My husband and I moved into the house that we are living in now about four years ago.
The thing that attracted us the most to this house was the fact that it came with a lot of property. My husband loves to farm, and he wanted as much room as possible to do that. We also wanted to be able to supply ourselves with our own firewood off of our land instead of having to buy it from someone else. We did not realize that the fireplace in the house did not work well. My husband said that he thought the chimney just needed to be cleaned out, but it turns out that there were some other issues with the old fireplace. We could not afford to get it fixed up the way we wanted when we moved into the house, so we decided to wait on it and save money to be able to fix it up nicely in the future. Well, we kind of just put it off for about three and a half years. We finally decided this fall that we wanted to fix up our fireplace. We hired a friend to come over and help us fix our fireplace. It turned out very nicely. I love the coloring of it now. It makes our house super cozy as well. I cannot believe how much warmer the house is now that we have the fireplace working. I actually had to turn our furnace off completely the other day because it was so warm from the fireplace.
