I finally put together the fireplace and it looks great in my backyard. I managed to put it together all by myself, but I definitely recommend two people doing it, as you need to be very careful when you screw together the two pieces of glass. I think one of the instructions in the manual was not right, but I didn't see anyone mentioning it in the reviews, so maybe it's just me. In any case, the fireplace is standing up, so I must have done it right. Instead of gel fuel, I have placed three big green candles on the holders and they look great. Even if I am not using the fireplace, it does look great as a modern decor in my backyard. Now I just need to figure out how to cover it up when the raining season comes!
