DIY Chimney Boring - Brickwork/experienced DIY question
    #754290 - 10/22/14 05:03 AM (2 years, 10 months ago)

I see no reason why in an old 1940's style house my chimney should be formed of anything but uniform brick thickness for the front and sides of the stack.

I have to drill into the chimney upstairs for venting. But I'd rather drill in from the side so it'll be piss easy to hide when the equipment is put away or I leave with a plastic vent cover.

Does anyone know a single reason from real experience why it wouldn't be just as thick from the side (a brick width in from the corner) as from the front centre of the stack?

I'm renting a place with no inspections and the room has never had a fireplace it's just the stack from a fire that used to be in the downstairs room (that I can't use for exposure).

It'd make it much easier to both get my deposit back and hide the alteration if it wasn't immediately obvious there'd been a modification when one entered the room..and so would be on the side furthest from the door.

It'd be foolish to enact without fishing for advice. About a week away from doing this :smile:

sounds like a BAD IDEA to ME!!!!


How is that ever gonna get fixed after you put a hole in the side?


and what if someone does have fire when you move out... they risk lighting the whole house up and or getting Co2 poisoning

Yeah, definitely sketchy (at best), and dangerous/destructive to others. If the fireplace no longer exists, the chimney will probably be sealed closed anyway, so you wouldn't get any benefit from trying to vent through it to fresh air...
