We’ve said many times over that a wood burning stove doesn’t need to be installed into a fireplace, it can be can be fitted almost anywhere in your home without the need for a chimney.

Well one customer wanted their stove housed inside a fireplace that wasn’t there…so we built him one!

Before we could start the job, we capped off the gas supply and removed the gas fire and marble fireplace. Then we could begin the construction of an internal false chimney breast using concrete block for the fire chamber and studwork for the breast itself. For the hearth area we used black limestone flags for a rustic but clean look.

We supplied and installed a black powder coated twin wall flue system which ran up the side elevation then finished off the false chimney breast with a bespoke solid oak beam and plaster skim, ready for decorating.

The stove our customer chose was a British built Dunsley Enviroburn 8 solo manufactured locally in Holmfirth, Yorkshire.

Theres even a log store right next to the stove to house the kiln dried logs we supply!
The images here show the steps where the absence of a chimney was not a problem. Almost any stove can be installed in this manner, just contact us on 01706 822208 to discuss your options or pop into the showroom and we’ll be happy to discuss in greater detail.
