Step 1: Prepare the project area

Prepare a stable, level project area by following these steps:

Excavate area approximately 5″ below grade.

Excavate approximately 6″ larger than the actual project dimensions.

Fill 4″ with suitable base material, compact and level in all directions.

If installing on an existing patio or suitable base you may proceed to install the project after ensuring the base is level.

Step 2: Stack TuscanStone

Stack stones adding adhesive between layers.On upper layers glue blocks on both bottom and sides where they touch other blocks. This is important for additional reinforcement.

On Layer 14, ensure that each block is glued on multiple surfaces for added strength.

Wait 72 hours for adhesive to fully set before use.

For illustration purposes, the metal  replace insert has been removed from the photos in Layers 1–5 in order to see the entire project more clearly. However, if using the metal  fireplace insert, it must be installed before Layer 2. If using a professional mason to install a traditional  fire brick insert, this can be done once the project is complete.
