« Part 1: The Story So Far Part 2 of Kitchen Remodel series Part 3: Putting it back together »

And then we got to that mysterious box in the corner: The lower part of the chimney. We knocked the plaster and button board off, revealed a cement base and a metal chimney. Opening the access hatch on the base showed a residue that suggested at some point in this 1947 cottage there had been a wood or coal stove. So suddenly we weren’t sure how heavy that metal chimney was. So I looked at Charlene, said “no problem, we’ll sawzall that sucker outta there and I’ll catch it!”

She looked at me and raised an eyebrow.

I went upstairs, dug through the remnants of a long previous life, pulled out some climbing gear, and rigged up for a descent braked with Munter hitches:

We let that sit for a day, and then with a deep breath, we lowered the base. Not too bad, so we took another deep breath, and lowered the chimney. Warning: video contains mild profanity:

Yep. Sucker is heavy.

It looks like moving the chimney wasn’t all as easy as you expected it to be, but good thing that that’s done and dusted hey? Now you can get down to the actual business of getting everything touched up! Good Luck!

rsa, et Nike Air Max Sale nous ????? ????? d?mes camper, chaussure adidas pas cher afin de réparer un des patins, que adidas outlet le Pandora Store choc avait Nike Online Store endommagé.


Je fis cuire Nike Roshe Run le souper, fondre Kobe Shoes Nike de la glace pour cheap nike air max le café, et donnai günstige nike schuhe aux chiens nfl store leur patée, tandis que Cheap True Religion Jeans Lon Jordan Shoes Air travaillait au ugg factory outlet patin. Après quoi, nous réun?mes une provision louboutin heels de suivre un envoi branches Boutique Ugg mortes, pour Discount Ray Ban Sunglasses le Doudoune Moncler Femme Pas Cher feu Yeezy Boost Sale Online de la nuit, et, assis sur nos couvertures, nous f?mes sécher devant la Nike Shoes Online flamme Air max dam nos mocassins Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet fumants, piqués UGG Boots Cheap sur des batons, tout en allumant Adidas Superstar Sale Online notre pipe vespérale.


Ce fut Lon qui, à br?le-pourpoint, me Nike Air Max Cheap demanda Moncler Jackets Discount Marketplace :


— Tu ne UGG BOOTS FOR WOMEN la connaissais pas ?


Je fis de nike shoes la moncler jacket sale tête un signe négatif.


— Tu air force one pas cher as remarqué, sans doute, le Adidas Originals Sale flamboiement doré Pandora Outlet Store de sa Canada goose dam chevelure, l’éclat Nike Store de ses prada outlet yeux et nike air jordan pas cher la fra?cheur merveilleuse de sa botas de futbol peau. Elle donne Doudoune Moncler Site Officiel l’impression Nike Air Shoes de la cheap uggs for women première New Nike Shoes lueur, zapatillas nike baratas chaude et rosée, des rayons de Pandora Official Website l’aurore. D’où Nike Huarache Womens Cheap le Ugg Outlet Online Store nom qui Cheap Nike Free Run lui a été donné, de Adidas Shoes Discount Marketplace ? Braise d’Or ?. canada goose jackets on sale Jamais, rappelle-toi, tu Chaussure Nike Air Max Pas Cher n’as entendu Nike Polo Sale parler d’elle Nike Outlet Store ?


Je m’effor?ai Air Max 90 de réveiller mes souvenirs, qui demeurèrent confus et nébuleux. Official NHL Jerseys Ce Toms Factory Outlet nom Hugo Boss Sale ne m’était pas Zapatillas Nike Air Max Baratas tout à Nike joggesko fait inconnu, et pourtant Ugg boots Sale il ne Cheap Real Jordans m’apprenait rien de huarache sneakers précis.


— Braise d’Or, Ugg Pas Cher En France Braise nike tn pas cher d’Or… dis-je, Pandora Outlet enfin, Yeezy Shoes Discount Marketplace cela coach factory outlet online ressemble à TOMS OUTLET un nom de danseuse.


Lon secoua ADIDAS NMD SALE ON LINE la tête.


Nike Factory Store Tu The official UGG n’y es pas. Pas du Adidas Neo Discount Sale tout Stone Island Outlet ! fitflops sale uk C’était une femme… je ne sais Moncler Sale pas comment dire…


— Mais pourquoi parles-tu d’elle au passé, comme Cheap Toms Outlet Store si elle était Cheap True Religion Jeans morte ?


Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens à cause des ténèbres Vans Black Sneakers qui Nike Shox Cheap se sont étendues sur Nike Factory Outlet son ame Nike Air Sneakers et qui sont l’égal de la TOMS For Sale mort. Yeezy Men La Braise Official Toms Shoes Outlet d’Or que newest lebron shoes j’ai connue, que tout Dawson a pandora beads connue, womens nike air max n’est retro jordans for cheap plus de ce monde. Nike Shoes Sale Store Rien Cheap Air Max ne subsiste, longchamp bags on sale en la pauvre Louboutin Wedding Shoes folle Nike Roshe Run Sale que nous avons vue hier Cheap Nike Air Huarache soir, de l’ancienne Air Max Femme Braise d’Or.


