Default Re: Newbie looking for basic masonry advice

I built everything myself with no masonry experience (but some handyman skills) and then had professional masons do the exterior work, since I needed that to look perfect...Also, I was pretty tired of working on it at that point...

You can do it!

Me too, no skills. The first time I ever lifted a brick was to build my oven. As it says in the plans, the first couple of rows of the dome are the easiest, so you get some practice in before getting to the more complicated bits...

Thanks again to all the respondents. As I get closer to actually starting, I'll be back with many more questions!
