Attaching some pics of the prep for the install......hope this works....first time posting pics. I almost hate to tear this fireplace apart but it's worth it. Photo one (wherever it shows up) is the original. Next photos show slow slow taking apart of the trim. House is 80 years old. I learned from rebuilding casement window frames that the trim splits like a knife through hot butter. Last photo has some of the tile lined up to see what it will look like. Planning to install the Hamptin insert tomorrow. It will be a very tight fit but WILL work. Of course, all the artistes in the family showed up today to "assist". I rebuilt the balcony this year and reshingled the garage but this is the project that's turning my crank.
