Devil, as long as your taking a break from the political threads, why don't you do a detailed thread on the chimney and it's construction? The base, dimensions, thickness, etc. Type of mortar for the brick and tile and how it is applied to each. Cap, flashing, etc. Oh, and don't forget the pics!

There, that ought to keep him busy.

Except for the Tupper, it looks like it was installed upside down.

Just flip your monitor upside down then! :P :devil:

(I think I'm more excited to get their stove up & running than they are!)

That looks very professionally done, they did an excellent job on it. What is the open space at the bottom of the stack? I can't tell since it's such a small picture and I don't own any coke bottle glasses yet :P

Yes the outside pic, the opening seems to look like it's level with the side of the house. Thanks for explaining to me what you see through your glasses :D

It is a pretty small & dark pic. The brick goes down to ground level at which point it hits the (darker) cement footing which goes all the way down to the bottom of the house foundation wall.
The mason is a friend of Wayne's (son-in-law) & they don't charge each other any money. Wayne is a roofer & the mason needs roof work!

Great chimney....it adds an exclamation point to the house!!!
