FireBug were commissioned to construct an external fireplace chamber with twin wall chimney system.
This customer wanted to create a fireplace in a room without a chimney, but they didn’t want to loose the space that an internal false chimney breast take up. The solution is to build the fireplace chamber on the outside of the house.
This construction requires a small footing to be laid to support the weight of the new brickwork. We then match the construction of the main house, that is double skin brickwork with insulation. The fireplace chamber is operated from the roof structure by a fire break. We then run a twin wall chimney system to through the new roof structure to the correct termination height above the roof.
We then laid a granite front and back hearth inside and fitted a limestone fireplace surround. After this came the plastering and finally fitting the wood burning stove. The stove here is a salisbury 5 series.
Now our customer has a a safe & efficient way to heat their living room as well as a beautiful centre point to the room.
