Chimney woe

Pretty chimneys, no?  Don't you think they go with the style of the house?  They'll be covered at some point.  The problem is that they don't draw.  The one on the left is for the fireplace, and on the right is for the vent for the stove.  

We think they don't draw because the material they used to plug the chimney around the tubes, they laid it flat.  

Smoke doesn't draw well through a flat surface, I believe.  You can kind of see it in the photo below which was taken up the chimney.

Meeting tomorrow with the lot of them.  I am not looking forward to it in the least.

More than that, I am not looking forward to not having a fireplace.  I already don't have the bread oven.

Put them in a closed room with the fire running in the chimney. Let them see what they have done ;)
