  2. 2. Proper Fireplace Construction Whether you are ripping out your old fireplace or adding one into your home for the first time, there is a lot to know about fireplace construction. The first thing is, depending upon where you live, you may need to speak with your town for any possible permits that you may need.
  3. 3. You could be facing a big fine If your town requires a permit for this type of work and you are caught building a fireplace without it, you could be facing a big fine. Work permits are not that much money and you just simply place it in the front window of your house so everyone knows that you applied for the proper papers.
  4. 4. Local fireplace construction regulations You will also want to check and see if there are any local fireplace construction regulations or inspections required. In most areas you may find that none of that is needed but it is better to be safe than sorry.
  5. 5. Paperwork done This is especially the case if you plan on selling the home as an inspection report may be needed and if so, you will want to have that. Once you get all of the needed paperwork done, it is time to start your fireplace construction and hopefully you have done it before. But if not, there are things you can do to help you get through it.
  6. 6. How To Build One Everyone can pretty much draw out the basic shape of a fireplace and if you are simply doing the typical design for your fireplace construction job, then you are off to a good start. Another good start would be if you have cut and laid brick before. If not, then this is something that you should get help with because if it is not done properly, it can become a complete mess and look like a big waste of money. You do not want this happening to you so if you do not know of anyone to help, start researching.
  7. 7. Several books There are several books that can be found on home remodeling and fireplace construction. These are actually excellent books to have on hand as you never know when something may come up that you have to attend to. If you cannot find any books that can help you, you can always turn to the Internet for tips and hints on how to go about fireplace construction like a professional. It is important to take your time with projects like this because there are no cutting corners when it comes to fireplace construction.
