    Hi guys,

    Looking for some advice on opening up my chimney breast.
    There are two fire places in front and back room leading to one stack.

    The back room one is a little different I need to to create depth and width but unsure if it’s safe to remove said bricks. Previous one was straight forward fitted lintel and replaced brickwork this one is a lot trickier any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you jay

    I fitted mine, forward of the opening, with the flue pipe off the back of the burner, (Franco belge) good make,
    You can cook on it then. !

    This give lots of extra heat in the room,

    I was thinking that but the opening is still only 57cm wide and you need a 15cm clearance either side and I want it sitting at At least half/part in the chimney breast. so unless I have it totally in front of the breast (which would look a bit mad) I still need to increase the width of opening.

    Are you sure you need 15cm to brick (non flammable)?

    I’m going to hardiebacker and tile it reducing it further. The stove would have to be around 30cm wide
