Chim Chiminey! Chim Chiminey!

"Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky

As lucky can be
"

After weeks of temperatures with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s and a wind chill that is significantly cooler, Chad and I have really wanted to build a fire. However, we knew we wanted to have the chimney cleaned first. Lucky to us, Chad still receives most of his Social Club e-mails from college. And, one of the members just began "chimney sweeping." So, Chad called him up and he came out yesterday. He did a great job, and, most importantly everything was still clean when he left. (No soot or ashes on the floor) The job was kind of smelly, but we kept the back and front door open, and the smell did not stay. Now we are very excited to build our first fire in our house...I just need some graham crackers, marshmallows, and hershey's chocolate to go with it!!!!

Beginning the job! This is what potentially could have been a big mess. But, it wasn't!We've never seen a chimney sweeper do his job before, so we did enjoy watching all of the steps, and wondering how we could possibly do this:
If you need your chimney cleaned....Call Shane!
