After having the fireplace insert installed, we began noticing that the wall in the bedroom (next to where the chimney stack goes up through the center of the house) started showing some cracking.  We’re guessing that it’s being caused by the expansion/contraction of the flue now that it’s being used again.

The cracks go pretty deep into the plaster.

The cracking was so bad in the upper corner that the recent repair work I had just completed peeled right off.
