Starfire Base Glass-

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 top with a double 24" burner installed. We are next installing one of our surrounds.

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 was installed in Palm Springs, California. The base glass is Starfire Base Glass and then we topped it with 1 lb of Pirates Topper.

This is a typical fireplace but this one has lava rock stacked up inside, yuck!

Below you can see the flame hitting the back wall creating a soot mark, not very nice looking. The customer didn't want the fireplace painted, why?
ps pirates 3
There's that soot mark! If you do paint make sure the work is not spotty! That looks nasty as well.
ps pirates 4
Above you see the typical hard piped burner installed which is fine for logs or lava. But this does not really work well for glass.
Below you see the double burner installed with an 18" flex line.

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.

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

A little bit of granite on the floor

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.

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.

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!

We use a piece of stainless steel in the front to contain the glass to cover the burners and keep the glass level.





The first project we are working on is the Maryland Hotel (Ivy Hotel now) Roof Top Fire Pit in downtown San Diego, California on the 7th floor roof top!
It measures 60" across, 30" tall and 144" long!
The fire table/ fire pit will and a 5' x 12' surface top in smooth concrete with a 16" x 120" stainless steel fire tray of to one side. We will post pictures as the project grows on.
Te fire pit is constructed with a new flexible track and about 3,000 screws, 240' of galvanized channel, 450 welds, 600 lbs of GFRC/ Wonder Board and coated in smooth texture concrete.

The Hotel plumber was not very careful as he mixed the lava with the glass and now it looks like salt and pepper.

This is how easy it is to install. This is all glass and if you need to build it up a little or a lot then use a filler to save money

 

The fireplace below has a Starfire base with Red and Red Orange Toppings, Scarlett Toppers, Copper Ruby Red Toppers. As you can see the fireplace was 5" deep and 54" wide and yes we did fill it with crushed lava rock.

The fireplace below was on the outside wall of the fireplace above. We also had a Starfire base with Red and Red Orange Toppings, Scarlett Toppers, Copper Ruby Red Toppers. This fireplace was filled 4" to save on the cost of the base glass. If anyone ever tries to tell you different, well tell them *#@!+$% their wrong!

The 2 outdoor fireplaces below are in northern California at the Hyatt. They called us about soot on the glass. When we looked at the pictures our first thoughts were PROPANE! No these are natural gas. The fix was actually very simple. This was caused by a down draft from the chimney which we partially closed the flue which stopped the down draft and as you can see they are just fine now.

Ed we love our new fireplace!!
Wow, it is awesome and couldn't have been easier to set up. Made the
purchase late Friday and it took me approx 2 hrs Saturday (while watching
TV) to set up properly including paint and clean up.
I did run into a small problem with the material continuously falling out of
the fireplace . It seemed that I actually used too much material. I was able
to resolve the problem by utilizing the original glass door frame as a
decorative and very functional stop. It is held in place with clear silicon
and the material was allowed to contact and dry into the silicon. ( see pics
) In my case this worked out well as my accent color is gold and so is the
trim piece of the frame. I imagine this can be done on many fireplaces and
the trim can be painted is needed to match. Feel free to use our pictures or
the idea about the trim ( if it is original ) on your web site or sales
presentations.


Thank you again

Hi Ed,

I finally managed to finish the fireplace. We have decided to place a 2" piece of metal in front (which hasn't been done yet), though, to keep the glass off the ledge. We thought it would be deep enough, but that didn't quite work.

To enable me to keep the center area smooth, we had to place the burner on top of the wall pipe, which created a rather high burner placement. This ended up creating a bit of a problem because I had a steep slope to the hearth. This is why I need to add the metal strip in front--so the glass doesn't roll down and come out of the fireplace. We had decided to not have a glass door on it, although if we find something we really like, that could change.

 The pics might come in 2-3 e-mails, but I'll describe them here. The first few pics are duplicates of ones I already sent you.

1. Original fireplace, emptied out.

2-3. After painting with the dark blue from the chart you guys gave us. The wall was painted to match, although, I'm not sure I really like it. I'm trying to reserve judgement until I see it for awhile.

The damper handle is a brass duck head which wasn't even noticeable when it was all black.

