Snakes and Ladders
Today if you don't mind I'd like to show you some installation photos.
When I received my estimates for my stove I could hardly believe how much it was going to cost but the more I researched what needed to be done the more I realised that my quote was pretty good!
Externally, my rather unusual chimney pot had to be taken off - if it broke I was told I wouldn't be able to have an exact replacement as they had never seen a chimney pot like it....(apart from all the other old houses in the road that still have them)
Once it was off the stainless steel liner was pushed down my chimney - I was warned about a possible soot fall - I only had a little one!
I was very impressed how the men had their own Hoover - apparently soot ruins hoovers and my soot fall was quickly dealt with.
Once the liner was in place and the stove positioned a plate was fitted, after it was cut to size; then the gaps around the liner was filled, finally cementing my chimney pot back with an additional cap.
I will show you my stove another time as I was rather disappointed with my photos (bad/failing light)
