Hello there! I need some help with some wood/ carpentry work. I have a gas log fire in the loungeroom. It is installed and has a wood frame securing it in place (please see photos. Although there is a wooden frame in place, there is no panels or coverings yet. I need someone to create a cheap reasonably good temporary solution to cover the frame. The job needs to last up to 5 months. 1 of the ideas I thought of was using plywood or mdf or melamine sheet. Not sure what to use on the corner joints, maybe masking tape??? Any other ideas?? Then either paint with a Dulux designer paint (for example looking like rust) or covering with wall paper. If you are a plasterer and prefer using that it would also be good. You will find photos of the fireplace and wooden frame attached. The other photos are of possible materials I saw at Bunnings Hardware with the price; e.g. one of the paneling options , a Dulux designer paint, and an option of wall paper. I am open to other ideas and suggestions. The earlier the job could be done the better but the latest is by 17 of December. I can help out if you would like. As I am not familiar with prices if you think it is too cheap please make an offer. Thank you for your help. Feel free to call for further information or to discuss price. Kind regards Chris

Hi Barton , am interested in your problem , I am free Friday - happy to put in a bid ex materials - then you advise of the cladding / panels and I will install. As it’s only temporary would suggest mdf or non structural ply and wood trim or aluminium trim( angled edging ) these would be your cheapest options . Let me know if you would like me to make an offer
no Barton.. only timber... plywood, cladding, etc. but not plaster. price will depend on the materials
hi barton... do you need the top framed where the pipe is? we can cover the fire place with any materials you want. it is a matter of what you like. we can charge you for labour only, ie. a day labour for two carpenters with full set of tools and experience.

Hi John, thank you for your reply. As this is a temporary solution we will not box the pipe for now. Do you work with plaster? Would it be a different price to do it with plaster or say plywood? How much would you charge?
