Chimney breast removal part 2 (upstairs). Here you can see the main bedroom the way it was to start with, but after removing all the wallpaper it was decided that the fireplaces and chimney breasts would be removed as part of a full refurb. After supporting the chimney in the loft, the chimney breast was removed brick by
brick from top to bottom. Here you can see 2 lines of smoke on the wall, one for the upstairs and one for the downstairs chimneys. You can also see where certain bricks were tied in to the main wall and how one side goes downstairs. The concrete hearth was very difficult to smash up and remove. Once the entire chimney breast was out, new joints were fitted supported by
joist hangers. New floorboards were installed, but that was not the end of this job! …far from it! This upstairs room was to be divided in half to create two bedrooms where there was previously one large one. A partition wall was fitted and plasterboarded. A new plasterboard ceiling went up too. The walls were plastered and new skirting boards fitted. The room was then painted and finally the capetsits went in too. Just for good measure it was decided that fitted wardrobes were to be installed, you can see how these were created on my other videos or click the link here! The upstairs certainly looks a bit different from how it started off! If you’ve got time why not pop downstairs next and see the process there. Thanks, bye!
