We took a traditional openfire with ‘standard’ British opening size and fitted a modern, super efficient insert style woodburner. View our transformation on the right to see how easy it is to update your fireplace. Contact us if you would to discuss this or other types of transformation.
The original fireplace used to burn smokeless fuel or wood
We excavated the inside of the fireplace to make space for the woodburner box. We removed the front hearth bricks.
The insert outer case is fitted to the opening and we layed a new slate front hearth. We fitted an external air kit to this stove so that is takes it’s combustion air from outside = less draughts in room
Final transformation! The stove is fitted and working. Our customer was delighted with the result and so were we. This was a Contura i4 Classic with external air kit
