I'm using the air hammer and my specialty hand honed chisels.

With cover, heat and winter mix juiced to 20 degs. I pointed this puppy up...weather has been cooperative, but cold.

This used to be a partial brick house, now it just has brick chimneys

Re: Bidding This One


Installing Tin foil on the cavity foam will lower the AC load on sunny walls....1/4" Tuff R..?

Do sneak in a few hundred replacement brick at grade, or just blend in as you go? For broken units from demo?

You subbing out the carpentry?

We're deep in shack weather here.... single # and teens at night...

From probably last year, maybe the year before

"I'm almost as good a carpenter as I am Mason "

He'll probably do the carpentry himself.

Brick is not going back..it's all hardie board come January. Walls will get flushed out with the second floor where the veneer was to keep things in plane. I'll add a course of block to the ledge to bump the wall off grade.

Plenty of subs on this job and the weather has improved a bit from being downright hideous...crossing fingers

Re: Bidding This One


This job has turned to complete remediation...sill plates, rims, sheathing, whatever it takes to keep it moving.

Chimneys are drying out nice, but i'm gonna probably hit them with 600 detergent before the seal process. Some other things masonry are interior chimney stack repairs, foundation blockwork and removing and blocking up a basement window.
