    Ever consider a wood stove that sits on the hearth smack dab up against the opening of the old fireplace and then run a stainless steel flue pipe up thru the old chimney with a new cap on top. My neighbor did a retro on his old fireplace and was amazed at how efficient they are and keeps the...
