Fireplace update - Oye!

Talked to Jamie at Woodburners' this morning.  He owns the place. 

He said he thinks that we can use the old flashing unit and make the new pipe fit into it.  Worst case scenario, we have to get a roofer to repair the hole in the roof if they have to use the smaller piping and associated flashhing.

Soooooooo........they will come back at some point.  No idea when, or if I got bumped back to the end of the line. 

They will try to make the old parts work with the new parts.  See, Frank and I don't have to worry about any of that. 

All our parts are old parts.

To reward myself for all my incredible patience during this fireplace thing, I will purchase a pair of stretch pants from HSN. 

Yestrday I rewarded myself with a bag of cheetos.


  1. I hope you keep rewarding yourself in small and not-so-small ways. This is a marathon and you have to keep rewarding yourself for your progress. Fingers crossed that the Fireplace installers return soon and make it all work.

  2. The fireplace saga seems to have a life of its own! I would think there would be flashing out there in the world that would fix the issue. And the story continues ...

  3. So is it delivered and sitting in your living room? That is at least a step forward.

  4. chetos. lol
    I used to eat those by the bagful. Then A corn allergy hit. Love the washer dryers. Can you set your own water levels? top loader, yea! I hate our front loader that takes hours to barely get clothes clean.

  5. Cheetos can cure all evils - a miracle drug 😀


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
