Possible to turn a basement fireplace to a first floor?
I hope someone can help me a bit on this. Everyone I speak to gives a blank stare.
I have a fireplace in the basement. I would like to seal that off and punch in a fireplace in the existing stack to make a first floor fireplace.
Has ANYone done this?
My main concern (IF this can be done) is support for the new firebox. Of course I'd have pros do all this but I'd still like to glean information on the basics of how this would be done and so I can make sure they're doing it right. There is access to the basement firestack due to an odd closet/vertical crawl there.
