I was talking to a gentleman who came to work on my flooring last week.
The guy was taking measurements and showing me unusual flooring and carpet and swatches.
He asked why I was getting rid of the fireplace, and I told him I could not afford to have it worked on. He asked if I was willing to sell it, and I thought about it… I told him if he made a fantastic offer, and would disassemble it and take it away, it was his entirely. My husband could not easily believe that I may have someone willing to purchase the fireplace. I wasn’t sure if I had a potential buyer, or just someone making small talk. Of course, I did supply him with our phone number. A month later, he was back at our lake dwelling working on the flooring. He asked if I was still interested in getting rid of the fireplace. He had talked to his husband, and he wanted to see it. I asked if he told the guy that they had to dismantle it and take it away. He said he would tell him about that after he decided he wanted it. I wondered if he had any clue in the slightest how taxing it was going to be to remove every brick and put it back together the way it came apart. I looked into the whole challenge of the task. It was going to take a lot of time and a lot of energy to get it accomplished. I didn’t even recognize what I would charge them to remove the fireplace. I just didn’t want it in my dwelling, so I told him if he took it apart and removed all the bricks, he could have it for absolutely nothing.
