Please don’t tell me that the two 2x4’s are the only support for this chimney?

You didn’t hear it from me, but yes! and very rotted 2x4’s at that

Looks like a good place to hang your hammers and circular saw and such if you ask me!:stuck_out_tongue:

Wow. What were they thinking?

well, it’s probably been there for many years and did it’s job, but now that the supports are rotted, I think it is about to retire from it’s job!
