The fireplace is starting to emerge as a finished item after we got an inspection on Tuesday and Ray was able to begin wrapping the framing with lath. Stone was started yesterday and should take several days since the curved sides take time.  Ray also needs to get brackets made and set for the new hollow log that is going to be placed across the front, but the initial results of the stone look good.


Sandra and I have been laying out flooring on the second level for acclimation, and yesterday started fastening the master areas - BR, closet and bath.  We should finish that today.  

Started work on getting ready to set vent pipe for the second level fireplace.  Had to cut open the ceiling in a bedroom to have access to a joist bay to run it in. Not pleased to have to do it, and the venting should have been run before the sheetrock was put in, but was one of those things I put off.  So now will have to patch a 12’ strip and repaint once the venting arrives and is set and inspected.

Ray, the artist who is building the fireplace on the main level.
Horizontally placed hollow log that Ray found in the woods. Final location will be about a foot higher than it is shown here.
Stone started. The face above the fireplace will be straight, while the sides will be curved as shown here
Flooring in the second level laid upside down to acclimate for a few days before putting down. We’ve seen just a hair change is moisture level in the already very low numbers.
