Our Fireplaces At The Farm

This fireplace is in what we are going to make the living room.

This is the back side of that fireplace
which opens up in to what we are going to use as the dining room.

This is the left side of the fireplace in the dining room.

This is the right side of the fireplace in
the dining room looking in to the living room.

This is looking at the dining room fireplace.
On the left was a closet and on the right was a little hallway that led
you in to the living room.
It also had a little closet.

This is when we started opening it up.
We have a plan.

This is the same wall as the above picture but on the living room side.
Look at that old wallpaper.
Notice the fireplace in the living room?

Back on the dining room side.

See how we have opened the right side. You can see the closet is
gone and opened up in to the living room.
This is what it looked like once we got everything opened up
and all the stuff off the fireplaces.
Look at that 120 year old brick!
Then we had to make some decisions.
We were told by professionals that
the fireplaces were not safe.
Notice the chimney.
So we started from the chimney down
taking this beautiful fireplace down.
It was kind of sad because this was the focal point
of the living room and dining room.



I said I was not going to show any projects in the farmhouse
until I could show you the finished product but this was such a
big thing, I decided to go ahead and show you this!
We were sad about this but it had to be.
We have plans for another fireplace and now that
we made the decision..................................
We are excited!
And just so you know.......
Those 2 fireplaces are not the only ones.
We do have another one in the breakfast room!
It will look different when we get through with it
but hopefully we will not have to tear it down.
We are making progress on the farm house and will be showing more soon!
Did I tell you we are in love with our farmhouse?
Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17
