    It growls. Irritated that you guessed so easily, but not surprised. "It seems the mouse has a brain to go with its brawn." The crested head lowers so the hot breath is again searing at your face. "First was luck, let's try a second. The wave, over a wave, a strange thing I saw. Through-wrought, and wonderful ornate: a wonder on the waves, water become bone."

A small abandoned chapel in France. Love this photo, especially the light shining through the window!

So..how did old chimney work? Why were there three hearth-looking holes? Did fires on three floors share the same chimney? That doesn't sound right. Anyone know?

  • Kim Taylor

    They still make them this way....depending on the size of the chimney a fire on lower levels will force the smoke all the way up as long as the upper one flumes are open.

  • Dori Young

    I want to do this. Been thinking about possible designs to keep smoke out of upper floors. I showed this to my husband. His response... "That's probably why the house burned down." Lol

    Your husband is awesome.

    Bottom one is in the basement and is something other than a hearth, maybe part of a root cellar. Middle goes the full depth of the bricks and the flue is behind the shallow hearth on the second floor. There is no reason this wouldn't work. Many older homes have them.

  • Bobbi Ward

    Yes the one on the bottom I would think is in the cellar and not a fireplace. The ceiling would be very low. And perhaps at one time was all stone and patched with bricks later.
