Fireplaces and Chimneys
This project is located in the Dilworth Community, Charlotte's first subdivision built between the late 1800's and early 1900's. This community's Historical board works to approve all designs for new construction. The homeowners totally renovated the home doing much of the work themselves. The Architect called for the chimney to protrude from the center of the roof line. However the hearth and fireplace profile are located in the corner of the room on the outside wall. This chimney was therefore constructed to twist so as to rise through the center of the roof. The homeowners provided the brick which had been reclaimed from another structure on this site. Using these brick helps to keep the historical value. Here, many years later, these brick have been reassembled into another feature to enhance this community.
