The fire pit below is a mix of V Blue base glass and Azurlite base glass.
The fireplace below had a steel pan built so we could conceal the 12 volt battery operated electronic ignition beneath the pan. The glass that was installed was:
Clear base glass under the Starfire base glass Topped with Amber Diamonds.
Above and below you can see the solid cover as it hangs over the face to conceal the remote control ignition.
Here are several shots of some different variations of our RV Fire Pits. The come in standard sizes of 14", 16", 18" and 24".
In stainless steel or steel painted in a choice of 25 colors!
They are also being made available is a 20" round pan in stainless, steel painted or aluminum!
The square pans can have special lids/ covers made that are 3" to 6" tall which can be used as a base to set the fire pit on if you don't want it setting on the ground. We will post pictures of these in a few weeks or as soon as we can, time permitting. The pictures that were taken were with the company Motor Home (Tiffen Pheaton Bus)(one odf a kind). The RV Fire Pits were developed for us to take camping. Necessity is the mother of invention!
Above and below is our 24" stainless steel RV Fire Pit with Azurlite.
Above we are burning at 80,000 btu's
Below we are burning at 100,000 btu's
All of the RV Fire Pits we build we build with 100,000 btu capability but we recommend not to burn that high.
These are sitting on the typical plastic carpets used for motor homes and the bottoms don't get hot enough to melt the carpet.
We recommend using a portable 20 lb tank but you can tap into your coaches supply if you would like. We always take at least 2 extra tanks along so we don't have to drain the coaches supply.
Quick disconnect hoses come in 10'. 12' and even 15' lengths. You can even attach them together.
All through out the pictures you can see the propane tank close to the RV Fire Pit. We did this intentionally. You can use as long of a quick disconnect hose as you would like. We also stock this in all sizes.
Below you can see it is easy storage.
Below you can see our 18" steel RV Fire Pit.
Above and below is our 24" stainless steel RV Fire Pit.
Below David is putting the 18" pit away. With glass the 18" pit weighs about 35 lbs.
The advantages with these RV Fire Pits is that you don't have your coach or trailer filled with smoke any more! You can sit right outside of your door under your cover of your coach or trailer. One tremendous advantage we found is that when you are under any cover by at least 5' to 6' you create an inversion and you actually deflect the rising heat to travel sideways. No more smoke, soot or even ashes to clean up, ever! These are considered recreational fires by any state fire code and are not considered open flames. Just the same a s a propane BBQ. Now you can have your cake and eat it too!
We will post more pictures or the next generation RV Fire Pits as soon as they become available! RV Fire Pit page

Creativity and IMAGINATION is how.
We built a set of fire stick for an architect "Woody Dike" on the Nipomo, California project (seen above) a few years ago. Then Woody contacted us to build a set for him. He even sent us a drawing and included a diorama!
Check it out and tell us what you think!
Here is the blue print:
Woody is over the top!
Above and below you can see the control valves at the bottom of the Fire Sticks.
Below after installing and fine tuning the gas flow they then covered the base with sand and then topped it with Black Magic and several toppers. Awesome job Woody!
The fireplace below belongs to Robert and Rena in Palm Desert California. They choose a warm brown high heat paint too match their furniture. Here is the just finished surround:
Originally we installed two metal shields to cover and hide the nasty looking side vents. On many fireplaces to keep it minimal we do just the side covers which actually looks fine and finished.
Here is the surround installed. Looks great!
We made 3" sides and top with a 6" bottom with 2" of frosted glass installed on the interior.
See More on the Fireplace Surrounds Page!
The surround below was installed in Riverside California By Ruben. Ruben made a template to fit his fireplace. A bit over the top but Ruben is good for that! By making a preview template you can get a preview of what it will actually look like before we manufacture it for your fireplace. We will explain as we move on:
The wood and card board template. The blue tape will be frosted glass.
On the back side you can see the cover fins Ruben wanted to have installed. This was to cover what he did not want to see in the fireplace after the surround was installed. In our designs we ask what do you want to see and what don't you want to see.
Above and below you can see the surround front finished.
Above and below you can see the back side with the fins attached for installation. We will post pictures as soon as Ruben sends them to us.
The fireplace below is in Palm Springs California. We used Starfire base glass over a 2"
bed of sand. We will narrate as we go:
Here is the fireplace with the screen removed
Now we remove the doors, very simple. One screw on each side at the top generally removes the doors.
Below, remove the end of the flex line and screw it on to the stub out coming out of the wall.
Below, now attach the flex line from the burner to the stub out. Keeping the flex line curled under the burner.
Below, pour in as much sand (on lighter colors) as you would like to raise the glass bed.
Look how easy! Even my installers can do it! Bring th 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!
Pour the glass and your done! Our typical install where we don't have to paint is about 12 minutes!
The fireplaces below are located in Palm Desert California. These were both filler with crushed lava (3" to 4" each) and then topped with a Bronze base glass. We then added 6" gray Fire Balls. We will explain as we proceed:
This was the outdoor fireplace. 38" "H" burner was installed.
