In an apt that boasts a Beautiful Fireplace, you must have a certificate to make sure that your fireplace is serviceable, and does not cause any problems like a fire or smoke. A certificate of operation from the local clerks office is required, so that you can gain permission to have a fire in your flat. A chimney is a serious item in Paris, only for the very lucky few. I am hoping my luck will hold out as begin my search for this elusive character who I am already picturing will either look something like Dick Van Dyke or if I am lucky, George Clooney. A girl can dream, can’t she?
