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:
and our Ice Ice Ice Topper and you be the judge!
Before the pan and 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 Base Glass 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.

Below we wrapped the opening with durock, concrete board.

candice 6

Add a bit of drywall.

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

The TV that was used was a DLP (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 Base Glass, Gold Base Glass and  Ice Ice Ice Topper.

The fireplace below is in Santa Monica California. The fireplace is a Malm Fireplace which can be found at:
Malm Fireplaces Ask for Keith

 
We used an 18" double stainless steel burner and a bed of Starfire Base Glass topped with a few pounds of our Ice Ice Ice Topper.
This is a very simple self installation as you will see.

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.

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 16

Above is our fire bowl on propane. We used Starfire Base Glass with Ice Ice Ice Topper and Diamonds on top. We brought out several colors of diamonds for the customer to pick and choose but she liked them all so much, she installed every last one!

Las Vegas Yard Crashers 22

Below you can see after everything was cleaned up how spectacular it turned out!

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 Glass with Starfire Base Glass 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!

 

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  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.

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!

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 Topper 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 Base Glass and Bronze Rust Copper Base Glass 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 Base Glass 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.

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.

We built a custom size steel pan to go into the fireplace with Starfire Base Glass installed

There is 4" of Black frame all around, 4" of black glass on the sides and 4" of black glass on the top.
