I'm thinking about removing our brick fireplace, replacing the top portion with drywall & the bottom with tile.

I was told that our brick fireplace was structural and that if we wanted to remove it (vs. covering it), we would need to do some framing. I was under the impression that if the brick fireplace was load-bearing or structural, the brick would go up to the ceiling. Not the case here.

Please take a look at the pics and let me know what you think.
