Chimney Hole Cut in Roof

Vance was on site on Thursday to cut and frame the hole for the wood stove chimney that will be added in the next week or so. He worked from under the eaves to remove the rafters, insulation and sheeting before framing the new hole. The current plan has the mason on site next weekend to do the chimney work. A cast stone veneer will be added once the concrete block chimney is completed. We're planning to use a wood stove in the basement as supplemental heat. We've talked with a number of people who have stoves in their basements and allow the heat to warm the floors overhead and to rise up the stairways to feed the upper floors. With our central staircase, we should see some good air movement to help keep the heating bills low and let us use the abundant wood we have available.
