We bought an amazing lake house complete with sunken conversation pit and traditional wood burning fireplace. We want to level out that room and raise the fireplace as well. I've heard mixed info that a fireplace can't be moved. We are willing to bring in an expert for any technical parts but I could use a little hope that it's possible to address this area of our house.
The pit is right in the middle of the part of he house with the best view and I can't furnish around or even in it very well because it is too small. You can't even see the view when sitting in the pit. Seems it was a poor design choice but one I'm hoping we are not stuck with.
