The bearded fellow is our senior fireplace mason who was on hand to guide the delivery of rocks (imagine that) for the Rumford fireplace. Foam removal continues on the host wall.
The outdoor firepit is ready for ignition. Just need a key from the plumber. Seriously.
The master bedroom fireplace is getting framed in. the basement wood stove was retrieved from the elevator shaft where is sat quietly for months.
The plumber is up to his eyeballs in pumps and valves helping me to figure out the hydronic heat.
One way or another, we will have heat!
