Starfire Base Glass Continued-

                       
The fireplace below was installed by George Foote who also built his own pan, great job! We supplied the burners and glass and George supplied the talent and labor. Great job George! The colors used were:
Starfire base glass,
Azurlite,
Azurlite Reflective,
Gray base glass,
and our Ice Ice Ice and you be the judge!
Before the pan and glass.

You have to try to understand, we see this transformation everyday and we still don't understand the lure to fake logs, do you? Take a closer look at your fireplace, is there anything nice about it in the daylight?

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 Base Glass and Bronze Reflective Base Glass Topped with a bit of Starfire Base Glass. Ice Ice Ice Topper and about 2 pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper for a splash of color.
Typical nasty fireplace before Moderustic!

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.

 candice 1

Below is Rocky, just supervising

candice 2

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

Below we wrapped the opening with durock, concrete board.

candice 6

Add a bit of drywall.

candice 7

This was wired for a surround sound and electrical in the left cabinets.

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 fire table below was built for Dr. Ramsey Burton in Kentucky. We are going to show you from beginning in the shop to the finished product that Ramsey envisioned for his patio. Ramsey did a wonderful job in planing, building and execution of this project. The glass he used was aStarfire base with Ice Ice Ice on top. Here we go:

This was the lay out for the table to come!

Great job Ramsey!
The fire pit below had the wrong type of burner let alone the location of the burner.
The burner must be with in 2" of the ultimate top of the surface of the fire pit. Filling the pit with gas and then trying to light it? Nothing good can become of this. We installed a #304 stainless steel "H" burner, covered it with crushed lava (1/4" / 3/8") over the larger lava rock. This is what keeps it from trickling to the bottom. Them we topped it withStarfire base glass. Then Eric is trying to decide which colors/ topper he should add if any at all.

Las Vegas Yard Crashers!

This will air in April of 2010!

Here is a preview

Ahned Hassan

This is what was done on the first day. I showed up on the beginning of the second and the final day. It's amazing what can take place in just 12 hours!

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 1

Above the pavers were installed the day before.

Below is the patio with the outdoor kitchen set aside for now.

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 2

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 3

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 4

Above is where the outdoor kitchen will reside later.

Even the palm trees were brought in! There was nothing on the site when it started the day before.

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 5

Below Ahmed was leveling the ground around the fire pit area. Ahmed worked all day, much harder than anyone else! I was very impressed how hard he actually works to get the show done.

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 6

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 7

Below is where the propane fire pit will sit. The controller will be mounted to the side of the concrete base after the paper tubes are cut away.

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 8

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 9

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 10

Above and below you can see the inside of the planter is coated to prevent water from leaching out.

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 11

Above you can see on the ground that we brought the fire bowl in. Just so you know it was about 300 lbs!

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 12

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 13

Above and below you can see outdoor kitchen. The trough coming out is actually water fall spilling into a dry creek bed below. The water feature was covered with a glass top making it a dining area as well. On the inner wedges they wrapped rope lights to accent the water and rocks under the glass top.

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 14

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 15

Above and below you can see the sand was installed as a base for the artificial grass to come.

We are to feature several more episodes with Yard Crashers and we will be showing several more of our new product lines on their shows.  We still have several shows we need to post pictures of what we did. Please come back from time to time to see our latest updates.

I thank Ahmed and the producers of the Yard Crashers for giving us the opportunity to work with them.

Thanks to Tiffany, Krystal and Holly at the Idea Factory!

The fireplace below belongs to Todd. As you are going to see one great before and after transformation.

He used an 1/8" Clear base with Starfire on top. Then he added Red R Topper, Black Luster Topper and a few Clear Diamonds.

The same product can be displayed thousands of ways. What do you want to see? Our Diamonds are made with a convex base so when you look at the Diamonds in the fire they seem to be melting on the inside, like looking into a spoon. We cause it to reflect backwards. Visit out "Diamonds Page" to see many more colors!

 

 


The fire pit below is going to be installed in Sacramento on 11 14 09 for the Yard Crashers/ DIY/ HGTV show. After it is and has been installed we will post pictures on the Yard Crashers page. In the mean time here is the how to and why. We can build any size, shape, design feature you desire. We build to your imagination.

Below is the catch basin to hold the water for the feature

 

DIY PAN 1

Above you see the auto fill?

Below the water pump is now install below.

and now the fire.

DIY PAN 10

We placed a card board template to replicate the table top to conceal the lights as well.

DIY PAN 11

Now we add color to the water!

DIY PAN 12

DIY PAN 13

Here is the feature exposed with the blue water. You can change the water to any color you like.

DIY PAN 14

DIY PAN 15

This feature is only 6 1/2" tall. You can mount this under the table top and keep it only an inch or so above the surface of the table top.

DIY PAN 16

So let's change it to red water and add Starfire Base Glass.

DIY PAN 17

DIY PAN 18

"CLICK HERE to see the "Yard Crashers" Sacramento show!" See this feature finished here!

