Another Fireplace Update

The chimney sweep took a few weeks due to the bad condition of our Chimney.  After removing 5 1/2 dead squirrels and cleaning out countless buckets of debris they needed to re-line the furnace side of the chimney.  We had them install a stainless steel liner and cap.

 

The Fireplace side flue stopped 5 feet below the top, apparently it’s common for builders to do this when they run out of material.  Last week we had them finish the liner and fix all the mortar on the outside.  We are now officially ready for a fireplace.

 

I picked up a door from Lowes and installed it this weekend.  It was a pain in the @55 because our damper needed an “alternate install”  involving drilling through the lentil.  After 2 hours it turned out well.
