Thanks Mark,
I will be applying 4 inches of perlcrete to the entire dome for insulation. By the way, am attaching the rendering of the complex.

The WFO is not shown in the drawing but will be in back of the horseshoe in the kitchen.

Your absolutely correct Splatgirl. I thought we would finish it this week but not quite. Of course my bricks are less than half the width your typical fire brick, but I have used over 550 bricks so far and it looks like at least another 150 more. Keep you posted. Hopefully, we can finish before we leave for California December 15. Keep you posted.

Am about 3/4th finished with the dome and leaving for the states tomorrow for three weeks. Thought I would show these clips I used from someones post here. Can't remember who's post it was but it's brilliant. Once the courses got past a certain point, gravity took over and there was no way they were going to hold just by the morter surface tension. Luckily, I saw the post just before I was at that point. Slip these clips on just after you have it tamped into place and works like a charm, and I had the wire laying around. Can't tell you the size of wire but much thicker than a clothes hanger wire. You need the stiffness. Thanks for the great tip. John

You guy's didn't tell me what a tedious process this is. Have over 700 brick so far and when will this ever end?...haha When I get back, I will have my little Filipino mason to crawl inside the dome to finish it. That dome is starting to close in on me. One wrong move and I'm knocking off bricks faster than I can put them up. Can't wait to fire it up.....after the New Year i guess. Happy Holidays everyone!!!

Hooray!!!!! The bricks are finally finished. With over a thousand brick and a lot of blood sweat and tears but also a lot of fun. Learned a lot. Unfortunately I was using my new Christmas camera and the resolution settings were too high to post here. For those of you on facebook here is a link => Login | Facebook