We then poured in about 4" of crushed lava filler.
Then we poured in about 1 1/2" of Bronze base glass.
Then we stacked in the 6" gray Fire Balls. We couldn't get any burning pictures because it was to bright outdoors.
The fireplace below was indoors in the family room. We started with about 3" to 4" of filler (crushed lava). We used a 38" "H" burner again in this fireplace as well.
Then we tested the flame pattern to insure the flames were not hitting the walls.
Then we added the 6" gray Fire Balls to the top of the Bronze base glass.
One very nice family room!
The 2 fireplaces below are Claremont California.
We installed Starfire base glass in each of them and then the customer ordered Ice Ice Ice and diamonds to accent each fireplace. Very nice stone work!
This is the living room fireplace and we poured about 3" of sand under the Starfire base glass. We used a 44" "H" burner under the Starfire.
The family room fireplace was filled with about 8" of sand under the Starfire base glass. We installed a 38" "H" burner on top of the sand.
The fireplace below was installed by Scott Hansford of Palm Springs California.
We made an aluminum border to separate the glass from the outer stone layer. This helped in design and saved on glass as well. We will explain as we move on:
Do you see how high the gas connection is? We sent a 90 degree elbow to point the gas line down and then added enough filler to the bottom of the gas line to conceal it under the glass.
The metal border is installed holding the outer layer of rock in place.
They didn't like the post in the fireplace so we cut a mirror to preview if in fact they wanted it covered at all. If they would of wanted it covered we would of made piece of super 8 stainless steel (highly polished) to cover the post. The mirror was only a temporary visual. DON'T USE REGULAR GLASS NEAR ANY FIRE! So if you are not sure, preview it. The glass we used was a Bronze base glass with Gold base glass and Clear Diamonds.
The fire pit below was purchased locally and then we converted it to burn propane without soot! The colors used were:
and topped with 1 lb of Copper Ruby Red Topper. I guess he wanted a lot of color.
Here is what is looked like when he started. These manufactures have no imagination!
This only cost about $100.00, complete!
The fireplace below is typical wood burning fireplace which we see every day. Once uncovered it looks like an incinerator. They are pretty nasty looking with out the fire burning. We like to show the before and after so you know what you really have.
Nice! Very Nice!
We had Starfire base glass installed with Ice Ice Ice on top.
The fireplace below has a StarfireStarfire base with:
Orange R140 Topper,
Ice Ice Ice,
Copper Blue and Steel Blue toppers.
The Orange R140 Topper is actually one of our chameleons, it turns to bright red when it gets hot and then changes back!
Our Copper Blue Topper is a chameleon as well. It turns to green and changes back to blue when cooled!
The portable fire pit below was build by Steve, one of our dealers at Extreme Flames. We can sell you all of the components so you can do this your self or Steve can build one for you. Use your imagination!.
You can install the FPPK stainless steel box or just the Copreci Valve to turn it on. The FPPK box also comes with the Pezo Sparker/ Igniter. You can purchase some of the parts or all of the parts, which ever you need.
Here are the pictures of the Wine Barrel Project!
Be sure to screw all of the boards before cutting any holes!
Above is the door and the FPPK box to the right.
We installed an 18" bowl with a false bottom. The ring that was used was a 12" double stainless steel ring.
If you filled the complete opening you will need 45 lbs for a 2" fill and if you only filed the bowl you will only need 18 lbs for a 2" fill.
My first choice would not of been a plywood top. Since then Steve is having a 48" round aluminum top being fabricated. You could also use granite, steel, glass, etc..... Use your imagination!
This next fireplace was done with lack of knowledge! First they installed a 18" single burner and some real interesting choices of glass. What they did do correct is have a 3" sand bed under their yuk glass. The first issue we repaired was the stub out on the left side of the fireplace floor. All we did was install a 90 degree elbow and connect a 1/2" flex line to the new double 24" burner. They had left the flex pointing in the air and then reduced it to a 3/8" line and to top that off added they very sad single 18" burner. We repainted their futile attempt (of painting) with dark metallic brown, added 10 lbs of sand and poured 75 lbs of Starfire base glass over the new burner and sand filler. We will explain as we move forward:
Below you can see the black marks under the paint.
Below you can see the flex line that was installed was left above the surface. Now if we tried that I think our customers would take us out and string us up, what do you think? To top it off this customer was an attorney! Completely happy with what we did.
Here is the new paint on the back walls.
Now we added the Starfire base glass. One thing we have been doing a little bit different is to bring the glass out from the front of the fireplace. We let the glass come out of the fireplace from 3 to 6 inches to make it look even more grand. What do you think?
Here is a the almost finished product of what we do! We left several colors with the customer to add. We will post pictures when they arrive.
The pan below was created by John Webber of San Diego. He made a cardboard mock up of what he wanted in his fireplace and we duplicated it in stainless steel. Here is John's fireplace now, our pan and we will posts pictures of the finished fireplace with our pan when John sends them to us. The glass that was installed in this pictures of the pan is Pink Rosa base glass.
