New Chimney

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

Just guessing here, but maybe the cellar location is more centralized and the cellar stairs are closer, and the heat will travel to the upper living areas better. Maybe?
But you really did a beautiful job Jack. Next time you're in new England, I have an ugly SS chimney, that could use an upgrade. :D
I got coal in my Christmas stocking. (Yey!)

Where's Lightning Lee ....would somebody righten that photo so I can see what I am lookin at ?
Chimney looks good. How can you tell it has a round liner ??
Be great if we can get a full shot of the chimney / house where we could see the peak.
I will be real curious how well new chimney drafts.
I hear one guy in NE Ohio close to Lake Erie has round masonry liner, draft so good
will suck ur hat up chimney.
My masonry chimney is not quite that high and drafts just so so.
Maybe I need another three or four feet higher.

The jury is still out on Round vs. square flues .Here in the coal regions 99 percent of e F M stokers are running on 8 by 8 square flues .Many of the Lehigh Patch homes have a Central Chimney With No Flues .Work great .These homes were built in 1860s for the Lehigh miners . I have fixed a few chimneys in these homes an looking at the chimneys in the Attic the Brickwork was fine .Obviously after 150 years the chimney top needed fixing .Jack
