The fireplace below is in Palm Springs California. We installed Starfire Base Glass and painted the interior ivory white and installed brushed surround with clear glass edging.
Now it starts to come to life!
It just looked sooo good, we had to post all of the pictures!
Amazing flame work by night and below simple and nice to see by day.
This surround has 4" sides and 3" top and bottom. Every fireplace is a little bit different as we recommend a cardboard template so you can get a preview of what it will look like before hand.
The fireplace below has a Starfire Base Glass with Citrine Topper, Dark Red Orange Topper, and Orange Topper with a touch of our Ice Ice Ice Topper. This was a complete remodel in natural gas and a remote control was added with a pilot light
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 Base Glass and Copper Ruby Red Topper on top.
As you can see the fireplace was not much to look at until we added our touch.
You be the judge, We think it turned out wonderful!
Step 2, cover the old brick!
Finish the face and floor, very nice!
Install the propane pan burner
Fill in and all around the pan with crushed lava rock.
On the left side you can see the gas connection which will soon be covered as well. On the right side the control cover will be covered as well. This propane pan burner was fitted with a remote control, radio frequency.
Now that your finished your ready for FIRE! Have your spouse lite it in the event they didn't follow the instructions! (just kidding again)!
The fireplace below has a Bronze Base Glass with Starfire Base Glass on top. The customer installed a Maxitrol remote control on the right side
If they would of used more filler it could of covered the remote at least on the top portion.
Putting a ceramic pine cone in a glass fireplace defeats the purpose, you think? I would of used a a fire stone or even a fire ball.
The fireplace below is a direct vent fireplace in Arroyo Grande (Pismo Beach, California). We mounted the back and then attached the face. This surround was with out a perimeter of interior glass. We usually border a 2" band of glass all around the inside edge. We use aluminum for this project.
This is the standard black frame for the fireplace.
Below you can see the back of the surround attached to the fireplace.
Then we just slip the front cover over and done!
The fireplace below has a steel pan underneath to conceal the 12 volt remote control. We used a Clear Base Glass and topped it with a Starfire Base Glass and then added Amber Diamonds on the surface.
You can see the front plate that was painted to match which is removable if and when necessary to change the batteries. The legs were 4 1/2" and the pan was 2" tall. The removable front metal curtain was 6 1/2" tall.
The fireplace below belongs to Robert and Rena in Palm Desert California. They choose a warm brown high heat paint too match their furniture. Here is the just finished surround:
Originally we installed two metal shields to cover and hide the nasty looking side vents. On many fireplaces to keep it minimal we do just the side covers which actually looks fine and finished.
Here is the surround installed. Looks great!
We made 3" sides and top with a 6" bottom with 2" of frosted glass installed on the interior.
The surround below was installed in Riverside California By Ruben. Ruben made a template to fit his fireplace. A bit over the top but Ruben is good for that! By making a preview template you can get a preview of what it will actually look like before we manufacture it for your fireplace. We will explain as we move on:
The wood and card board template. The blue tape will be frosted glass.
On the back side you can see the cover fins Ruben wanted to have installed. This was to cover what he did not want to see in the fireplace after the surround was installed. In our designs we ask what do you want to see and what don't you want to see.
Above and below you can see the surround front finished.
Above and below you can see the back side with the fins attached for installation. We will post pictures as soon as Ruben sends them to us.
