Not sure if this is in the right topic but i'm sure it'll be redirected by the DIY gods.
I have just removed my gas fire and it opens into the old fireplace, or whats left of it. Can see a oblong type metal thing which i take was a back boiler and then just bricks etc. The hearth is not there i take it some demolition and re jigging has been done in the past...anyhow.
I just want to box all the ugly brickwork and stuff off and have the fireplace as a arty farty feature and not use it. I'd be happy with it all flush with the marble surround but a wee alcove would be nice.
Any Ideas or tips on what is best to use (plasterboard etc).
