Hi, I have a 3 sided fire place between my living and dinning room but it just sits there! I want to open the top and ad a shelf to it but don't know how to find out where the fire places canal locate it, how I can find out what is inside the wall without opening it?

You will likely have to open it. I cannot see enough from your photos, but you might be able to look in the attic and see what kind of duct work there is and where it runs. There are direct vent fireplaces that use a pretty small duct. However if it is masonry it would be more complicated and larger. Rigid also make a pretty good snake camera that can go through a 3/4" hole. You could poke a small hole in the wall behind the art work and see what is in there.

That's a great idea, thanks. May be would work with plumbers mirror, I think it's easier and cheaper! Have to look at both options.
Thanks
