I was talking to a pretty nice guy who came to task on my flooring last week, however he was taking measurements and showing me weird flooring and carpet and swatches.
He asked why I was getting rid of the fireplace, and I told him I could not cover the cost to have it repaired.
He asked if I was willing to sell it, and I had to seriously consider it. I told him if he made a fine offer, and would disassemble it and take it away, it was definitely his. My partner could not honestly believe I may have someone willing to purchase the fireplace. I wasn’t sure if I had a potential buyer, or just some crazy person talking, however I did give him our number. A month later, he was back at our beach property working on the flooring. He asked if I was still interested in getting rid of the fireplace. He had talked to his fiance, and she wanted to see it for herself. I asked if he told her they had to dismantle it and take it away. He said he would tell her that after she made the choice that she wanted it. I wondered if he had any clue whatsoever how tough it was going to be to remove every granite piece and put it back together the way it came apart. I looked into the difficulty of the job. It was going to take a lot of time and effort to get it done. I didn’t even know what I would charge them to remove the fireplace to be entirely honest. I just didn’t want it in my place, so I told him if he took it apart and unaffixed all the bricks, he could have it for free.
