Commissioned by Chaplin Farrant Wiltshire architects to install a large open 4-sided solid fuel fire within a new barn conversion.
The client had very specific requirements and wanted a ‘rounded look’ to the chimney stack. In addition to this the client requested a ‘brick built round chimney’ at the top. This meant a structure had to be built to hold the flue in place as well as to take the weight of the bricks positioned at the top.
What we actually did: Played a key part in the planning, design and building process. Responsible for the installation of the flue (including meeting the specific requirements). Responsible for the installation of the large 4-sided fireplace made out of solid Bathstone. In summary, the fireplace has become an integral part of the house and is a magnificent central feature to the open plan living room.
Project time: 6 months
