Do it yourself Chimney

Sometimes during a Home Inspection I figure… “they read a book and gave it a shot”. This one I’m not too sure. This beauty sits atop a wood burning fireplace with Heat Exchanger (cracked BTW).

The buyer thought it was pretty neat… I dis-agreed





A clay tile liner would have been nice :roll:

Is it block all the way to the fire box?

Oh neat interlock on the block work and real good looking counter flashing . :D:D:D

there were two sections of liner directly above the firebox (maybe they ran out?)… they built up with brick/block on the interior and left it as-is through the attic. Nice stuff.

They probably got a “deal” from a friend of the family
