  • How to secure dome insulation blanket

    Can anyone tell me how they secured the dome insulation blanket to the dome? Thank you.

    I used rebar tie wire. Put a screw into the hearth on either side of my arch, and then ran a loop around the base. Criss-crossed the wire over the dome and arch to secure it. It worked very well - and tie wire is cheap and about the right pliability. $2-3 for a couple hundred feet of it (lifetime supply!)

      I set thin wire loops into the dome wall and floor, that way you can thread more thin wire through their loops like a spider web. Thes wires are easy to tighten by grabbing them with the nose of a pair of pliers and giving it a 90 degree twist, to make them sit firm.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        Didn't you know that you can secure anything with "Duct tape"? Everybody knows that!

          I like how threads happen around the time you happen to be near that part of the build. Convenient but freaky.

            I used bird wire and worked my way up just attaching it to itself and then folding the mesh over itself to form the dome shape. It came out a good shape, must have been beginners luck.

            My thinking was I wanted to be able to get some vermicrete behind the wire and this way I was able to do that and get a decent result. Once the vermicrete goes off it all firms up and the render covers the lot.

            Here are a couple of pics of that part of the project. Hope they help.