— Et Dave Jordan Shoes For Cheap ? demandai-je.


— Dave avait Michael Kors Clearance construit Nike Air Women cette cabane, Toms Outlet Online pour elle et TOMS STORE pour lui. Lui TOMS SHOES OUTLET est mort. Elle l’attend là, Descuentos Nike toujours, car elle n’est canada goose jacket outlet pas Cheap Toms Shoes Outlet bien persuadée Adidas Yeezy Cheap qu’il ne Timberland Outlet soit plus. Mais Nike Air Max Goedkoop qui peut nike air sonder le Adidas Soccer Cleats Cheap tréfonds d’une vans shoe store ame perdue ? Peut-être Canada Goose Online Store croit-elle Canada Goose Outlet vraiment Pandora Store Sale qu’il n’est pas mort. ?????? ????? Ce Ugg Pas Cher Femme qui est certain, c’est qu’elle l’attend dans Adidas Originals Stan Smith cette Cheap Michael Kors Tote Bag cabane qu’il a christian louboutin outlet construite. Mais Cheap Air Max Trainers comment ressusciter ceux qui ne sont plus ? Je n’ai pas Air Max Pas Cher voulu la chagriner Boty Nike Air et Nike Soccer Cleats Boots j’ai Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 For Sale dit Cheap Nike Huarache comme Pandora Store elle. Et, Scarpe Air Max si chaussure basket homme Dave avait Discount Air Max soudain apparu, le plus Soccer Boots Outlet nike étonné, pour s?r, scarpe nike e?t été moi.


— Je Canada Goose Outlet ne comprends goutte à ton histoire. Christian Louboutin Heels Prends-la par le Hogan Outlet début et nike sneakers conte-moi Uggs For Cheap cela.


Lon Moncler Outlet Online Mac Fane parla ainsi Bottes Ugg Femme Pas Cher :


Nike Tn Requin Pas Cher Victor Chauvet était Cheap Michael Kors un ancien Fran?ais, New Air Max 2017Air Max Sneakers dans Coach Bags On Sale le Nike Shox discount Sale Midi de la France. Il vint en Adidas NMD For Sale Californie, à l’époque nike jordan shoes de Reebok Outlet Store la ruée vers l’or. Pandora Style Beads Non pas pour Nike Air Damen chercher de l’or, mais pour Discount TOMS y mettre du soleil Adidas Originals Superstar en Jordan Sneakers For Sale bouteilles. Nike Air 90 Je Scarpe Nike Scontate veux dire qu’il 23 IS BACK Store était asics sko vigneron reebok running shoes de son métier, Adidas Superstar et Billige Nike Sko qu’il fabriquait chaussures nike pas cher et adidas store débitait ugg clearance du vin. De Californie, il Nike Air Pas Cher suivit Air max levn? la Cheap Louboutin Heels course à l’or jusqu’en Alaska, où elle Nike Shoes Discount Marketplace s’était transportée, Chaussure Air Max et fut Jordan Store un des Cheap Retro Jordans For Sale premiers qui arrivèrent sur Discount Christian Louboutin Shoes les Mens Nike Air Max bords du Yukon. nike sportschuhe On cheap uggs le vit également, voilà douze ans, Moncler Outlet Store sur nike sb stefan janoski ceux Air Nike du toms shoes outlet Porcupine. Il ravitailla en Uggs Pas Cher Soldes boisson d’immenses territoires. Victor Chauvet était bon catholique et n’aimait Michael Kors Outlet que deux choses au monde new jordan releases : Michael Kors le Nike Outlet vin, tous les vins, et la femme, converse store une Chaussure Nike Pas Cher seule femme, la sienne, qui Nike Pas Cher Femme fut Air Jordan Retro Sale la ugg store mère de Marie Chauvet.


Je ne Nike Air Jordan 11 pus, ici, m’empêcher Boost Yeezy Sale On Line de nike schuhe günstig pester tout haut pandora jewelry store contre Air Max Kopen ce mauvais nike mercurial soccer cleats conteur, que je Negozi Pandora payais UGGS Outlet deux cent cinquante dollars new pandora charms par Coach Outlet Store Online mois, UGGS For Women et qui Cheap Michael Kors Handbags battait la campagne.


— Eh bien Zapatillas Air Max quoi ? Original Ugg Boots demanda Doudoune Moncler Pas Cher Lon. zapatos de futbol nike Pourquoi Yeezy Black grognes-tu Nike Air Huarache For Sale ?
