I started working on a firebox yesterday and finished bricking it today using egg carton bricks. It still needs paint and mortar. This is about all I can show you of the work I did this past week during my minifest vacation. I got a lot accomplished this week off from work. Posted Image Egg carton bricks are just about my favorite trash-to-treasure material. I used them on the Newport foundation and to make the study and living room fireplaces in the Newport. So, now you know I have a fireplace in the Spring Fling build. Hmm...I hope I haven't given too much away. Posted Image

Probably a dumb question but how do you get all those flat pieces from egg cartons? Aren't they all shaped to fit the eggs and lumpy? Haven't seen any in quite awhile either. It looks like a professional brick layer did the chimney. Very very nice.

Thanks so much! I use only the flat portions of the tops and sides of the lids and recycle the bottoms where the eggs sit. I use the inside surface as my brick surface since it has a good bumpy texture.
