Ohio1913, kterlep, others--salvage brick reuse question
Hi, I read your mention (in blackcats thread about her roof job/chimney snag) of how you both had unused chimneys taken out, and saved the bricks to use in landscaping.
I have to take out an abandoned chimney for an old laundry boiler, and I've been toying with the idea of salvaging the bricks and using them for walkways. I'm concerned that in addition to the substatial work involved in preparing a proper bed for the bricks and laying them, I'll be faced with painstakingly chipping the mortar off each brick before I can even use it. So I'm wondering, how did this go for you, and would you do it again, or just buy new bricks? Thanks!
