This 1800’s cottage had a small fireplace with a 70’s brick surround. As this cottage was built in the 1800’s we were confident the original fireplace would be quite large. The original fireplace had been made smaller over the years which is typical of most period properties when central heating in homes became popular.
We excavated the fireplace to reveal the original fireplace and original oak beam. A pamment hearth was laid and a Stovax Stockton 8 wood burner installed.
Consort 9 Wood Burner with a pamment hearth and large wood beam.
Gas fire to be removed along with surround and hearth. We estimated the size of the original fireplace would be quite large as similar properties on the street had very large fireplaces.
This fireplace had a small gas fire and wood surround , the initial site survey and investigation predicted that the fireplace behind would be very big. To confirm this the installation team removed the gas fire and surround to knock through the wall and reveal the original builders opening.
We added the extra brickwork to the sides and a pamment hearth was laid and given 24 hours to set. The next stage was the installation of the Consort 9 Slim-line Wood Burner and large reclaimed oak beam.
Stove to be removed along with the surround and hearth. Fireplace to be opened up.
This fireplace remodel, due to the original construction of the fireplace this was as big as it could go without major building work.
With this remodel we removed the old stove, surround and hearth. We then opened up the fireplace to the original builders opening. This was as big as we could go without major structural work. The recess was fire boarded and the Natural Stone hearth was laid.
Once the hearth had set we could then proceed with the brick piers and brick slips. The brick slips where used to create an inner layer around the opening.
The Avalon 4 wood burning stove fitted well and would provide ample heat for the space.
To finish the remodel the Light Oak beam was fitted across the top of the piers.
The old surround, fire back and hearth was removed. Block work was used to even out the recess. We then used brick slips inside the recess as they are thin to provide more space around the stove and a traditional pamment hearth was laid.
The wall was then plastered and a geo-cast beam was fitted above.
