    We're planning to take a wall down between the lounge and dining room and after getting a few quotes I wanted to turn to the wisdom of NSC to see if they are good / fair or awful. How much should this cost?

    • Remove non load bearing chimey breast from 1st floor bedroom
    • Remove non load bearing chimney breast from ground floor dining room and lounge
    • Knock through wall and insert a steel to create an archway (steel not hidden in ceiling)
    • Plastering
    • Make good floor (to be covered)


    Any advice is welcome, thanks in advance

      What's the difference between a chimey breast and a chimney breast? I'm hoping it's a huge one.

      EDIT: Of course not the breast. Average size is fine.

      What about the chimney? You can't leave that up if the breasts (snigger) are being removed.
      Exiled amongst the red and white, at the wrong end of the A/M27. (P)

      I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.........Time to die.

      Can recommend @CAPTAIN GREALISH who has done work at mine and at a friends. Having not seen CG's post, I would have said you were looking close to £5k - quite a lot of demolitions there, carting away, making good etc.

      I reckon you could be! Then again, I always err on the side of caution, clients much happier with me if it turns out cheaper rather than more expensive...

      You'll probably need to speak to Building Control if you are forming an opening requiring a steel.
