fireplace remodel cost
I am interested in getting a fireplace remodel done. My main reason is to update the look, and provide supplemental warmth to the room. What is the best way to go about tackling this project? setting a cost in mind? but I don't even know what's a fair cost for what kind of work.
I have seen on TV or a movie where an oversized fireplace is above a master bed's head board. In the fireplace is a ship anchor. It looked so grand and nice, obviously I won't be copying the exact same thing. However, I am very intrigued in who ever came up with the idea. I do not mind having a show piece fireplace in my family room that can be the center of the attention. unless anyone advises otherwise.
so how do i plan a budget? and i am sure once i have the budget, finding the right contractor will be even harder...
