Often here at Tectonics II Ltd we get the chance to design and build amazing Chimneys and Fireplaces for our clients. Recently we built a spectacular 2 story fireplace that makes the room absolutely pop.
During the home building process it’s important to start block work during the framing stage so you can properly flash around the penetrations through the roof. Copper is used to flash from the roof through the CMU block to the inner Flue.
When doing stonework we often contract our go to masonry experts known as Shirley Brothers Masonry & Excavation.
Once the block is finished we bring in Mones Masonry to start the rock veneer. The 2×6 board is used as a guide for plumb lines and a stopping point for the rock before installing the mantle.
