Can an outdoor brick fireplace be moved?
My neighbor has a beautiful old brick fireplace in her backyard. I know she is thinking about selling her home, and I would love to have that fireplace- just curious- is it possible to move a brick fireplace and relocate it? Thanks!
It may be possible. Consult a brick mason. They would be able to inspect how it is constructed and whether it could be moved successfully. For example, it may be so heavy it would have to be moved in pieces or have a special piece of equipment to do it. It would also have to be placed on a sturdy, concrete foundation or else it will sink into the ground. Another good question to ask the mason is if it would be cheaper to build a new one like the neighbor's fireplace? There are a lot of bricks and mortars that are made to look antique. Sounds like an interesting project. Hope it works out for you. Nancy
