Brand New- trying to find step-by-step instructions (Brandon, FL area)
 
Hi! My husband and I are wanting to build a wood burning fireplace on our patio near the pool area. We contacted a couple of contractors, and they would use the IsoKern with a 28" opening for $5700.. That sounded a bit outrageous to us, and it doesn't seem like it should be TOO hard to build ourselves. We have scoured the net and can not seem to find any step-by-step instructions on how to build it. Does anyone know a site or book for us? We just want maybe 4' long by 3' deep... Can we build the frame out with cinder blocks and line it with firebricks? :confused: Home Depot and Lowes both told me that their patio paver bricks are firebricks, but from reading this forum- they are not. Would the paver bricks hold up in the heat for just an occasional fire? We are not really looking for the heat- just the ambiance. And we live in Florida, so it will not be used THAT much... Any thoughts? Or any ideas where we can purchase these materials??? Thanks!!! :p
