This restoration was for a couple in Sevierville who have lived in this residence for over half a century. From what I remember this is a pre 1900 home. The homeowners were worried that one more strong storm would send these chimneys through their ceiling. I must admit... they were in awful shape. After the years of sun and water... the lime mortar had all but disintegrated.
Each brick was carefully removed and cleaned. With help from our handy dandy lift rental... this process was rather stress free (for the most part). The job went completely as planned and we even had some great views along with some of the best homemade pimento cheese.
