Topic - How expensive to remove a chimney breast?

adstapleton - on 21 May 2013
Just about to buy our first house and of the many projects i plan to get done, removing a particularly big chimney breast from the kitchen is looking like the first on the list.

How much do you reckon a builder would charge? Is it cheaper to get the entire stack taken out and roof patched up or more sensible to get the breasts on the first and 2nd floors deleted and leave the stack in the loft (with appropriate support). Can I do any of it myself, if so what? NO doubt Building Control will want to have a look...?

The house is a 1960's semi-detached and the chimney is right in the middle, well away from the neighbour's walls.

Thanks in advance - Adam
