Seattle Chimney Rebuild Time Lapse Video

Check out our most recent Seattle chimney rebuild project. Check it out!

Normally,  This chimney rebuild was unique in that the damage to the chimney was strictly limited to the area above the roofline and chimney flashing.  Normally and Seattle chimney rebuild project would need to be torn down below the roofline, have a bond beam poured, and then rebuild the chimney using the new earthquake code rebar reinforced masonry construction. The chimney was in excellent shape below the roofline and the amount that needed to rebuild was right on the cusp of the required update. Also, the historical brick and brick pattern that was used was gorgeous, and the bricks had been discontinued so we had to reuse the corner accent pieces. This would not have been possible with the new construction codes.

Tell us what you think about the brick pattern!

West Seattle Wood Stove Installation Time Lapse

Here is a Seattle Wood Stove Installation we did for one of our customers in West Seattle. Yes the back wall will get painted, but we thought you would enjoy the process just the same. Check it out!

 

This is a Lennox Striker Free Standing Wood Stove.  It vents through a 6″ black stovepipe. It is EPA certified which means it is very clean burning and efficient. Wood stove installations like this usually take about a day, however, for this install we split it into two.  For more information on this stove, or for the other stoves we offer please visit our Online Wood Stove Store.
