I love the house! How though could the original fireplace be "too big for the room" if it was built with the room? I live in an old late 1600's house in new England, and we have a fireplace that takes up an entire wall. Large enough to place chairs in on either side:)

You are quite right Nicholas. The proportions were perfect but a new roof space with small chimneys arrived in the 1800's and the large fire place could no longer draw, the room just filled with smoke.
I should have been more specific.
Now that I have revisited this post to answer you I see that the photos have all gone wonky, it may be time to re tweak it.
Lucky you, I know the type of fireplace that you have. Thank you for leaving a comment.
