Dura Craft Shenandoah Chimney and Fireplace Tips Please!


Recommended Posts

Hello-Let me start by saying that this is my first house and I have followed every instruction to the letter (not my usual way of doing things!!) The house is up now and the chimney/fireplace is coming up soon. The instructions are looking very scary so I would love any tips/suggestions. I am not AT ALL above deviating from the instructions if there is an easier-even if more expensive-way...such as using stones, etc. in stead of using the powder/template strip that is provided.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Don't be scared - The Shenendoah was my first house also - mixing the powder and using the template strip was very easy and turned out nicely.  I don't remember if I mixed color into the chimney stucco, but for the fireplace I tinted the mixture black with some gold and copper stripes and was happy with the results.  Trust me, if you put all those logs together, you can certainly do the chimney and fireplace.   Good luck.

Mix your powder with white glue as well as water to the consistency of thick frosting.  I used one of those fake credit cards we got in the mail to spread it on.
