An idea on repairs? (Buying a Fixer Upper Home)

It is a little more expensive but not much. Another thing also if you install a new oil fired furnace you will probably need a stainless steel chimney insert, unless there is one there already. It would be a good idea anyway, In most of the older homes when they got ridd of the wood stoves that were attached to the chimney, they didn't fill the holes properly. Most they just patched the plaster around it and left the chimney open in the walls.
