A brick wall fireplace takes some time to build. You have to plan the fireplace, install the hardening brick – which is usually more heat resistant and a higher grade than the outer brick, and then build the fireplace yourself. Usually, it is a job for a trained mason, but someone with sufficient skills building can try to build a self.
What tools do you need?
Building a brick wall fireplace needs brick, a masonry and concrete or mortar. You should also use a level to make sure each brick is completely level as you place each one. Once even a brick is something of, it threatens the entire structure. Many people will also drive a string over the fireplace when building each level as a guide. This makes the fireplace more even and easier to build. A brick wall fireplace first designed using a pen and paper or design software. It can be built into a concrete or wall by cutting into the concrete and removing the blocks, then stacking the bricks along the inside. It can also be built in front of a wall, simply by stacking the blocks along the floor and up the wall.
