Retirement deck renovation features Hemi firebowl on HGTV

Solus Decor is yet again pleased to have the Hemi 36″ firebowl featured on HGTV’s Disaster Decks! In the Deck Anne Hates episode, designer Paul Lafrance helps a retired couple, Anne and Paul, rebuild their 30 year old decaying deck that was becoming not only mossy, but dangerous.

The goal was to build an oasis of a deck that Anne and Paul could enjoy their retirement on. Thus, it would be a no-brainer to include a Solus firebowl that adds an artistic architectural element to any outdoor space.  We think Paul Lafrance did a stunning job making the Hemi firebowl the focal point of this beautifully designed deck, which will now provide warmth and ambiance throughout their golden years.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE HEMI 36″ FIREBOWL

The Hemi firebowl creates an instant gathering place for relaxed conversations, dining atmosphere or backyard campfire marshmallows. (Yes, you can actually roast marshmallows on them!).  In addition to their beauty, they are a wise choice for a deck one has invested in as they are built to withstand the extreme climates of Canadian weather due to them being made of our ultra high performance concrete which is unique to Solus.

ALL SOLUS FIRE PITS ARE CSA CERTIFIED

Unlike many fire pits on the market, all Solus fire pits are CSA certified as appliances (not just burners) to match new regulations in BC, ON and AB.

Disaster Decks features Hemi firebowl on nautical-themed deck

How many of you have had a deck that was falling a part and for whatever reason, chose to cover up the damage as a short term way of dealing with it?  That’s exactly what happened with Barb & Brent Hates. Not having the knowledge or know-how to fix it up, they, believe it or not, used boats to cover up the damage on their rickety, old deck.

In this episode of Disaster Decks featured on HGTV, Paul Lafrance and his team gave Barb & Brent Hates a nautical-themed deck that shows off their waterfront view. In order to allow the Hates to spend as much time as possible on the deck during the year, they chose to include the Solus 26″ Hemi firebowl. This will keep them toasty warm while enjoying the waterfront view and entertaining friends, neighbours and family. The addition of the plinth (below the bowl) elevates the firebowl to the height of their chosen deck furniture.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE SOLUS 26″ HEMI FIREBOWL

Smaller in size than the 36″ Hemi firebowl but packing an equally big punch, the 26″ is perfect for smaller deck circumferences while not compromising on heat.

Disaster Decks features Elevated Halo for ageing deck reno

Picture a beautiful, century old, brick schoolhouse that was converted into a home for a family of 5. Sounds like an architect’s dream, right? Now imagine the shape of its 100-year old rotting deck. Not great, huh? For Linda & Asad Hates, this was the embarrassment that took away from the charm of the home they adored. Their rotting deck had holes, a broken hot tub and benches with makeshift railings. Fortunately, in the Linda & Asad Hates episode of Disaster Decks, Paul Lafrance came in to help give this charming schoolhouse’s deck a dream renovation job which included the Solus Elevated Halo 36″ fire pit.

A LITTLE ABOUT OUR ELEVATED HALO FIRE PIT

The Solus Elevated Halo 36″ Fire Pit is a modern interpretation of the primordial campfire raised to coffee table height to invite conversation and to place a drink or canapé on the surrounding table surface. Handcrafted in smooth high-performance concrete, this serene outdoor fire pit cradles its flame in a beautifully, sculptural concavity. A peaceful floating slab, the Solus Elevated Halo’s glow invites reflection and intimate gatherings.
