Understanding the Complexity of House Raising Services with FirePlace Preservation in Brisbane

Raising a house with a fireplace requires a nuanced approach that takes into account the structural integrity of the chimney, the impact on the overall house elevation, and the preservation of the fireplace’s functionality and aesthetics in Brisbane. Our expert House Raising Services with Fireplace Preservation in the Brisbane area help identify these complexities. We possess the knowledge and experience to carefully assess these factors, ensuring a seamless and successful house lifting process, especially in the context of renovation projects. Raising a house with a fireplace requires careful consideration in assessing all options available.  There are numerous options to consider such as refounding the chimney on steel posts, spanning out the chimney on structural steel, and creating a second fireplace on the lower level. Each of these options presents unique benefits for enhancing their living spaces.


Refounding the Chimney on Steel Posts for Effective House Raising

Refounding the chimney on steel posts is a popular option when raising a house with a chimney. This method involves lifting the house and providing a new foundation for the chimney using steel posts. By refounding the chimney on steel posts, homeowners can ensure the stability and safety of the chimney during and after the elevation process. With a carefully thought out design plan the end result usually sees the new steel columns encapsulated in the walls or cupboard beneath the chimney. This option is quite often the most economical and can be practical with careful planning and care taken at the beginning of the project as part of the design.

Spanning Out the Chimney on Structural Steel: A Key to Fireplace Preservation

Spanning out the chimney on structural steel is another viable option for raising a house with a chimney. Structural steel provides the necessary support to distribute the weight of the chimney, offering a reliable solution for maintaining the chimney’s integrity during the lifting process and as part of the final construction solution. By using structural steel, homeowners are able to take advantage of all the space available under the house. This is particularly useful when considering that most fireplaces are centrally located, allowing the chimney supports to be hidden within adjacent walls makes it incredibly valuable to the house raising objectives.

Creating a Second Fireplace to the Lower Level during House Raising

Introducing a second fireplace to the lower level of the house is an innovative option that adds both functionality and aesthetic value. Beneath many old Queenslanders that have chimneys, it’s not uncommon to see old boilers at the base of these chimneys. We can’t maintain or preserve the old boilers, but we can convert them to a lower level fireplace, with mantel and hearth. By creating a second fireplace, homeowners can enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a fireplace on multiple levels, contributing to a cozy and inviting atmosphere throughout the house and most importantly tieing the new with the old. The technique in delivering this product is very unique and there are a couple of tricks to the trade. One, we’re able to build a new fireplace from the ground up, while the house is overhead and in doing so we connect the new fireplace into the flue of the chimney by utilising the old flu that connected the boiler. Secondly, once constructed we carefully connect the fireplace above to the one below by lowering the house onto wet mortar and letting the mortar set. The end result is two beautifully connected fireplaces ready to be used.

Sliding a House with a Fireplace: Innovative Preservation Techniques

Sliding a house with a fireplace is an ingenious method that allows for the preservation of the existing structure while allowing the house to be positioned on the lot. This technique involves carefully shifting the entire house, including the chimney and fireplace, horizontally before initiating the raising process. By sliding the house, homeowners can maintain the alignment of the chimney, ensuring minimal disturbance to these integral components of the home.


Raising the House and Protecting the Fireplace: Best Practices

Raising a house while protecting the fireplace demands meticulous planning and execution. Specialised bracing and support systems are employed to safeguard the fireplace and chimney during the elevation process. This approach ensures that the fireplace remains structurally sound and intact as the house is raised, minimising the risk of damage and preserving the functionality and aesthetic appeal of the fireplace.
