Stone masonry Rumford Fireplace with chimney in Johnson, Vermont

Finally some photos of the fireplace and chimney I built in Johnson, Vermont this summer/fall...
all the stone was handpicked from the locality.

yes, that's a blurry glass of champagne and the first fire

soon it will be complete with siding

the structure, facing the road

Rumford 42", with slate stone hearth in front of firebox

and, to give you a sense of the work process, four sets of 6' high scaffolding to reach the top.
