The fire pit below was built by Mark Showalter in Washington state.
He used: Gray Base Glass and Gray Reflective Base Glass, Gray Pyrite Base Glass, Copper Ruby Red Topper, and Black Base Glass mixed in. This is the stone pot with the bottom up.
They drilled for the trimming valve to be installed.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and here you have it.
Here is what is looked like when he started. These manufactures have no imagination!
This only cost about $100.00, complete!
The next fireplace was installed by Ken Kenoyer. He constructed his own pan for his Direct Vent Fireplace conversion
with our supervision. We will go through the steps to complete his installation. The glass that was used was Starfire Base Glass
and topped with Red Topping
and Red Topper
. We will explain as we move forward.
Above is your fireplace now (if you like logs).
Below is your burner system that came with your wonderful Direct Vent Fireplace and logs.
Below is a pictures of your pilot light system
Below we have removed the "stuff" and exposed the pilot and gas connection.
Royce built a pan to fit the fireplace.
Below he cut the pan out to accept the pilot light.
Connected the gas line.
Tested the burner.
Pour the glass and you are done! If anyone has told you that you can't convert a direct vent fireplace then these pictures and project don't exist! Just because they don't know what or how to do it, doesn't mean it can't be done.
The glass face is back on and it looks much better. A very nice and simple Self Installation!
