The work, not furniture of course. Since I'm done with the fence, other than setting and installing a gate opener, and since I need to get the fireplaces ready for the fellow to come and pour a new hearth and seal off the chimneys before he gets busy when the weather cools off, I figured I'd work on them this weekend. I need to reset the lintels and tuck point the rest of the brick. But I also needed to unseal them where they had been bricked up and pull out the cast iron coal insert in off them. A job that took all day and numerous trips to the parking pad with mortar, brick and literally 10 pails of old ash and soot. Needless to say, I was covered head to toe. I need to install a pipe chase in the fireplaces for the gas line before the hearth is poured, and I figured out how that can be done. Sandra painted and caulked much of the exterior, traveling around the house to keep in the shade as the day progressed. Today I'll reset the lintels, get the kids to work on continuing to clean the house up, and getting deck banisters fastened tightly as there are a number that are about to fall off.

Cast iron insert that needed removal. I had no idea how it was set. I just started chipping away around the edges where it had been set with mortar.
Finally went around to the other side from the cast iron unit. Seems this side had been bricked in such a way that allowed the heat from the insert to also move to the living room. None original but done early in the life of the house.
Cast iron out and the fireplace open to both sides
Other chimney opened up both sides