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.

Now for the fireplace pictures!

Christy's Fireplace 1

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

Christy's Fireplace 2

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

Christy's Fireplace 3

Christy's Fireplace 4

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

Christy's Fireplace 5

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.

Christy's Fireplace 9

Christy's Fireplace 10

Below we now added the Durock at the fireplace opening. This is key to the whole project. Math is very important when doing these layouts!

Christy's Fireplace 11

Christy's Fireplace 12

Christy's Fireplace 13

Christy's Fireplace 14

Christy's Fireplace 15

Below you can see the slate is being added.

Christy's Fireplace 16

Christy's Fireplace 17

Christy's Fireplace 18

Christy's Fireplace 19

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 pouringStarfire 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

Christy's Fireplace 27

Christy's Fireplace 28

Christy's Fireplace 29

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.

Luerman 1

The fireplace that was replaced was very nice but just met the needs of Dave.

The fireplace below is from Steve Calderon and he used a Starfire base glass with Gold and Bronze Rust Copper on top.

This is from beginning to end.

Calderon 1

Above is the before believe it or not. As you can see Steve did a terrific job. This was a wood burning fireplace before. he installed a gas line and control valve on the right side.

The fireplace below had a few issues, but easily repaired. Be sure to not let this happen to you! If anyone tries this type of installation, stop them and throw them out!  This fireplace installation was in Palm Springs California. It was done with the 2" method which is fine except for the burner the fireplace shop installed. We will explain as we move forward and show you the finished fireplace.

Below is what we saw when we arrived.

Palm Springs 4

Then we tested the burner we were to replace, oh my!

Palm Springs 5

We uncovered to see what was installed and found a single pipe burner. Great Flame! Another issue was the paint job was hideous which was later repainted. Don't let these ignorant installer tell you their stories. They told the customer the paint would dry to match.

Palm Springs 1

We do approve of a sand filler indoors under lighter colored glass, but the burner must be on top!

Palm Springs 2

Palm Springs 3

Now we installed a double burner and just watch!

Palm Springs 6

Below is what they pawned off on the customer, DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

Palm Springs 7

Palm Springs 8

Much better. Then we took several pictures of the fireplace just because! We did top it off with about 15 lbs of Starfire to help hide the sand that was exposed and it worked out just fine.

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.

Jim Malless 1

Jim Malless 2

Jim Malless 3

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.

Jim Malless 4

The next fireplace were installed in Malibu California. The master bedroom was on the third floor. We did a little paparazzi photo shoot while we were there. The glass we installed was 1/4" Starfire base glass.

The fireplace pictures 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 the burner to the top of the sand so it can operate properly. With crushed lava you can keep the burner below the surface. Keep you're sand/ lava at least 3" to 4" away from the front!

Palm  Springs Install 7

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

Palm  Springs Install 8

Looks awesome!

The 2 fireplaces below are
 Claremont California.
We installed Starfire base glass in each of them and then the customer ordered Ice Ice Ice and diamonds to accent each fireplace.  Very nice stone work!
Claremont 1
This is the living room fireplace and we poured about 3" of sand under the Starfire base glass. We used a 44" "H" burner under the Starfire.

The fire pit below was purchased locally and then we converted it to burn propane without soot! The colors used were:
Starfire Base Glass,
and topped with 1 lb of Copper Ruby Red Topper. I guess he wanted a lot of color.

Here is what is looked like when he started. These manufactures have no imagination!

The fireplace pictures below is typical wood burning fireplace which we see every day. Once uncovered it looks like an incinerator. They are pretty nasty looking with out the fire burning. We like to show the before and after so you know what you really have.

Steve 1

Nice! Very Nice!

Steve 2

We had Starfire base glass installed with Ice Ice Ice on top.

The fire pit below has a Clear Base Glass with  Starfire Base Glass and 1/2" Starfire Base Glass, Yellow Amber Topper. Cobalt Blue Topper and Emerald Green Topper and a little bit of ICE ICE ICE Topper. The earth as the back yard and a lot of friends, wow!





 

Just when I thought they couldn't do something different, they did! I agree with the sand as a base under the Starfire base glass. I will explain as we go forward:Paul 1

I finally understood the weird brackets, he was calculating the height of his burner for sand filler underneath.

Paul 5

Above and below I understand testing the burner.

Paul 6

Paul 7

OK, I give, he taped the holes to prevent sand from getting in the burner. That doesn't really matter as too much sand really can't get inside and if it does, no big deal.

Paul 2

Paul 3

Paul 4

What I don't understand is the burner left on top of the glass. Didn't I show enough pictures for you to get the hint? No really? I guess he missed those few hundred pages of pictures.

If this is the look he was after, then he got it! Different strokes for different folks.

Clear base with Starfire base mixed together over

Medium Amber Topping

Bronze Rust Copper base glass

Black Luster Topper

Yellow Amber Topper and

Turquoise Blue Topper

You be the judge, we think it looks great!

