Removing a chimney
As part of our kitchen reno, we are removing a non-functioning chimney that runs up the middle of the house between the kitchen and the half bath. This will allow us to move the entrance to the half bath so that it won't feel like it's IN the kitchen anymore. (yay!) It will also make the half bath a bit larger. (double yay!)
We are DIYers, but would prefer not to tackle this project ourselves. The good news is we have already done some of the pre-work:
1. The old hot water heater used to vent through this chimney, so we remedied that.
2. Last year when we had the roof done, the roofers removed everything above the roofline for us, so the attic just has a stump of a chimney in the floor.
So, I am wondering how much I should expect something like this to cost, and what type of person should I call for a quote? Mason, chimney expert, demolitionist???? :)
I'm so looking forward to getting this done because once the half bath is all set, the flooring for the kitchen and half bath can be installed! Every job is connected to another job....
