Before and After Pictures

We've posted several pictures sent to us from our customers who've converted their exsisting (natual gas or propane) fireplaces into a beautiful fireglass fireplaces.

Some pictures show some real dramatic conversions; these come from our customers who have decided to rebuilt their fireplaces.  We didn't rebuild them, we just provided the burners and fireglass which are installed at the end.

 

The fireplace below is in Newport Beach California and Laura did a great job installing it!

2" of lava and a Bronze base with Bronze Reflective and 2 lbs of Gold. One can of paint and your done.

Sample 2 - A Modern Fireplace With Fireglass

Sample 3 - A Restaurant's Ugly Fire-log Converts  to a Beautiful Fireglass Fireplace

This fireplace is in Shawano, Wisconsin at the Cotton Patch Restaurant. E mail Patti and tell here you saw her fireplace.

patti 3

Now for the after pictures! This was a custom propane burner which was under all of the glass!
This is what Patti had to say:

Hi Ed,
 
Well, it's been about two weeks since I installed the new fireplace, and it is the talk of this sleepy little town. Because of the "ice" on the top, it has been nicknamed the "Fire and Ice" fireplace. I just placed an order for a pound each of 1/4" Gold, Yellow Amber Topper and Clear Ice. I think it needs a smidgen more color, and since the ice is the big feature, I decided to add a little more. I have to say, I didn't think I would like the Ice, but it looks amazing!
 
Thank you Ed and Jimmy for all of your help and hand holding over the past few months. I will take more pictures when I add the new products.
 
Thanks again,
 
Patti

Sample 4 - A Propane Fireplace Converted To Work With Fireglass

The fireplace below is a propane burner, self installation with the 2" method, Starfire and Gold fireglass on top.

jr 1

The old burner with a smaller flame pattern which we will change to a double burner in our tray propane pan burner.

jr 5jr 4

A little bit of cleaning with a wire brush and Fireplace paint.

jr 6jr 7

We filled the bottom with pea gravel and the covered it with sand

jr 8

Then we installed the propane burner and filler it with pea gravel to the top of the burners

jr 9

You can see the pilot light and thermo-coupler are still exposed.

jr 10jr 12

So there it is, a clean burning propane fireplace 2" method, no soot, no smells, no carbon monoxide and it puts out a tremendous amount of heat. We sell the 2" method because it works and if anyone tries to tell you different, they need your money more than you do. We are the only company building propane burners for glass that don't soot or smell!

jr 13



Sample 5 - A Carousal Propane Fire Pit - Re-Built Re-Designed For Fire Glass 

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.
ted 3
ted 5

Burning wood and logs is just nasty and dirty! True story!

ted 6

ted 7

Above you can see the soot that come out of the fireplace and and leaves your house smelling so carbon monoxide fresh! YUCK!

ted 8

Add a bit of lime stone.

ted 9

A few pieces of copper.

ted 10

Below you can see the sand bed and the ignition box we built.

ted 11

Below are the two vent we installed for the air mixers inside of the ignition systems.

ted 12
ted 13
ted 14
ted 1

And here we are finished. The glass that was used was Starfire fireglass, Gold fireglass and Ice Ice Ice.  Now isn't that much better litter feller?  Modern times call for modern measures! I guess that's why we are Moderustic!

Sample 6
- A Re-Built Brick,  Propane, Fireplace with Starfire Fireglass and Custom Fireplace Surround
 

The pictures below are from Iggy in New York.  He decided to really modernize his old fireplace, This is an amazing transformation. So sit down and watch.

iggy 1

iggy 2

iggy 3

iggy 5

iggy 6

iggy 7

iggy 8


He sent me a picture of his propane fireplace and asked me what we can do to help him.  And I advised him to design a cardboard template that would ultimately be the stainless steel pan. 


iggy 9

iggy 13

 Below we added a pan and a vent which was taken out years ago.

iggy 15

iggy 16 iggy 10


A new pan, hood, Custom Fireplace surround, tile and Starfire fireglass! Nice insert, not! Just like "Nice Logs", not!

