However, just for a few months, it's an integral part of our home.
A bit rustic, it seems to fit in well. We have been here 21 years (how did that happen) and the fire was here
when we bought the house.
(oops the chimney looks a bit wonky - sorry, must be my great photography in action!)
Not sure how long it was here before. It's a fair age anyhow.
Over the years we have installed a new chimney, but that's all.
I think it will be here for a few years to come.
Do you have a fireplace where you are?
cheers for now
