Great to see a plan come together. I think you made the right choice finishing up the top. It looks better than just having the clay sleeve sticking out the top.

Definitely, I originally thought the clay would look cool, but as I got up to the top...not so much.

Had another fire last night, chimney is drawing really well, no smoke out the front which was my big worry. All that work getting the firebox dimensions right paid off I guess.

Short major project break now while I work on a lot of minor projects then hope to get started on the pergola next month..."Your home is your headache," but in a good way.


Doing things almost the right way...
