And the wall comes tumbling down
We tackled a huge project over the weekend in order to make room for the (used) woodstove we bought over the summer in hopes of lowering our huge heating bill. Above is a before photo of one side of a double sided fireplace that hasn't been used since who knows when (well over 50 years since last use). The fireplace/chimney may be 100 years old, we don't know. We believe it was part of the original kitchen and used for cooking before they connected the kitchen to the main house by building a room in between the two.
Once the chimney guy does what is needed to connect the woodstove and get it functioning, we will then decide how we want to finish the ceiling & floors. Right now the ceiling has drywall covering the original wood board ceiling and the floors are unfinished wood. Lots of options to mull over for both. What would you do?
