Custom Remodeling Project – A Little History
A few years back, ContractorMen built a new interior for a beautiful lake house in North Georgia. Part of this renovation included removing an old, inoperable wood-burning stove and the demolition of the stonework surround. The property owner had no use for the old stove and gave it to us. It stayed in storage for many years, awaiting its next life, always in the back of our minds.
Wood Burning Stove Install
We were recently contacted by some homeowners looking for a wood-burning stove. Their existing fireplace was small, vent-free, and had no chimney. Basically, this fireplace put out little to no heat. It was really only good for hanging stockings at Christmas time.
We unearthed the old wood-burning stove from storage and got to work, giving it new life. Refurbishing included replacing the glass door and cleaning up the stove. Demolition of the old fireplace took place. Incidentally, we found an electrical fire hazard behind the wall. A gorgeous antique copper ceiling panel was added, beautiful stonework installed, a fireproof base installed, and a stove pipe that vented through the ceiling built. Creating a unique stove was a fun custom remodeling project that the homeowners were thrilled with. Now they can actually enjoy heat from their unique stove.Contact us online or call our office directly at 404-801-5656.
