Hello all. I’m hoping for some help on an inspection write up about something I find odd but don’t know if it is a deficiency or not. The home owner had an old wood burning fireplace and wanted to update it to look newer. She had a neighbor update it for her and installed a new surround. He left opening on both sides of it and put trim around the open areas. It seems odd to me but I don’t know if it is hazardous in any way. What’s your advice on a write up, if a write up is needed. Picture attached.
