General Fireplace Work in EH25
Posted 19 October 2013
Job Description:
I am in the process of buying a upper maisonette which has a chimney. The home report says that it isn't blocked but it currently has a gas fire installed at the fireplace in the living room. Secondly; the fireplace is located on the wall between the living room and kitchen. I would like to extend it to a double-sided fire place, opening onto the kitchen also. The fire place surrounds is 1.2m wide / 80cm tall, and the wall is about 55-60cm thick. There isn't a fixed air vent so far as I could see, so I would want to fit that on the kitchen side, which has an external-facing wall. I can obtain a double-sided 10KW stove with 3KW boiler, 1.2m of 6" flue, 3.5m of flexible flue for the chimney, clay pot adaptor for the flexible flue, and cowl - I've been quoted £800 for all of that I would like to know how much it would cost to; (1) remove the existing gas fire (2) extend the fire place to the other side of the wall (3) lay a simple hearth (4) fit the stove, flue, and cowl (4) fit an appropriate vent on the kitchen external wall Also; if you are able to supply a double-facing stove, etc for less than £800 then I'd welcome another quote for those parts too. Thanks!
