We bought a 1920s house that sadly was devoid of many of the original features it would have had. We have been on a mission ever since to return some of those features back to the house.
No longer having chimney breasts or chimneys, a log burner was the easiest way for us. However, we wanted a traditional looking fireplace. We decided to create a fake chimney breast to create the look. We had to ensure we met all fire regulations so we took advice to ensure we were doing everything safely.
