I would've wanted to use mortar on that thing
I enjoyed watching it. 😃
So with the big cap on top how does the smoke vent out? I didn't see that part in the video?
g mor2" square firepit on my patio. Walls are 24" tall and made from solid limestone with a concrete cap. I would like to convert that into a fireplace. Is there a way to use one of these DIY kits and build on top of the existing four walls of the firepit or am I going to have to tear it down and start from ground up?
The cap stone in video looks like it’s flush over the top, not allowing smoke to escape. I notice in other pictures on your site the cap stone looks like its elevated. Video is a bit misleading. I think that’s what one person was asking about – why the capstone. Maybe you could explain how that’s put up on elevated stones – and how those stones are secured. Thanks.
love the look of this. I am no stone expert but after shopping around for kits I noticed these kits cost bit more than others from places like Menards, tech block etc… what is reason for that is it quality of the block used
Your big ass square LOL
cool name bro
what kind of sealant/adhesive are you using, and does it have to be able to withstand high heat? Do the fire bricks require a different adhesive than the stones?
please did you use the adhesive to install fire bricks
where do you buy the big ass square?
its not a square its a level .
can a Roman for place be built indoors? I love the way that looks. I'm designing my house and I want one in my house.
Can we get these on the East coast?
How many pieces of stone are in the kit?
your website says "Page Not Found" when I clicked on it. Just thought I'd pass that along.
Fire brick is not required on the floor of the firplace, only the walls?
Please explain the cap on the top
What's is the size of the angle iron? I know it's 46inchea long but is it 2×2??/ will it work with quarter inch 2×2?
Nice. Do these ship anywhere?
