We have a horrible 70s style brick feature in our living room which eats into the room space and really dates the room. My OH is reluctant to remove it. There is a gas fire installed into the brick work and we suspect the gas fire in the dining room shares pipes with the one in the living room. What I'd like to do is at least re-shape (and maybe paint) the brick feature in the lounge from an upside down triangle _/ to a more rectangular |_| look.
Is it possible to cut bricks away from a feature like this and how would I do this?
All help much appreciated - Thanks
