After ripping out the fireplace, the logical thing was to put one back in, so that’s just what happened today.
I took the day off work to get some stuff done and by lunchtime had cleared out all the rubble with a waste collector. I hadn’t planned on helping but as he showed up single handed, it was the only way. That was fun.
So with that done, the fireplace was moving along nicely.
And finally by 8pm as the gasman was running late, we were all fired up and ready for a sit down.
So here it is and what a massive improvement! I love the clean Edwardian design, perfect with our simple coving and sympathetic to the building.
Just a bit of plastering and painting to do!
