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
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. Test the burner.
Pour the glass and your 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!

The fireplace below was a Self Installation by Julie and Ty Hergenrother. This is a typical Direct Vent conversion that we help hundreds if not thousands of customers convert from those nasty logs. The glass that was installed was a base of Starfire Base Glass and topped with Bronze Base Glass and Gold Base Glass. These all start out nasty and we do what we can to change that, one fireplace at a time.
We even made the bottom face shield to make it look more uniform. This can also be done in any metal or design.
The next fireplace is from Ash Sarna, one great room and beautiful view!

The Fireplace below from Larry and Bonnie Bidwell was a typical wood burning fireplace. YUK!. Larry and bonnie are Geologists/ rock hounds with an extensive collection! Here are the fireplace pictures with the FireGlass/ fire glass installed. Pretty, don't you think so? Pretty Ugly! Can you honestly tell me you still like wood????
They still have yet to clean the bricks above the fireplace, but this is the result of burning wood!
