I’ll be honest… installing a 13 foot tall chimney monument in a Madison County field during the middle of January isn’t exactly what I had planned on doing…. but I’m making the most of it. The best thing is that I don’t get cell reception, so I can ignore the world and just focus on the project.
We got bricks laid just path the fireplace today. I pushed as hard as I could.
Then the cold rolled in hard.
We had to use the weed burner to try and dry out the clay/sand mortar at the end of the day. And then we covered the whole thing in straw bails to try and stop it from freezing so bad. No work tomorrow. The temperature is supposed to be a height of 20 Fahrenheit. Too cold for brick laying that’s for sure.
