The chimney's done. Okay, it's not faced with stone yet, but don't hold your breath for that one. This is the North Country, after all, land of unfaced chimneys. Actually, The Husband and I are going to a quarry this week to take a look at what's locally available. He's in favor of river rock and I like the big flat ones.
Here's a pic of the very tippy-top of the now completed chimney.
