The Story behind our latest fireplace

A customer phoned to get a book case built in her family room. After designing this for her, Denise commented “I’d really like a book case surrounding the fire place as well?” I said “I would need to know the fireplace specifications to do this, would you like us to supply the entire renovation including the fire place cabinetry, building and plaster work and the flue?”

As a result we came up with this design.

Here is a step by step procedure that could happen at your place in the near future.

  • We meet with you at your place to look for a suitable place in your home, discus your dream fire place renovation to design a masterpiece in the style to suite you.
  • Select the triple skin zero clearance fire place of your choice, value the project to fit your budget.
  • Book in the cabinet/joinery delivery/install date, 5-6weeks out.
  • Schedule the building, plastering and fireplace install for the week before the cabinet/joinery delivery/install. 4-5 weeks out.
  • Order matching cornice
  • Onsite preparation – set out foot print for new cabinets and hearth, cut away excess carpet and keeping excess skirting just in case, relocate power for fire place fan force, TV sound and lighting.
  • Set out and fix treated pine timber work to house zero clearance kit. Fit and install zero clearance kit, fireplace and triple skin flue kit with waterproof cowling.
  • Fit Giproc to timber set plaster and fit and set cornice.
  •  Install cabinet/joinery and mantel, ready to paint the new Gyproc wall and cornice.
