Build Big Stone Fireplaces

Updated:2014-01-10 10:41:37
Chimney construction is an exacting process. It requires careful planning and precision workmanship to create a durable and safe chimney that efficiently removes smoke from your environment. You must adhere to stringent building code regulations and all safety precautions put in place. Because it is labor intensive and requires knowledgeable planning, having a fireplace built is an expensive undertaking. The experienced do-it-yourself home builder will find a great deal of satisfaction building a stone fireplace as well as saving on building costs.

Instructions as follows:

                                                 

Firstly, choose a fireplace style and size. Draw out a plan. Your fireplace and chimney design is controlled by the rules and regulations of your local building code. Always follow code safety guidelines. Prior to construction, obtain necessary building permits.
Secondly, select the stone for your project. Stone is available in a wide array of sizes, shapes, textures and colorization. When you choose the size and design of your fireplace remember it will function as an integral part of your home. Avoid novelty patterns or colors that you may not wish to live with forever. A neutral shade of stone, that blends with or compliments the exterior of you home, will add timeless grace and elegance to the structure. Large rocks used in the base of the fireplace, add depth and define the dimension of your huge stone fireplace. You may purchase rocks from rock quarries or building supply centers. You may also wish to gather your own field stone from your local area. Be sure to seek the permission of the landowner before removing rocks in the wild. For lands managed by the United States Forest Service, a rock permit is required. You can also use cultured or molded stone as a substitute for natural building stone.
Thirdly, research types of stone fireplace designs and visit fire place design centers and equipment stores for ideas to spark your imagination and creativity. Take into consideration the location of your fireplace, such as whether it is new construction or an outdoor fireplace for your garden landscape. The location and purpose of your fireplace will help you design the ideal style for your project. Decide on the style of the mantle or any other construction ideas, such as shelves, that you wish to include in your fireplace project.
