White House Chimney Removal and Roof Repair

Since we are planning a new heating system for the white rental house, we decided to take down the chimney and remove the wood stove. Here, Frank is starting the dismantle.

First blocks off showing the flue liner.

We had to get it down below roof level so we could cover with tarp for the night of rain.

On Thursday we framed the hole and covered with plywood, then put down new paper and shingles.

Notice it has gotten dark just as we finished.

Then we went inside and began removing the blocks and liners there. Quite a mess but glad to be progressing.
