    Lucky for you Wayne.

    That's a small hole to squeeze in to, and oxygen levels get low quick!

    You better feed him well!

    First pizza I would think!

    Congrats on your progress.
    Everything is looking really good.

      Good for you Wayne! I got a little freaked out when I shimmied into my oven (face up) for the first time. I felt totally claustrophobic and my heart started to jump out of my chest. I had to tell myself, 'It's ok Rick, you're not in some Crypt, you're just in the dome you built!' After awhile it got kinda' peaceful and pretty comfortable! I did however, need to keep one hand on the outside arch as a security blanket! (Actually the only way I could fit through the door was one arm over my shoulder and the other down by my side.) I was hoping my wife wouldn't come home and have to pry me out with a giant shoe horn!!! Tell Neil you owe him Pizza(s)!!!!

        Cool pics
        Either your dome is smaller than mine or your help is bigger than me - it certainly looks like a tight fit!

        I quite liked it inside the dome, nice and peaceful. Actually I considered moving in permanently. But the best moment was when I thought my children had removed the chair I needed to climb out again

          It seemed to me that the closer you were to finishing your oven the more "help" that became available. I certainly had more help after my dome was nearing completion....

          Looking good!!!!!

            Great! Even better than hiring a neighborhood teenager..... and the price is right!
