Thankyou for taking the time to answer my questions, and I'm sure I'll have more. I had already been utilizing your website (it is very functional). I also appreciated Vicky's assistance and her referral of "Mike" to be available for comment on my design.

After we spoke I also took the time to look at your background. I also am in favor of Masonry fireplaces and chimneys in lieu of the metal chimney/flue. I have always noted the functionality/esthetics of the various masonry fireplaces of the homes where I have lived. That is also why I was willing to step up to designing a fireplace/chimney for one of our clients.

I will take you up on your offer of listing our company on your website's Architect/Engineer link.

Again, thanks for taking the time to share some of your knowledge.

I enjoyed talking with you too, Susan. I admire your courage to be able to "step up" to designing a masonry fireplace and chimney and then doing a thorough job of researching the subject so that you get it right. We won't let you down. Fireplaces aren't that hard.

I'll get you listed in a day or two. It's difficult on the road where I have internet access only through a hotel telephone line.

Keep in touch,

Warm regards,
Jim Buckley
