Expanding Spaces – Making a House a Home – Removal of the Chimney
Day Two – 24th October
Demolition of chimney
Two guys came to demolish our existing chimney located on the west side of our house where the new extension is to be located. They removed all but a third of the chimney because:
- the insulation is like mini foam balls like in a bean bag and whilst removing the chimney it had created a snow storm of polystyrene balls! This is because part of the cavity had become open.
- There was only a single sheet of plasterboard between us and the outside world so for security it was decided to leave the bottom part of the chimney enclosed until they could make good the brickwork.
