Wow! What a great shot, Ryan. I've never seen a chimney like this before. Very interesting architecture! Greetings, Anne
Oh, I like this work, Ryan! Not only the spiral part of the chimney, but also the bricks and the tiles of the roof. Very nicely done and fine material.
Beautiful shot, Ryan!
Ibid all the above!!!
I never thought a chimney would surprise me. A craftsman with pride in his work put a lot of loving detail into that house. :)
Thanks, May and Pam! Yes, the roof is wonderful, with different colors and sizes of shingles. And it's very well maintained as well. And this chimney is rather unusual as well.
This is a very cool chimney, are there many homes like this around that area? I wonder why they did it like that?
No, this is a very unusual design. There are other spiral chimneys, for fireplaces and also for pottery kilns, but not common at all. It's purely decorative, and doesn't have any other purpose.
There's another one in Dragør near Copenhagen.
…and I have seen one in Ireland on a B&B. The house was called "Crooked Chimney". :-)
Thanks, Bruce. I assume it's a slate roof, but I don't know for sure. I really like this roof, though, and I'm glad it doesn't follow the exactness of the shingled roofs we build today. Ryan
