Hi, Yes it is possible not a cheap job to do firstly it maked a lot of mess, also part of the ceiling over both chimneys will have to come down to renforce under the bedroom chimneys wiyh out this the bedroom fire places could land up in your living room good luck.Find someone who knows what they are doing and tells you they need to renforce underside of bedroom chimney.

hi,you will find it very difficult just to take out the 2 chimney breasts on ground floor only.the reason being is because they have to be supportted by steal beams and they have to go on surpporting walls.you will not be able to use gallow brackets either .the best solution is get a structual engineer round and let him give you calulations and advise.many thanks nick
