A Hole New Look
The client had purchased a new build detached property without a fireplace.
Having contacted Sarsen Energy, via a recommendation from an existing customer, we arranged a site visit from one of our surveyors, at a time convenient for the client, to discuss the possibilities of installing a wood burning stove in their lounge.
Due to the desired location of the stove, it was not practical to site the stove internally.
Therefore we decided to construct an external chamber to house a wood burning stove and install an external twin wall flue.
We proceeded to construct the external block and brick fireplace to the required dimensions, compliant with current building regulations.
Whilst liaising with Building Control and matching the existing brickwork, our in-house bricklayer built the new fireplace.
As the existing chimney was purely cosmetic and of a fiberglass construction, the twin wall flue would continue externally.
Using our very own Cherry-Picker, the powder coated twin wall flue was then installed to the gable end of the property.
The Finished Article.
Having created this 'Hole New Look' a honed black granite hearth was installed with an attractive contemporary Hwam 3610 in black with glass door sited in the new opening, complete with angle-iron frame to the sides and an oak beam above.
Externally we built a bespoke wood store to match the dimensions of the new chamber.
All of this work was undertaken by Sarsen Energy in just five days.
