    Put one in without a permit and you will be spending the money a second time when you sell it and have to tear it out.

    Your homeowners fire insurance will not readily hand over a check if it starts a chimney fire.

     


    Check the zoning codes to make sure that it affects homeowners. If it does, change the law. That said, people are freezing to death in their own homes and some people think it is sad that they only had one life to give to their county council and HOA. There was one guy that expressed dissatisfaction that other people know how to sharpen tools, such self-reliance seems to be heresy.

    Wood/coal fireplaces are not allowed in most developed urban areas anymore.

    Reason........ Air pollution.

     

     

    Contractors can't build them in new homes,  but a homeowner can always remodel. 

     

    That the rules require people to freeze to death in their own homes, those rules should be defied.

    Would you rather be stuck in a house with no electricity during a record setting snow storm chopping firewood, trying to survive.  Or boarding a flight to Cancun with the family.  I know which one I would choose.

     

    We used to get by with a roaring fire in the fireplace, we had antique kerosene lanterns, candles, and batteries too.

     

    I wish that Cruz had flown to Washington D.C. to do some arm twisting of bureaucrats at FEMA, Civil Defense, and Homeland Security to step up. It would have been better for Texas, better for the USA, and there would not have been the opportunity for the communists to swoop in as saviors of the abandoned little guy.

  4. When I grew up almost all homes had a fireplace. Alot of apartments had fireplaces too. Most people kept enough seasoned firewood to get through a winter storm, it was expected that powerlines would go down for a few hours to a few days depending on the severity of the storm.

     

    These days most homes dont have a fireplace. Often zoning codes dont allow them in new construction,  but this winter storm shows that to be foolish as people are dying from cold in their homes.

     

    IMO homeowners should look into getting a new fireplace, chimney installed if their house does not have one.  Average cost of installing a masonry fireplace, chimney is $6,500 according to websites that came up from an internet search.  About the price of a used car.

    I think it is worth it. Ted Cruz could have bunkered in at home if he had a fireplace and two cords of seasoned firewood.

    Case in point, the individual who snatches up all the deal in the classifieds struck again this afternoon and grabbed another pair of reasonably priced SASS vaqueros.  They will soon be listed on gunbroker with a 40-50% mark up.   I have three cowboys that I am trying to keep interested and we are shuffling guns and leather during the matches.   They would all three like to find a reasonably priced set of guns but the mentioned individual buys every one that is listed.  Go back through the listings and just look at how many he buys and this doesn't even take into account the ones bought in PM or that he undercuts an OP on a WTB post.  Yeah, I am the guy who he poached three sets off my WTB listing.  It is getting ridiculous and I feel like the admins need to do something about this.  

     

     

     

    If you see a good deal, buy them before someone else does. Don't delay
