HISTORIC CHIMNEY RESTORATION IN WOODSTOCK, VT
Located in the historic section of downtown Woodstock, VT, this 200-plus-year-old home was in need of some updating. Our client wanted to convert his back-to-back fireplaces, which used vent-free gas logs, into one see-through, wood burning fireplace. Neither fireplace had a chimney liner, and during the last renovation both fireplaces had been sealed off at the top and bottom. Chimney Savers’ expert technicians demolished the back wall of the fireplaces to connect them into one see-through fireplace. They then installed two custom stainless-steel chimney liners—with the help of a crane—to safely vent the new fireplace. Now a single fire can be enjoyed in both the dining room and living room!
