Spring Fling chimney, part 2

by brae  

Have I mentioned I love egg carton bricks?  :D  Yes, they are a lot of work and very time-consuming, but they just give such an awesome result.

I had to cut away the roof to make room for the chimney.

I then cut two additional pieces of foam core board to finish the chimney on top of the roof.

Getting level and complete coverage of bricks around this top section was challenging but so worth it.  :]

When you see it next it will have on its Sunday best...painted, sealed, grouted and a finished top.

Ooooo!!! *giddy clapping*

I wish I could find some of those down here. All I see, everywhere, is the styrofoam ones. :(

It looks fabulous Brae. I really like it. I am hoping to share a sneak, too, later tonight or tomorrow. :D

I love egg carton bricks too! I’ve only ever done stones. Don’t know if I’m neat enough for bricks.

Can’t wait to see the final project!

Thanks so much! My bricks are not all uniform, so it’s a good thing painting and grouting works to disguise those sorts of things. :yes:
