In this video, Hylton walks us through a client’s project to remove two chimney breasts and two structural walls to create a large, open plan kitchen dining area.
To support the actual upstairs floor joists, we inserted a steel beam across the top where the structural wall used to be. We also isolate and capped off the gas for the gas fire that used to be in the fireplace.
On the first floor, we took out a chimney breast as the client wanted to reconfigure the room as a bedroom with integrated bathroom. We also steamed the wallpaper off the back wall, plastered the entire area and supported the remaining chimney in the loft area with a pair of gallows brackets and concrete lintels.
Hylton Chimneys are specialists in chimney breast removal and structural wall removal but we also do all kinds of general building work required to complete the project. To contact us call 020 8346 2254 or complete the contact form below.
