Well today we got good news and bad news! Good news was for $60 we had the wood burner inspected and it is good to go! The inspector just suggested a paint job since the top is a bit rusty. Bad news, that room where the wood burner is, the roof is shot totally and leaking. So the ceiling in that room has to come down. When Mr. Visionary went to put a small hole in it to see what needed to be fixed, he discovered the plaster was about 3″ away from the lath, and could collapse at any time. So when I left (allergies were kicking up and Princess was having a not-so-regal morning) he was tearing out the ceiling.
