So months ago a shared with you my disdain for my leaky, ugo fireplace.
It is amazing what a coat of paint can do! Oh, and I also had carpet installed instead of the gross white cement floor. It was not conducive to a baby learning to walk...
The fireplace itself is still drafty, even after having a new cap installed, and the entire exterior wrapped in vinyl siding... (by the way, I really did not want to wrap it in vinyl, due to how bad that stuff is for the environment, but you win some, you loose some).
Thanks for all of the advice!
