Fireplaces and Chimneys
This job site involved several renovations to a home in Charlotte's historic Dilworth neighborhood. Additions to the home were also being made at this time. The old chimney was in serious disrepair and did not meet current building code. We completely removed it to 3 courses below the roof line and built up the new one from there. After the rebuild it was in compliance with code (and looked a whole lot better!) Renovations included fitting crawl space vents, filling in missing block, and parging up the whole to finish it all off. We also built new steps. The side steps involved building the supporting structure under the columns and then finishing the steps around them. The front steps were built up to the rebuilt porch. Finally, we prepared a foundation for the new porch.
