« 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!
