Q: We recently replaced our furnace with a heat pump and we no longer need the brick chimney. My husband has removed the bricks from the top of the chimney to the top of the main floor, and now we have a huge pile o' brick that we don't know what to do with. The brick is in pretty good condition, and the mortar can be chipped off, if it didn't fall off already. We're looking for suggestions for fun and funky projects. (As for use in landscaping, we live in a small urban house on an island in the middle of the North Atlantic. We get snow. Lots of snow. And wind. And rain. You get the picture.) Suggestions?
