Removing the Fireplace
I thought that pulling the fireplace doors off was going to be the most difficult task of all. I thought it was probably bolted in somehow and that years of rust was going to require a fair amount of elbow grease. But after I shined a very bright light on the inside to see what lie ahead, I found that the whole thing was held in place by four hand-twist screws, two on each side, like shown below. Rust wasn't a problem and the doors were off in under two minutes. Big, happy sigh!
