Can I build an exterior chimney and install an interior fireplace on the 2nd floor of the house with no footer under the actual fireplace? Is there a way to structurally support the weight of the 2nd floor fireplace by the chimney (which sits inside the exterior wall of the house) and meet 2009 code?
