I like the fire feature, is that custom built?

    Did you use a single gas pipe? Did you use a ss tray to hold the stone?

    The fire feature is made with a single stainless steel rod with the gas feed coming in the center. Thanks for the question!

    The deck is supported with conventional wood framing. We just go through the extra effort to make it appear as if it floating. Thanks for the question!

    Thanks, I spoke with a business in Florida that only builds Ipe and Tigerwood decks for highend clients an they only use Messmer's UV+ for Hardwoods. I first used Cabots product for Ipd and Tigerwood type hardwoods. Now to find a place in Austin that carries Messners and give it a try..
