CHIMNEY BUILT ON SHELF BRACKETS IN MONTPELIER, VT
Yes, folks, this is a masonry block chimney constructed on shelf brackets screwed to the side of a house. Needless to say, our technician was taken aback when he first saw it (and also somewhat impressed with the MacGyver-like ingenuity of the installation).
Masonry chimneys should always be built on top of a properly constructed foundation, usually constructed of concrete.
