Stonemason question


Recommended Posts

Hi all


We have a limestone fireplace. It's one with a 'keystone' effect on it. We're looking at putting a wood burning inset fire into the fireplace. Whilst we have found stoves that will fit, the stove that we really want is 2mm too high because of this 'keystone'.


Is there such a thing as a stonemason that would come out and carve/machine a centimetre off the bottom of the limestone so that the fire that we really want would fit?


The fireplace cannot be removed from its position as it is cemented/glued together as well as cemented/glued to the wall.


Many thanks in advance.

Many thanks for the answers and all the PM's. There is no way that I would even consider tackling it myself. One small slip and my mistake will be prominently displayed for many years.


A bit (lot) more Googling may have found me someone. I'll give him a bell and see if it's the type of work that he does.
