Wow, that's gone up. I was quoted about $1400.00 almost 40 foot chimney one large flue, with some repointing work up top too. But that was 20 years ago.
Remember that I have 5 fireplaces tying into several different chambers before merging up top. Materials alone were $10,000. The guy had done another old multi fireplace house here in Ct. with more fireplaces that ran $80,000.
As far as running a wood or coal stove into any unlined chimney in Ct. it's illegal from what I was told. Even if it wasn't there is no way in hell I'd try it with my old chimney which is surrounded by 250 year old planks & beams.
If my liner fails in 15 years I'll just be thrilled that I'm still breathing & here to see it happen.
