Fireplace Conversion

Project by MoshupTrail posted 06-21-2013 11:36 PM 5019 views 0 times favorited 10 comments Add to Favorites Watch

After moving into our new home, we decided to put the 1980’s style wood burning fireplace to rest and update the living room. We chose a linear gas fireplace with a bed of glass beads. It has a blower that will heat the room effectively. This is a pretty straightforward project. No tricks. Just a lot of hard work!

Tearing down the brick (sorry about the sideways pic – its vertical on my pc)

Nothing left, but the fireplace itself.

Boxes of bricks to cart away. About 2 tons total!

Reframe the interior. You must use fireproof insulation and create a fire barrier above.
The new fireplace is “direct vent” so the entire length of flue pipe was removed.

Ready to install the new fireplace

Installed by the Pro’s (I don’t mess with gas)

Installing the quartz facing. I used a special low-slip thinset from Tile Shop. It worked very well even though the quartz tiles were heavy.

All done!

We will skip the rest of the room. Flooring, paint, etc.

Sweet job. I like that you elevated the hearth. Nice job on the entire room.

Thanks Mark. My wife’s idea. Put it at eye-level for seating. Also, eliminate the massive hearth on the floor and make the room look a little larger. You can see where I had to replace a section of floor about 6 feet by 16” in several of the pictures. Beefy concrete supports in the basement held the weight of the original facing. The quartz stacked stone only weighs about 300 lbs for the whole wall.

Wow. I never considered the weight advantage. That’s huge. Now you got me looking at my hearthstone for removal. Thanks for the perspective.

Very nice Mosh! Love that quartz :) I’m doing porcelain to reface our brick fireplace and man it’s heavy enough! looks like a groutless install, is that true?

Right. It’s a “stacked stone” look.
