cooker in chiminey opening

Postby lee58uk » Thu Jul 31, 2008 3:41 pm

Hi can anyone tell me if this will work or has been done?, in my kitchen we have a large fire place , could we open it up and fit a cooker inside it and have a extract fan blowing up the old chiminey? and may be use solid pipe as a flue?

Simply Build It

Some friends of mine have done exactly what you propose. I don't know about the flue though. I can ask but hey are in the States for a couple of weeks....
The work was done as part of a complete rebuild to the property.

In isolation I would imagine it would be a sensible to use a duct pipe as a 'flue'. Personally I'd call it the vent from the extractor hood. Use of words like 'flue ' tend to make BCO's nervous.....
