Building a Log Home, chapter 24



The stone masons cleaned up after themselves. Hurray. The fireplace measures 7 ½ feet across, comes out about 3 feet from the log wall plus another foot and a half for the raised hearth, and soars to about 25 feet.

You can see that we left about 8 inches of space between the top rocks and the ceiling to allow for the settling of the house. After a few years that space has disappeared.
