Unwanted Fire Hearths Removed

Click on an image below to enlarge and tell the story...


Here we show you a step by step removal of the concreted fire hearth, turning the ugly old fashioned, undesirable feature into more than useful floor space.


The first image shows the ugly concrete hearth making the room look untidy.

The second image shows the removal of the boards in a pattern to step the joins which helps hide the repair.

The third image shows the area re-boarded using old and new to disguise the repair once the extra joist has been fixed in place for support.

The forth image shows the area buffed, coloured and finished to match the rest of the floor...

All that is required now, is a carpenter to blend in a new peice of skirting and...  'Voila!'













Images five to eight show the same process applied to a floor with the boards running in the opposite direction... Not a problem just a little more complicated...

Tongue and Groove Boards (T+G)

To access under or into a T+G floor, you have to first remove the tongues from above with a skill saw. This is a very delicate operation as you DO NOT want to destroy the boards to disguise the access once re-fitted. T+G floors are often fixed with secret nails, so these too have to be sawn through during the process.

Therefore, to patch in a T+G floor during the fire hearth removal process, great care and planning is required.

This can be even more difficult with narrow boards especially if originally laid to what is now a very rare 'Oregon Pine', or 'Douglas Fir' as shown. The reclaim purchase can cost as much as £100 per sqM if you can locate any, so waste is not an option!
