We currently have a log burner sitting in fireplace type opening,the trouble we are having is that the wall around the log burner is of plaster board and skimmed with plaster but the intense heat is causing the plaster to crack and crumble away.my wife has an idea of enlarging slightly the opening the fire sits in,then replace the plasterboard wall and the insides around the log burner with stonework.i don't think the chimney is structural,the log burners chimney is encased in concrete type material