4-5.New burner in place. This created more problems than expected due to the wall pipe being higher than most. We ended up using regular lava rock, since we couldn't find the smaller rocks. Then we added small pea gravel to fill in gaps around the lava rock. After the burner was finally level, we added the sand.

6. Testing the burner with sand added.

7. Clear glass base added.

8. Rest of colors were added--Starfire, Azurlite, Cranberry-Pink, with a little Steel Blue Topper and a few Ice Cubes.

9-10. All finished and burning.

We're still working on the right side of this wall which has cabinets holding the TV and storage. Once the entire wall is finished, I'll send you one final pic of the entire wall. Not sure how soon that will happen, so don't wait for it, if you want to post these pics on your website.

I want to thank you for all your help. Your store was great to visit, so we could pick our glass out in person. Your staff was very helpful and we had a great time making our final color choices. I'll will definitely recommend you to others.

The pictures below are of the fire pit on the roof top of the Marriott in downtown San Diego in the Gas Lamp District on the 24th floor, very cool view if you're ever there. The 2 half round 24" x 48" stainless steel rings were made custom for this fire pit. The glass that was used was a 50/50 mix of Starfire and Black. Very nice effect along with the view.

The fireplace below is the fireplace of "Bill" and he wasn't sure where the burners went. So he put them on top and as you can see he should of put them under the glass.

Bill ordered a rectangular pan and it would of looked better if we would of built a trapezoid shape pan to contour the fireplace. Bill did drop his burners under the glass. This was a propane ventless conversion. Looks much better than those log thingies! Hopefully Bill will send us pictures of it finished and burning, maybe. We used Starfire glass in the pan.

The fireplace below is in Palm Desert California and was a self install with a crushed lava base, Clear over the lava, Starfire on top of the Clear and topped with Amber diamond and a splash of our Gold . It looked great until they found the burner was too close to the back which burned the back wall. I don't know if this was repaired as we did send paint and instructions on how to prevent this in the future. The fireplace looked great except for the "skid mark" on the back wall.

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.

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.

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 was a wood burning fireplace and the plumber never installed a key valve in or near the fireplace. So we made a fireplace key box which was installed on the right side of the fireplace. This is the only alternative when the plumber can't or won't fix the issue. So remember if your plumber installs a valve inside of your fireplace, ask him "how do I turn it off?" That's when you will see him run down the drive way. The glass that was used in this fireplace was Starfire.

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.

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 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 for 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 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 a Starfire base with Ice Ice Ice on top. Here we go:

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 with Starfire 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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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 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

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.

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 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.

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

Palm  Springs Install 8

Palm Springs Install 9

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.

The fireplace 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!

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!





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:

PS Convert 1

PS Convert 2

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.

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?

The fire pit below was installed in Sydney, Australia by Ian Sutherland. He did a great job on his new patio and fire pit. We inspired him to build this really nice back yard project and we were glad to help. The glass that was used was Azurlite and Starfire base glass.

The next fireplace

 ventless conversion was from Eric at Neutral Interiors.

We built a pan to recess into the floor of the fireplace and to access the controls Eric cut a hole on the left side of the fireplace for easy access in the event it had to be reset or turned off.

We will explain as we move on:

The lower hole is the access hole.

The next fireplace has a Starfire base, Gold (15 lbs) 2 lbs of Ice ice Ice and 3 of our new 4" Black Porcelain coated Fire Balls! What went wrong was they left the screens on and the burner was not centered, very important!

The next fireplace is in Tennessee and was installed by Rocky. Interesting fact, his house sits on the state line. When you go out of the back door you are in Mississippi!. We built a control / key box (now located in the front of the fireplace) to turn his fireplace on which he never had. Rocky installed a Starfire base and topped it with 2 lbs of Mixed Toppers.

There is about 4" of sand underneath.

 

The next fireplace was installed by Tracey Watson. She used a Starfire base glass, added Gold base glass, and topped it with Ice Ice Ice,  4" Black Terrra Cotta Fire Balls. Now for the bad part: Always test your burner to insure your flames are in the center and I recommend removing the screens. When you remove the screens, you may want to paint the interior, just a thought!
