This property had an open fireplace that had been blocked up. Initially we opened up thew fireplace, swept and lined the chimney. The brickwork inside the fireplace benefited from being cleaned up and repointed with a lime mortar. The hearth had already been laid, it was adequate and looked right for the fireplace. The stove is an ACR Oakdale with high legs – its a very efficient stove and heats the room up in no time. To finish this install we fitted a rustic oak mantle piece above the fireplace and also fitted two shelves of a similar size into the alcove next to the fireplace. All were finished with a danish oil to give a natural effect.
