Yesterday, Ron, the mason dropped off the first load of bricks at the house.
Today, Ron came back and set up the scaffolding. He can’t begin work until we have the building permit.
John had to trim a few branches off the maple tree because they were in the way for the new chimney elevation.
Hopefully Ron can start work on the chimney next week.
I have to talk to Ron about how we want the chimney embellished a little when he caps it off. I found this chimney rebuild online (scroll down) with a raised stone cap that we both like for Brick House 319.
