Corey B. wanted an electronic ignition for his fireplace, and though one could think that an IPI for a fireplace could go in a fireplace...I would seriously advice not to do it!!!
Suffice it to say it melted.
The pictures below demonstrate what had been initially done, that is, the electronic ignition system wrongly placed within the fireplace.
We worked with Corey on how to best conceal the IPI. And in the end it was ingeniously installed within the left wall of his fireplace. Safely and discreetly placing it somewhere that it could work properly and not be intrusive and most importantly NOT MELT!!!
Cory decided that he wanted a lot of color in his new fireplace, he used the following FireGlass and fire crystal toppers:
The fireplace below is a propane fireplace with a propane burner and remote control. We used a Clear Base Glass with Starfire Base Glass on top. Then we added:
Medium Amber Topping,
Yellow Amber Topper,
Steel Blue Topper,
Dark Red Orange Topper over the base glass. The controls were covered after the install was finished. If you look closely you can see the pilot light assembly.
The fire pit below belongs to Mike DeVito in Northern California. When I saw his idea I was excited to help him create something new and wonderful. He took a very old mining cart in his front yard and we helped him convert it to a propane burning fire pit! Turned out pretty cool! Next he is getting a fire pit cover made to cover it from debris and who else knows what.
We use a FPPK (fire pit propane kit) with valves, thermocouple, pilot light and air mixer. The glass that was use is:
I think this is one really nice idea!
It is all supplied by this 20 lb propane tank
Here is the mining cart with the base plate installed with the burners
Here you see the controls, air mixer and thermocouple and pilot light lines under the base plate
You can use a larger (3/4", 1" lava) as a base under our 1/4" crushed lava
as this will save you a few dollars.
Now we pour on the crushed lava
to keep the glass from sinking into the larger lava.
Splash a few colors
Have your spouse light it in case something should go wrong! (Just Kidding)
Again here are the first pictures we saw of the mining cart. Great Idea!
Mike, you did a great job!
