A very exciting day has made its way to Blog BS5. I have finally got to the installation point for a wood burner here in the house.
The house is about 115 years old, so naturally it has a chimney, and today after a decade of residence I stuck my head up there and took a look. There it was, quietly and reliably intact, ready to take a new lining for many a happy fire to come.
Here are some images of the day 1 install. There is solid wood, slate, iron, brick, render, cement, history, fascination and all manner of conflagratory potential.
More updates on day 2, and at the weekend, maybe even a real fire movie.
