A Unique Digital Timeline
The 'History' section of a Chimni Log features a unique timeline that allows you to tell the story of your home through pictures, online records, maps and census reports. The image below is a screen grab of a typical timeline, with 'info modules' for every key finding, document or event. The timeline lays out the story in a scrolling format, with each module able to show an image, summary text and links to online sources.
