More Mortar, Please

This fireplace looked harmless enough in the living room, until the attic inspection. The layers of brick were turned any which way and most were barely buttered with mortar. Some holes were visible through to the chimney chase. The lower chase was narrow and then flared out toward the roof penetration.
