Construction finally began in January 2016 to reline both chimneys and open all four fireplaces.
This is a picture of the fireplace in the living room under construction. The blackened brick is evidence that this fireplace was used more than the others in the house.
This is the bladder and 1 inch spacer that was used to reline the chimneys.
This is a picture of the work to restore the walls of the fireplace in our bedroom.
This is the finished version of the fireplace in the living room---the "after" picture of the photo on the left.
