Removing chimney stack from sauna

We had planned to use the sauna at the cabin as a guest cabin, but unfortunately it has become unusable.

The brick chimney stack inside the sauna is built on the ground, and the base of the chimney has been moving down the slope towards the lake, causing the whole sauna to tip.

Last weekend (with a lot of help from Teres’ father) I removed the brick chimney stack.

Here is where the chimney stack used to be inside the sauna.

This should prevent any further movement of the sauna during the winter, and then next year we will lift up the sauna to make it level again.  Then when we have money, we will convert the sauna into a guest cabin with beds, a small stove, kitchen area and toilet.
