screen removed

Palm  Springs Install 1

Palm  Springs Install 2

Now we remove the doors, very simple. One screw on each side at the top generally removes the doors.

Palm  Springs Install 3

Below, remove the end of the flex line and screw it on to the stub out coming out of the wall.

Palm  Springs Install 4

Below, now attach the flex line from the burner to the stub out. Keeping the flex line curled under the burner.

Palm Springs Install 5

Below, pour in as much sand (on lighter colors) as you would like to raise the glass bed.

Palm  Springs Install 6

Look how easy! Even my installers can do it! Bring th burner to the top of the sand so it can operate properly. With crushed lava you can keep the burner below the surface. Keep your sand/ lava at least 3" to 4" away from the front!

Palm  Springs Install 7

Pour the glass and your done! Our typical install where we don't have to paint is about 12 minutes!

Palm  Springs Install 8

Palm Springs Install 9

Palm Springs Install 10

Looks awesome!
