You buy a house that already has one. PS I hear they are not approving them in SoCal anymore either on new construction.

Here is the answer that Brent of a Colorado sip generously placed in answer to a similar question re a similar fireplace (search Houzz Capitol Creek by Derek Skalko)
The Castle Creek fireplace used a 1/8" thick steel plate called laser plate. One could also start with a 'pickled and oiled' plate. A material that is without mill scale. The surface was orbital sanded thru to a 240 grit finish. We used the Birchwood Casey product M20 deluted 50% with distilled water. This patina is a solution that includes selenious and phosphoric acids. The diluted patina was sprayed on with misting bottle and worked in with fine Scotchbrite pads and kept wet with the patina until the desired color was reached. It was then immediately flooded with water and force dried with compressed air and towels. Your metal worker can decide what lacquer to best use, there are many that would work I believe. http://birchwoodtechnologies.com/antiquing/options.html
ANTIQUE BLACK® M20 IMMERSION
Weggis......looks nice.
Sincerely,
Brent

The wall for the fireplace is 6ft by 14ft. It has 2 ft wide windows on each side floor to ceiling. I am trying to finalize size of firebox and placement. Would welcome your comments.

Would this tile be attached like tile would or would it be bolted to the wall? It looks like there is grout. Thank you.

We are trying to engineer a steel fireplace for our under construction house right now. How are the pieces attached? welded together, grinded and polished? attached to the wall behind and space left for the expansion of the steel? PS the patina is beautiful!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to The Hearth: It Makes a House a Home
A minimal metal wall around the fire makes a strong statement.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Less Is More: 6 Principles of Minimalist Design
The luscious gray wool on these ottomans is sensual and warm in front of this minimal fireplace surround. For both the fireplace and the ottomans, the clean lines assure that the material is what you will notice.
Steel. An entire fireplace wall clad in steel has a commanding presence. The industrial feel goes hand in hand with minimalism for those who love the less-is-more look. Design idea: Applying texture to this common material during fabrication ensures a unique visual depth.
