Chimney

100_2110

Our biggest accomplishment for today was getting the chimney fixed.  High winds in early spring had blown down the chimney and as I have said it is starting to get cool at night here in Floyd.  My brother-in-law came over to help us fix it.  We were very blessed to find this aluminum pipe down at the barn and it just fit perfectly over the stainless steel pipe that fits in the brick part of the chimney.  This all sounds complicated and in some ways it is.  The original chimney( as you can tell) is very old and was not useable.  We had to line it with a stainless steel pipe which was not tall enough.  The chimney must be above the ridgeline of the house or it will not draw.  Every year we have to replace the pipes that extend on above the ridgeline.  Hopefully this won’t happen now as aluminum does not rust.  Therefore it should last much longer.  I certainly pray so.  George was very glad to get this off his to-do list.   Today is busy with school and getting ready for church tonight.  Hope everyone has a great day.  God Bless.
