I have a 90plus furnace and just put a direct vent tankles water heater in . I plan on ripping out my chimney. Am I allowed to do this since I have no use for the chimney and would like the space inside the house?

Other than all the work required to tear out the entire old chimney, absolutely no reason to leave it there. I have torn the tops of old chimneys down many times when putting down a new roof if it was no longer in use, but I've never torn one out completely. I guess my thought is if space is at such a premium in the place, that you are pressed for that what 3'x4' area, maybe it's time to move to a bigger house. ;)

It is time to move, but I am remodeling because the house is way outdated and since I'm lookin at the chimney I figure why not take the darn thing out. It will make room for a shower stall in the bath.
