I'm planning to build a structure very similar to the one in the picture. I'm curious if I should attach the structure to the fireplace or let them float separately? Both the fireplace and the support columns will be on the same poured foundation. the foundation is 3' of block over poured concrete with rebar so the columns and the fireplace should move the same over winter. or I should say not move. I'd prefer to bolt them to the fireplace for added support in windy conditions.
