I'm glad you enjoyed the house and had good weather. As you say the traffic can be heard from the garden - but it's only audible as a distant hum from a few rooms in the house and can't be heard from the other ones. I hadn't had any feedback about the fires so have now arranged a chimney sweep to come and sort them out!
