I have a woodstove in my basement with a huge hearth made from brick and slate. The hearth is too big. How do I go about removing it. It was built on top of the cement basement floor. Is this something I could attempt myself?
This crack is only 1/8" or less thick. The top of the picture is at the edge of the house by the foundation (slab on grade) and ends at a the edge of the walkway. It is not high enough to trip on yet. What is the best way to fix this? Thanks for any info.
Our new front door has arrived, and we have discovered a glitch in our plans to update the porch. We want to put plank boards all around the porch area, but when the brick was removed on
the wall where the door goes we noticed the base that was built for the brick to sit on. (Guess we should have known this!) We'd rather remove the brick than to put the boards on top of it, but the boards won't come out as far as the concrete footing thing. Any ideas on how to remove or disquise this little roadblock? I'm open to all suggestions!