Now for the fireplace pictures!

Thom Toben 6

Below the burner is installed with the flex line under the burner

Simply perfect
Contemporary in the country is a way to enjoy the best of both worlds

The family’s theater room takes on a contemporary flare with a stainless steel-tiled fireplace. Shards of glass replace artificial embers in the gas fireplace, creating a glow as the flames flicker. A large screen on a remote control is located above the fireplace, perfect for the family to watch a movie together.

The fire pit pictures below were taken by and for the Sweat Equity weekly HGTV Do It Yourself TV Show. The FireGlass that was installed was:

Starfire base,

Blue Diamonds,

Ford Blue base glass,

with an 18" stainless steel fire pit ring burner with out the center to accommodate the water feature. All of the fire glass was placed around the pile of fire rocks in the center. The top of the table is removable if you ever needed to service the water pump or any other reason. Always build and design it with replacement or repair in mind.

Now for the fire pit pictures:

Aquatic Glassel was used in this and every application.

There was an aluminum sub frame built with durock attached. Then the stone was applied to the surface. All of the components are under the removable top.

The picture of the fire pit below was taken in Newport Beach California. The glass that was installed was Starfire base glass. One very nice backyard and fire pit!

The next several fireplace pictures are from Andy Peeke from New Jersey.  Andy did the self installation with his wife. Almost a complete fireplace make over once you see. They use a Starfire base, Amber Topper and Black Topper.

The house is very nice, the fireplace right now is "YUK"!

Andy Peeke 9

YUK again!

We used a double "H" to give a wider flame pattern as you will see.

 

Andy Peeke 2

We also used a sand base under the Starfire base glass and just up to the burners, not covering them.

Just so you know, this is a two sided fireplace.

Andy Peeke 3

Now 2" of Starfire base glass.

and you're done!

This next fireplace was done with lack of knowledge! First they installed a 18" single burner and some real interesting choices of glass. What they did do correct is have a 3" sand bed under their yuk glass. The first issue we repaired was the stub out on the left side of the fireplace floor. All we did was install a 90 degree elbow and connect a 1/2" flex line to the new double 24" burner. They had left the flex pointing in the air and then reduced it to a 3/8" line and to top that off added they very sad single 18" burner. We repainted their futile attempt (of painting) with dark metallic brown, added 10 lbs of sand and poured 75 lbs of Starfire base glass over the new burner and sand filler. We will explain as we move forward:

Below you can see the black marks under the paint.

PS Convert 3

Below you can see the flex line that was installed was left above the surface. Now if we tried that I think our customers would take us out and string us up, what do you think? To top it off this customer was an attorney! Completely happy with what we did.

PS Convert 4

Here is the new paint on the back walls.

PS Convert 5

Now we added the Starfire base glass. One thing we have been doing a little bit different is to bring the glass out from the front of the fireplace. We let the glass come out of the fireplace from 3 to 6 inches to make it look even more grand. What do you think?

PS Convert 8

Here is a the almost finished product of what we do! We left several colors with the customer to add. We will post pictures when they arrive.

Below are teh finished pictures of what else was added:

Yellow Amber,

Ice Ice Ice,

Clear Diamonds,

Fuchsia Topper,

Purple Topper,

Red R Topper,

Roma Red Topper

I think it turned out very colorful! Check it out!

The fireplace pictures below will show how simple and easy it actually is to install.

Here are a few comments from J.D.

 Harriman John. Harriman@dlapiper.com

Subject:  More proof of how easy it is to do with Moderustic providing the materials!


 We are so happy with our fireglass fireplaces (we have 3!).  It has literally changed our lives in that we can use our fireplaces anytime we want with no worry about
cleaning ashes later on.  Even better, the look is so superior to fake logs.  All of our friends have been wowed by the look.  We always send them your way.
 
Best regards,
 
J. D. Harriman

Here we go:

001

Above you can see how nice it WAS! YUK!

Below they painted, we always recommend painting the lines first and then painting each brick separately. Using this technique you can eliminate spots.

002

Install the burner. We usually recommend curling the flex line from underneath, but this works as well if your flex line is long enough. The reason for the flex line: it allows you to move the burner forward to prevent the flames from hitting the back wall.

003

Below the lava has been poured and test the flame pattern.

004

Pour the glass from the front going to the back. You can use a cup or pour from the bucket.

005

Turn it on and you're done!

006

The glass that was used is:

Starfire base,

1 lb of Gold,

Amber Diamonds,

Ice Ice Ice for one simple but nice fireplace!

007


The next fireplace was installed by Kirk Lewis. He wanted a splash of matching colors and he got it!

He installed:
Bronze base glass,

Bronze Rust Copper,

1/4" Black base glass,

California Gold,

 Platinum,

The fireplace below has a 3" layer of crushed lava, 1/4" Clear Base Glass, 1/2" Starfire Base Glass, 3/4" Starfire Base Glass 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.

Now you can see the fireplace valve to the right.

n 21n 22

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!
