Cactus Farmer/Cat Rancher
I am in the process of buying a house, a very run down house but one with a well and septic No more hauling water Anyway, I was thinking of perhaps putting in a chimney in the kitchen for my wood cook stove. I had an idea to use single walled stove pipe encased in field stone. The chimney would run on the outside of the house. Would conventional cement suffice as mortar or am I inviting disaster? Besides hopefully being cheaper I like the looks of field stone chimneys.
