Surround About

Having heard about Sarsen Energy from their neighbours, the client wanted to discuss the options regarding the possible installation of a multi fuel stove, to replace their inefficient open fire. 

We decided that the best option was to remove the existing stone surround and excavate to reveal the original builders opening. Then lining the opening with a heat resistant decorative board and upcycling the original slips to create the rear hearth.


Having lined the chimney with a class-1 stainless steel flexible liner, and fitted a steel register plate in to the top of the opening, we refitted the original surround to the newly created opening.

We installed a Chesney Beaumont 6Kw multi fuel stove in to the aperture to create a traditional look. 

The client painted the internals of the opening the same colour as the chimney breast to maintain their colour scheme.

 This installation was completed in two days.
