We currently have a brick fireplace that takes up the entire wall in family room. Ã¯Â¿Â½We would like to remove the hearth completely. The hearth comes out 2 1/2 feet into the room (much wasted space). And it is a little over a foot high. Ã¯Â¿Â½My husband wants to install a rather large tv above the mantle. Ã¯Â¿Â½Is it possible to lower the fireplace opening and lower the mantle to give us more room above the mantle? Do you know the distance the mantle has to be from the fireplace opening?
Thanks for your help,
