In Response To: chimney breast removal (Ade)

I have ever heard the term 'chimney breast'....Does not mean it doesn't exist...Just that I have never heard it...Sometimes different regions of the country have local expressions for the same thing that neither would understand...

Anyhow, I gather you want to remove somthing from a lower art of a chimney and worry that the upper part of the chimney will remain stable?

Generally anything you do to lower part of a chimney will weaken the rest. If it were my house I would call a local architect or fireplace company and get their input...
