Move a Fireplace

I am redoing my fireplace surround, hearth, and mantel. I just removed all the old stone from the entire fireplace and have realized that the fireplace, that has a patio door on either side, is not evenly spaced between the doors. Does anyone know a way to shift it over like a 1/2 inch? Is this possible or would this mess up the flue pipe?

Unless it is a self contained unit like a Heat-a-lator with a steel pipe flue it can't be moved without serious damage or rebuild. The best solution would be to disguise the difference in the surround. A quarter inch on each side would not be noticeable.
