    Am I reading this right - 1 chimney, 2 fireplaces, each fireplace currently has its own unlined flu divided by a brick partition? If that's the case, yeah you can line each flu and run a woodstove in each.

    Have it cleaned/inspected. If it's intact and sound, and the two flues are completely separated by masonry all the way up, then yes, you can line them both and install two appliances. Rick

    Yup. Just what fossil said. 1 liner in each flue.

    Shhh. Don't tell the building inspector here. My two tile flues are one inch apart in that big brick behemoth.

    Wythe walls are like teeth in VA. Rarely found.

    You are thinking of West Virginia. Newby sweep. What I like is the way the mason turned them they are six inches from the brick around them.

    And that close together when one stove is already burning getting a draft in the second one is a piece of cake.
