Smoke Chamber and Chimney
Made the most of the breaks in the weather yesterday to get the chimney up.
This involved building a smoke chamber in front of the door to capture the smoke and send it up the chimney. I was pretty keen on carrying the curved theme through from the oven to this, but it seemed a bit tricky, so went with a flat top instead. Much easier to lay, and install the chimney.
Was given a beaut, complete, stainless steel chimney by the Lockridge connections. Looks good and had every thing that I needed.
I replaced the sheet of Lazerlight above the oven, with a sheet of Custom Orb left over from a previous project. Reduced likely hood of being affected by heat. Also gave a firm base to fix weather-proof chimney sleeve to.
Next step is slap on final coat of render so that it looks nice and tidy.
