I recently bought my first home, and I would like to reopen the fireplace that the previous owners closed off. The chimney looks intact on the outside of the house, but the fireplace has had sheetrock put over it, and a hideous built-in desk and cabinets installed over it. It looks as if the fireplace was/will be right in the middle of the desk, where the chair would go. I have no idea what to do first, or how to figure out if it's even possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
