fireplace and chimney

can you remove a fireplace completely without affecting the structure of the chimney? we just bought a house and it has a fireplace in the living room it is connected to an outside wall. would like to remove it and later connect a wood stove to it.

Welcome to the forums!

While you can probably remove the fireplace part that is in the room it would be better to either use an insert or even cover the opening with a steel plate having a hole to accept stove pipe.
