In very old houses, it's important to get the chimney checked and cleaned every few years - especially in old houses.

Look at the size of that fireplace! I love it! You could set up a spit and roast a couple of chickens indoors! The smell would be awesome!

I can't believe it is that time of year again. I hope you exceed your goals from the beginning of the year.

Hi Lisa

Having a safe fireplace and chimney that works well is important, and spending the money to have it properly inspected and cleaned makes a lot of sense. I tell homeowners to add this to the list for fall maintenance along with having their furnacess checked and cleaned.

Great post, Lisa... fireplaces and chimneys may just be one of the most neglected items in houses, I've found.

We use our fireplace here in Destin .  I need to get a load of wood delivered.
