The fire pit below is a new product line from TC, one of our newest dealers. These come with a fibre optics feature, fire and water feature included.The glass that was use was a Clear Base Glass with Ice Ice Ice Topper and a splash of Dark Red Orange Topper, Copper Ruby Red Topper and several Diamonds through out for a pretty nice look. We will have pricing on these as soon as we start to distribute their newer products.
The fire table below was built for Dr. Ramsey Burton in Kentucky. We are going to show you from beginning in the shop to the finished product that Ramsey envisioned for his patio. Ramsey did a wonderful job in planing, building and execution of this project. The glass he used was a Starfire Base Glass
with Ice Ice Ice Topper
on top. Here we go:
This was the lay out for the table to come!
these were the pictures we sent Ramsey after assembly and testing of the fire bowl, water pumps and fibre optics. The glass we tested with usually is our Multi Mix Base Glass
. It tends to show off many colors and always looks great.
Above you can see the gas line and electrical
Access panel below.
Below the bowl was fitted.
Don't ever forget to install a trimming valve!
There are 6 colors on Ramsey's color wheel in the fibre optics.
Above and below you can see the cover Ramsey have made to protect the fire table when not in use.
Great job Ramsey!
Las Vegas Yard Crashers!
This will air in April or 2010!
Here is a preview
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!
Above the pavers were installed the day before.
Below is the patio with the outdoor kitchen set aside for now.
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.
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.
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.
Above and below you can see the inside of the planter is coated to prevent water from leaching out.
Above you can see on the ground that we brought the fire bowl in. Just so you know it was about 300 lbs!
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.
Above and below you can see the sand was installed as a base for the artificial grass to come.
Above they are compacting the sand for the grass to be installed.
Below Ahmed is finishing the dry creek bed.
Below the grass is installed.
Below the dry creek bed is finished and the grass is now installed in the back are as well.
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!
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.
