Well, this morning I woke up, got on the interwebs, drank some coffee.
Went back to the living room. Made some waffles, drank more coffee, turned on the TV. Accidently got on some 'home improvment' type shows.
Drank a little more coffee.
Looked at the ugly fireplace. Drank a little more coffee.
Decided that this was the day the ugly, dangerous, I don't feel safe building a fireplace in, heat stealing, (did I mention ugly) fireplace needed to die.
So I ripped the sucker out....
Next weekend, roof repair. I figure the thing has been leaking for 20 years, another week won't kill it....
I've finally got a project!!!
I plan on replacing the fireplace with a 'media' alcove. Thinking something kind of craftsman like. The new fireplace will go on the left. Will order it this week.
I just couldnt take it anymore!!!!
