Question: We are hoping to buy a house that happens to have a wood burning stove in the living room. We are considering removing it because it takes up sooo much room, but it sits on a
brick platform and that would need to come out too. This is a slab foundation. Is that brick surrounding a wooden frame or is there a huge chunk of concrete under it? I am assuming that there is a way that these things are generally put together. Sorry the other post got cut off.

Thank you for your answer, it is very helpful. If it is a poured platform...Ugh, hope not.
Maybe we will just try to remove one brick in the back corner to be sure, but my guess was that there is a wood frame. We are thinking about taking the wood stove to the back porch so it can still be used. Your tile looks very nice.
