Removing a fireplace....bad idea?
June 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am doing an entire house remodel, and I have no use for the fireplace. The cost to extend the current one up through the new floors (adding a second and third level) plus making it pretty will far exceed just removing it and putting some nice shelving in the living room. My architect is against this because all nice homes have a fireplace. Not sure what to do and would love some input on this decision. Thanks!
