General Fireplace Work in DH7
Posted 10 October 2016
Job Description:
We currently have a chimney breast in our living room which previously I believe was a working fireplace it is currently blocked with an electric fire in place with surround and floor level hearth. We are looking to firstly open this up to become an open fireplace and remove the current surround and hearth. The more complex job we ideally want to get done is to raise the fireplace opening around 40cm (so the hearth is like a shelf sitting 40 cm) from the ground. I'm not sure if it will even be possible to raise the fire box/opening but it would be good to see what we can get. In the end we want to have a fireplace which is 40cm up with a shelf style hearth continuing around the entire width of the chimney breast with a central wood store underneath the hearth/shelf. Much easier to explain with images of our current fireplace vs images of what we are thinking. Can send photos when needed. Seems like there will be quite a variety of work/skills required to do this, would ideally want someone to be HETAS registered to insure any changes in the opening will still allow for a safe working open fire.
