Putting a range in an existing brick chimney?
nicndrewSeptember 15, 2013
We are about to undertake the ultimate budget kitchen revamp - installing a 2nd hand kitchen and re arranging how our kitchen flows.Our home is over 100 years old and has an existing fire hearth/brick chimney in the kitchen, floor to 10ft high ceiling- (fire box has been de- comissioned as its no longer safe) I would like to use this space to put a freestanding range/cooker in. Can we vent via the chimney? is putting power and lighting going to be a nightmare? Its an interesting feature and I think this would make the best use of it. Any thoughts welcome! We are staying with a traditional/country look. Photo attached - please forgive burning pile!
