We live in Texas and recently purchased a home built in 1976. We have an indoor fireplace that we never use. Did I mention we live in Texas! We thought about full removal but know that it is a big challenge (the exterior brick is two stories high) and believe it or not, even in Texas a fireplace is a selling point should we ever want to sell our home. We wanted to know if it is possible to close it off on the inside and make it an outdoor fireplace instead? The outdoor portion is on our back patio which we eventually want to cover and make an extra outdoor space.
This sounds like a really innovative idea. Hope you are able to accomplish what you are hoping for. You may find some answers if you look on youtube.
