    Default Chimney / Ceiling rafters

    Anyone seen this before? Personally I have never seen any chimney bricks sitting directly on ceiling rafters.

    Curious, How could this be corrected?

    With the tape they conveniently left nearby?

    The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

    Question Re: Chimney / Ceiling rafters

    This chimney obviously has a zero clearance to combustibles. The code calls for clearance based upon location (interior versus exterior). What are your recognized repair options?

    Keep the fire in the fireplace.
