I’m not a brick mason by any means,but every one I’ve put up or torn down was installed with morter.The main theme was the natural gas line running through the flue however.

Just when I thought I had seen it all. Had to make the choice to remove a old flue in the kitchen in a rehab.I needed the room because of the small size of the room so I went ahead and tore the thing out yesterday.

All went well as I had a roofer replaceing the roof at the same time.Got through the deal pretty good till the last block at floor level just wouldn’t come loose.I went under the floor to see what was holding it so tight.(6-4 ,240 lbs 18" crawl space don’t add up)THe wisdom of some people is really amazing they had the GAS pipe run through the flue block, guess they didn’t want it to freeze.

Outside edges of the blocks did have mortar but the liners had no mortar at all,now think about that one,glad I took it down now!!

Thought you guys would like that one,

A blast…from the past…(almost)! [nt] - Posted by SusanL.–FL

are installed without mortar, that is normal.
