Construction Update 16

27 Jul

A lot of things are happening at once now. We made a mad dash to Memphis to pick-up the fireplace insert we bought last April.

Here it is sitting in it’s proper place in the corner so they could get the chimney installed.

This is the double-walled pipe we are using. We went with an insert because it was less expensive and safer. The manufactured box is rated for a hotter fire than most brick fireplaces and is still cool enough on the outside to allow wood walls to be within 2 inches of the metal.

This is the chimney box, covered with roofing felt. The bricklayer will install some sort of thin stone veneer to the outside once Sweet Thing picks it out. More to come!