 

iggy 11

iggy 14

Above you can see the the key valve and below you don't see it. Because we made a removable panel!

iggy 12

iggy 19

iggy 21

There you have it in Rochester New York, Iggy it looks great.

iggy 23




Sample 7 - A Re-Built Brick,  Propane, Fireplace with Starfire Fireglass and Custom Fireplace Surround
These fireplace pictures were sent to us from a customer in Pasadena California.  Looks nice? Huh? NOT!

heidi 2
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 crushed 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.

heidi 7

Then we add a 2" base of crushed lava as a filler with Starfire fireglass on top with a double 24" burner installed.  and a black metal fireplace surround. 

heidi 14

Now this is nice! Especially with the black metal fireplace surround which completes the fireplace beautifully.  Most everyone tells us "Nice Glass"! 

heidi 15




Sample 8 - A Remote Control Propane Fireplace 
 

These fireplace pictures were sent to us by our customer John Addisonby  from Lakeland, Florida. The fireplace has one of our propane pan burners with a remote control. We built a brushed aluminum surround with out the inner glass per the customer request. 

john 1

As you can see the fireplace was not much to look at until we added our touch.

john 2

john 3

john 4

The glass that was used was a Gray base glass with Black and Copper Ruby Red Topper on top.

john 5

You be the judge, We think it turned out wonderful!

john 6


 

 

Sample 8 - A Complete Overhaul in Design  

These pictures were sent to us by our costumer Rich Kamins, who went for a more contemporary look.   This is a great example of "how to" make it low and lean!  One very nice job!

 rich 1

w bricks and some drywall

rich 2

rich 3

Some sand under the burner for filler to raise the base glass.

rich 4

rich 5

Rich used a Bronze and Bronze Reflective base fireglass. Topped with a bit of Starfire, Ice Ice Ice and about 2 pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper for a splash of color.

rich 6

rich 7

And here you have one nice finished fireplace.

rich 8




Sample 9 - A Re-Tiled Propane Fireplace.

The fireplace below is a propane fireplace. A bed of crushed lava was installed and a Clear base fireglass was used to cover it all up.

Step 1, paint it!
pat 1
pat 2
Finish the face and floor, very nice!
pat 3
Install the propane pan burner
pat 4
Fill in and all around the pan with crushed lava rock.
pat 5

On the left side you can see the gas connection which will soon be covered as well. On the right side the control cover will be covered as well. This propane pan burner was fitted with a remote control, radio frequency.

pat 6
pat 7

Now that your finished your ready for FIRE! Have your spouse lite it in the event they didn't follow the instructions! (just kidding again)!

pat 8
pat 9


When this tile was installed, it looked great, but it would of popped off the walls since it wasn't fire rated.  So always ask questions and do a little research before you invest your time and money.


Christy's Fireplace 1

Christy's Fireplace 2

Anyhow, our customer contacted us and we began helping them redesign the fireplace.  We recommended a card board mache' mock up.  This will give you a basic preview of your project.

Christy's Fireplace 3

Here is the whole mock-up completed, from top to bottom and mantle in card board.

Christy's Fireplace 6                   
Christy's Fireplace 5

So now that we know what the final fireplace design will look like, the customer began the reconstruction process!

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.   Make sure you do your Math right, it's very important when doing these layouts!

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.

Christy's Fireplace 11

Christy's Fireplace 12

Christy's Fireplace 13

Christy's Fireplace 14

Christy's Fireplace 15

Below you can see the slate is being added.

Christy's Fireplace 16

Christy's Fireplace 17

Christy's Fireplace 18

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                             

Christy's Fireplace 19

After installing the granite, we paint with a satin black paint on the back walls.   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

 Now for the glass installation.  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 27                          

Christy's Fireplace 26

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

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.

Christy's Fireplace 32



           

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 to finish it off.

                   

candice 2candice 1

Below is Rocky, just supervising.

candice 3

candice 4

candice 5

Below we wrapped the opening with durock, concrete board.

candice 6

Add a bit of drywall.

candice 7

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

candice 8

candice 9

candice 10

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.

candice 11

 

The fireplace below is in Palm Springs California. We used Starfire fireglass 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 the 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

Palm Springs Install 10

Looks awesome!

Palm  Springs Install 11
