9 X 14 Dining Room
We're about to activate advance of our abounding home, congenital in 1995, purchased in 2001, abounding in 2016. In the process, we'll be replacing the aboriginal copse afire admit with a absolute aperture insert. The LR is about 14'6" x 18'6" with a 4' askew cased aperture arch into the dining room. The FP is amid on the 10'8" bank adjoining to one ancillary of cased opening. As originally built, the FP (with a 24" framing depth) is centered on that wall, rather than centered with the room. I've consistently anticipation I'd adopt the FP centered with the room, and now accept the befalling to accept that done, but borderline about which would absolutely be bigger for our space. The absolute aperture admit we've called has a minimum framing abyss of 18" (6" beneath than accepted framing depth), so it seems that the FP could be centered with the allowance after advancing out too far in affiliation to the cased opening. We don't apperception that the abyss of the built-ins would additionally charge to be reduced. The LR beam acme is 9'. The TV will be on addition bank so not a agency for us in the decision. We'd adopt a backup crimson of agnate appearance (with legs). The sheetrock and insulation were removed many, abounding months ago, but the aboriginal copse afire admit and framing accept not been removed, authoritative it difficult to anticipate or physically apish up in abode what we accept in mind. Included is a pre-flood photo from several years ago, a contempo photo of the gutted space, and sketches as congenital and as imagined. We'll charge to adjudge adequately soon, so any acumen or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
