Staci that looks totally amazing!  What a great finish.
I love your barrel tree. A great way to disguise it during the off season.

I was wondering if you could give a few tidbits of your experiences in regards to some of the things I remember you having problems with over the years and how you solved or lived with them: smoke back, plaster cracking etc. and also things you may change or recommend to others.

Sure thing, Gerry.  Might take a week or so to get it out- but will do!
Thanks!

I managed to read through pretty much this entire thread. You did great work and helped a lot of us along the way! Did you ever figure out what the issue was with smokeback and flames coming back on you?
