Betts Fireplace and Chimney Project, Day 15

 Installation of 3rd and 4th flue liners.

This is an interesting shot demonstrating the skill of a good laborer.  Without assistance, Passo, who is down on the ground, has hoisted up a 5 gallon bucket of mortar ( 40 pounds or so) to the scaffold.  He has landed the material safely on the scaffold, and while every thing is still in motion, is about to deftly unhook the bucket with a lariat like twitch of the rope.  I've seen him do the work of two men consistently.

Surrounding masonry being developed around flue liners.
