We were so excited the other day to find brick beneath the drywall surround on the fireplace.
Unfortunately, it was just thin-brick – and terribly laid thin brick at that!
We’ve removed the drywall and exposed the brick, but are certain we are going to have to remove the brick as well. When we look behind the “brick” we see what looks like original framing indicating that, despite our earlier assumption, there may not have been original clearstory windows afterall. Doesn’t mean we can’t put them in though!
