Well done the man who built my house.

Just had my chimneys swept. Really nice chap. He could have said... "You need them lined, that'll cost yer loads.". But what he actually said was, the bedroom flues are clean and don't need doing (that saved £40) and following a smoke test, the flues are fine don't need lining. So if I have open fires this halves the budget for the fireplaces. The plan at the moment is open fire in the front room, stove / range in the back room. Now I'm thinking I should go for open fireplaces in both rooms and take advantage of the full savings this gives me. Decisions, decisions... but a good problem to have :-)
