Basement Cinderblock Furnace


Hey all, Im new to this forum and very anxious to get much needed help!! My house is an old style house is the style during the war with the shower in basement and everything. we have a concrete block furnace the runs from basement all the way to the upstairs. What I want to do is get rid of it and I am just curious to know if this would be any structural purpose or is the house built around it. It looks like it because none of the floor joists are tied into it and theblock is solid 4inch concrete hollow block if this makes sence. Can I get into ripping this thing apart ??

Thanks hopefully you can understand what Im trying to say.

Shawn

Basement Cinderblock Furnace


I think that is just a concrete block partition built around the furnce and is not a structural element.- Sort of like basement nathroom or shower, but with a different purpose. It sure is good it is not wood walls.
