I’ve also included quite a few pictures of chimney pots of various styles that are very interesting.
The chimney and chimney pot photos that you’ll see in the gallery were taken in a couple of separate visits I made recently at the construction site of the immense Victorian home that I am featuring over the next few months.
I was not present for the construction of them (darn it!) but I do have the results to share — and they are quite spectacular!
These chimneys tower over the roof line in impressive fashion and the chimney pots are — of course — terra cotta. Nothing says “Victorian” quite like a clay chimney pot does.
Not only do they carry away the smoke, but they also increase the draft efficiency of the entire fireplace system, thereby improving the quality of indoor air while giving more character to the home exterior.
All of the chimney pots installed at this Victorian home were supplied by Earthcore Industries, Inc., sold under the brand name Isokern. The contractor didn’t just install them straight out of the box. Nope… they had a talented local artisan age them by using a faux antique painting method.

I also have another post featuring many types of installed chimney pots and more information on them, including links to how to install them, the history of chimney pots and more.

I started as a home-stalker… visiting brand new homes under construction in the neighborhoods near my house. That inspired me to write about home building and home renovation projects — chronicling homes during different phases of construction from a consumer's point-of-view. Basically, the tips you'll find in my articles are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building or remodeling a quality home.
