Chimney, no chimney. We decided to demo the old fire place to increase space, but building a new fireplace and chimney is too expensive (because of obnoxious building code requirements). Besides, who needs a fireplace in LA?!?!
Noooo! You got rid of the amazing fire place!
The fireplace was HUGE - especially after the walls were demo’d and you could walk around it. At least 6’ x 6’. It will make the family and living rooms much more spacious.
Don’t worry, we will have an outdoor fireplace.
Well in that case, no big deal. Outdoor fireplace will be way more fun anyways!
