Apologies, I have no idea where to post this question, where to start, or where to look if anyone asked before.
We are looking to add a gas fireplace and framed “chimney breast” into the formal lounge of a typical 10yo project home. Fireplace will be on an external wall (brick veneer).
Looking at Jetmaster heat&glo 5x, for a more traditional look I suppose.
Question is how wide to build the new chimney breast? Internal wall its going on is only 4.5m wide, so we’ll end up with alcoves each side.
Thinking to split into thirds, so 1.5m alcove, 1.5m “built out” chimney breast, then 1.5m alcove the other side.
Looking for ideas, pix etc.
