Job description

Hi, I will soon be refitting a kitchen which has a closed chimney breast (1m80 wide) with currently a small 70s gas fire in front of it.

I don't know what the original opening was and where there is a lintel... but I would like to open it up so as to either put:

  • an oven and gas hob (about 1m20 wide by 1m90 high opening)


  • an american fridge/freezer (about 1.8m high x 0.9m wide)

The choice will depend on the possible opening.

I would like realistic quotes from experienced tradesmen in this area.

The house is in Chadderton, Oldham. The job would be in April as I don't have yet the keys for the house.

Payment for the job will be on completion, by cheque or cash, and will require an invoice.

Many thanks

John did a great job opening up the chimney breast for a large american fridge freezer and did a couple of other jobs. He is very professional, friendly and is pleasant to talk to and gives advice. I was especially impressed by how hardworking he was despite the main job being quite tiring and dirtying. Would recommend him and use him again.
