Commercial fireplaces outdoor, wood boxes and the reason why they call them elements is because they come in different pieces, so you'll see over here we got the fireplace over there. We've got some wood boxes later on this spring, we'll bring in some grill islands. So one of the nice things about these is is what you see is what you get so what you see in the catalog, so when you're talking to a client or a potential client or you're talking with the landscape designer everybody already knows what it is, so they can see exactly what the piece is in the catalog versus something that's handmade and made is very cool. It's very time consuming it's very expensive.
These can sometimes be a little bit more economical and it's. What you see is what you get on the customer in right, right right and you got to have a certain talent to be able to to build one of these. Very it's very expensive, and very you do you have to have a lot of talent and most contractors are not going to spend the time to make it look as good as somebody can make it look, that's built in a factory and they drop it off you're.
On-site, so one of the first key things you want to do is you want to make sure that you get the base work? It's all in anything paper wise, it's all about that base, so you always want to make sure that your base is set. So not for your paves patio. Likewise for your element, these are very heavy. This one weighs about 4,000 pounds with the top on there and then the boxes are about a thousand twelve hundred pounds of pee, so you've got quite a bit of weight. You don't want that moving in time, so the base is key.
This just kind of illustrates how you do that we drilled some piers, but some piers in the bottom of this pad and then made a pad and then we're gonna set our fireplace on top of that today and then, later on, we'll put paves up. This is my question for you because I'm gonna go. This is for dummies dude, because I have no clue. I'm learning this so for this concrete right here, yeah you drilled holes with an auger right, yeah, 36 inches or whatever it was.
