Did you know that chimney sweeps don’t actually dance into your home singing Chim Chim Cher-ee and carrying a chimney brush? I know, I was disappointed too.
Our current house has a fireplace in the main living room. Our old house had a fireplace in the basement. We’ve had access to a fireplace for the entire time we’ve been living on our own, and yet we’ve never actually made a fire because we never got around to making sure the chimney was inspected and cleaned.
That’s all about to change.
After getting the go-ahead from a non-musical chimney sweep, we’re set to use the fireplace just in time for the holidays. Stay tuned, hopefully there’s not a post in the near-future about how we lit our living room on fire.
