Hello, we are planning to refurb our kitchen, the house is fully detached 1920s and it has this interesting chimney in the left far corner of the kitchen. The actual chimney is in the room adjacent to the kitchen and we are not planning to remove that. However, we would like to remove this particular kitchen chimney 'corner' as you see in the picture attached. Ideally, I would like to remove the extra sustaining walls on the left and right as in pic so we can make the most of the space. We have a small bedroom above the kitchen and there is no chimney on top of this particular 'corner'. There is a visiting hatch. Those big pipes in the corner have also been removed in the bedroom upstairs so the ones in the picture are not going anywhere ... I suspect tiles are hiding a lintel and I may need building regs ... but I am keen to get a skip and knock down most of it myself with some help. What do you think? Have you seen this before? Many thanks!
