how to move our fireplace?

Posted by valleigh (My Page) on

We have a 1920s house with a 1983 addition. The original house has a fireplace with a brick chimney. The addition is a large room on the other (back) side of the fireplace. We want to "flip" the fireplace so that it is facing the room which is currently behind it, in the new addition, but using the flue of the existing fireplace.
How hard is this to do, and what does it cost?

RE: how to move our fireplace?

No one can really give you an answer on this without seeing it (especially since it is so old) - I'd be suspicious if they did. You should get a mason who is experienced with fireplaces out to look at it and give you a ball park figure. It can be done, but if there are significant structural and/or building code issues it can get expensive pretty quickly.
