Chimney Structure

Recommended Posts

Two out of the three flues were closed off, but I just cant figure out what they did structurally in the attic. Looks like a mess to me.

Curious what the, more experienced, brethren have to say

They took an old single flue chimney, cut it off in the attic and stacked junk on it to make a bigger more impressive three flue chimney on the outside.

How do you know it wasn't built like that from the get go?

Jim,

You can see smooth faced brick coming up from the attic floor and then it is concrete headers and cement block till it reaches outside where it transitions to a wire cut brick. House about 80-90 years old, before cement block were used for chimneys.

Just my read of the picture.

Builders only recently got that sloppy?

I suppose an artist could be proud of that creation. But it doesn't look like something a mason would do, do ya think? [:)]
