Our Chimney is Back Up on the Roof!

If you recall,

the week of Thanksgiving

our chimney blew off the roof

during a storm.

This was a sorry sight.


given the frequent snowstorms this winter,

our contractor was unable to replace the chimney until

a couple of weeks ago.

In mid February the weather finally broke

and the men from Koontz Construction

began work.

They had found that the old chimney was not sealed

properly and there was water damage.

Thus, the first job was to replace the damaged roofing.

They cleared out the old chimney and salvaged

the undamaged vinyl siding.

The new chimney flue is ready for installation.

More chimney parts.

It's coming together.

Day three and the siding is going on.

This old chair didn't survive the chimney

falling on it.

Fortunately, I had removed the table

earlier in the fall as we were using it

for tailgating or it too would have been


The workers have gone and have cleaned up their mess.

And the chimney is back where it belongs.

At last.

Thanks, Josh and crew!

It's beautiful, and I'm sure your men put it on

better than it was on before.

I'm so glad you have your chimney.

I'm curious.
Now that your chimney is intact,
has your temperature soared to the 60's?

But of course. Followed by another nasty storm last night with high winds and tornado warnings.

Fortunately, the chimney is still where it belongs.
