Many would agree on a cozy fireplace to decorate a leisure area of the house to be the ideal decoration as well as a great gathering place for when the occasion arise. What better place to gather around other than the fireplace on a cold night? If your house already has one, then great. If it doesn’t then it might be a good idea to start building your own DIY Fireplace .
Before you can start, you should inspect the chosen area for your fireplace. Make sure that the space is large enough to fit in the fireplace, and of course there is the important matter of the ventilation. Houses with built-in fireplaces would already have built-in chimneys. The topography of the house as well as layout would have been planned from the start to fit these two components.
If you don’t have them, it would take a little more work to gain that cozy gathering spot. First of all you would need to make space for your DIY Fireplace in a selected wall. If you plan to cut out a section of the wall, make sure you have the necessary tools and that the wall would still remain strong even if a large block of it is cut out.
Your DIY Fireplace should have a proper exhaust duct so the smoke would not suffocate you and your family, and since building one would take a lot of time and physical labor, the alternative you could take is sacrificing a window as the fireplace’s sole exit hole. The materials for this smoke-outsourcing device should ideally be clay, but you could always use large PVC or aluminum pipes that aims straight for the open air.
