Re: Lakeside Shanty


The wood framing and steel structure, followed by sheathing, roof etc. and then the masonry begins. The 'chimney' you see is actually a false one, designed to house the kitchen exhaust and the fire rated exhaust for the indoor BBQ. The structure is suspended on the steel frame. Winter was just setting in... hence the tarps...

Re: Lakeside Shanty


This Spring we tackled the work above the roof-line on the false chimney. the bulk of the cladding was a 4-5" bed, sawn and faced granite ashlar in 2,4,6 and 8" rises. The top of the chimneys were clad in 3-4" vertical slabs... this one i believe was around 3' by 8'.
The 'homemade 'clamps' look a little amateurish I'm sure... but they served the purpose.

Re: Lakeside Shanty


We capped the chimney with a cast in place concrete slab, which was then covered with a leaded copper pan, and the blowers for the kitchen and BBQ were dropped in...

Agreed. I have shown many a pictures from this forum to others I work with. However when I show Bytor's work the corners are what people/I comment on the most and they are just amazing.

Re: Lakeside Shanty


Karl, It's a local granite (granitic gneiss, technically) that has been sawn into ashlar. The bedding planes don't make for good hand splitting... The client picked the stone purely for the color.

I guess i didn't really take any pics of the 'raw' material, but I've included one here of some of the stone awaiting install in one of our winter hovels. Also one of a rather wet slab waiting for its trip up to the top of the chimney...

fortunately we haven't used propane in many years... I did have my propane 'ticket' at one point but all I ever used it for was running salamanders on the job site. Eventually I let it lapse and just never renewed... there's also that whole ambiguous area of leaving a propane/diesel/kerosene heater running un-attended over night. At least with the electric heaters, we can all breathe a little easier (in more ways than one) and the cost of heat gets rolled into the general job-site electrical requirements rather than being this unknown 'extra' that you have to justify to your client.

Re: Lakeside Shanty


I agree completely. unfortunately 90% of the houses I work on have no electricity. It's such a nice radiant heat as well

Re: Lakeside Shanty


As with most of you I'm sure... last winter SUCKED!
We built a shelter around part of the foundation in advance of the worst weather. A big concern was the potential for snow sliding off the metal roof above, so the shelter turned out to be quite sturdy.
