Green Marble Fireplace with Beaumont 5 wood burning stove
We cut out the wall to allow us to sink the fireplace into wall and make good to it. We all closed the opening down by blocking up both sides.
We fitted this beautiful, monumental green marble fireplace. We added slate heads and slips to close the opening down. We also added cast iron panels inside the opening to give it an admirable look.
This was the end product. We made good to a plaster finish and installed the woodburning stove. The boss on the right hand side of the fireplace is 6ft 2 so you can see how massive this masterpiece is!
Real fire with corten rustic steel side panels
First stage was setting up and getting ready to do the job. We got all our tools and materials on site ready for us to commence the works
This is the inside view of how we set up from the inside. We laid protection down to protect the flooring, inside and the outside patio. We got our materials in place ready to lay blocks to close up the hole, getting ready for the next stage of the job
So we laid the blockwork and closed the hole up. This stage of the work consisted of us making metal frame work to create a shelf to allow the marble cladding to be installed.
We added rebar in between the metal frame work so we can pour concrete and make sure it is a strong structure to support the weight of the marble and more.
We poured the concrete in the frame work and had now been cladded in marble. The last parts remaining was to install the corten rustic steel side panels.
This is a rigid flue system with an exo-draft fan system to ensure all smoke is sucked out the flue.
