The chimney, well spotted. Mostly it is an optical illusion. However, the small portion of chimney that is on our side that was directly supported is corbeled into the brick party wall.
This project was a wonderful exercise is working within the existing form and materials of a 1900′s federation semi. All external materials are existing and we required to be, except for the sliding window and doors.
The outdoor work was not by us.
In regards to privacy, the place is almost in North Sydney. Very urban, but feels very private. A lane sits behind between the house and a school.
thankyou for your comments.
