Putting up a chimney is not something new - just find an experienced mason and get their opinion on the best way to do it.

I would request vermiculate between the flue tile and block.

Really, a mason and a helper could do block with liner start to finish for a day's wages.

Pay them and have a few beers as you watch from a chaise lounge in a shady spot...sheeze!

I am surprised that old house doesn't have a nice brick chimney up through the middle already.

As many have said, putting up the actual tile and blocks aren’t rocket science..

More of a pain to remove siding and Eve sections of the two roofs, and digging out next to the foundation down deep enough and cutting through that wall for the flue entrance and clean out door entrance..

Biggest thing when stack chimney block is making sure that it has enough time to cure... as you get high enough, there is some much weight pushing down on the blocks beneath, that if the mortar inbetween each block hasn’t cured enough, it will squish out under the weight..

Funny you say that... in that exact spot were I want to put it, I tore out a brick chimney when I bought the house in 2001. I grew up burning wood and hated the work involved and the mess that comes with a free standing stove in the house. Told my new wife that no way were we going to burn wood. Funny how things work out but don't fret, it was only a 6 or 8", I need a 10 so it wouldn't have worked anyway. The footer for that chimney is setting on the side of my barn, ran into it while digging the basement for the addition!

You know I have an old friend that is a mason, actually my builder subcontracted him to block my basement walls which he did on the side. He is a 20 year Journeyman bricklayer out of a local hall so I need to contact him. Definitely be my best bet.
