Fireplace part 2, chimney love!

Lately I have been a wee bit obsessed with herringbone pattern.   And you will see this repeat in my upcoming posts as I reveal more of the house finishing.    I didn't realize it until I starting looking at my notes and seeing the "pattern".   And I mean that in more ways than one.  Not only is the herringbone a pattern in itself, but also the pattern of ME using it in various places throughout the house.   So it started on the chimney!  

I am so thankful for our mason who has been a saint (literally) with all my descriptions and hair-brained ideas.  He has basically gone off my "words" and made it the way I wanted it.  Bless his heart, seriously!  

So here is a bit of the chimney.  They still have to finish the top and put the clay chimney pot on.  But I figured I'd show you the progress so far!

It's that attention to detail that makes all the difference in (and on) a house. We built our house three years ago and my husband planned out every little detail from start to finish. He hates the hotch-potch, thrown together, "oooh, this would look neat here" look. Everything has to be planned to have continuity and a flow throughout the entire house, at least throughout each room.

That brick work is awesome. I am glad you have a mason that understands what you want.
