We're doing many things to get ready for Winter here on our tiny homestead, one of which is to buy and stack lots of firewood (thank you, Bear) to get ready to use our wood stove. This year for the first time we successfully cleaned the chimney ourselves, in spite of last year's failed attempt. (Or maybe we should wait until we light the first fire to say for sure that this year's cleaning was successful?) Either way, I've written up instructions on how we did it, to help us remember when we do it again next year. I've posted the pdf in hopes that the instructions will help you too:
