Did the slab today and perlcrete will be scheduled for Monday after the slab has cured over the weekend. Almost there, almost there...

Here is my version of the indispensible tool. It's very crude I have to admit. The pivot is made out of a magnetic door stop. I attached it to some pvc pipe that I found lying around. The end is just two pieces of wood attached to each other at right angles. I'd love to fabricate it out of metal but as long as it gets the job done I'm satisfied.

Perlcrete going on the slab today. Here are the pics of it as we are pouring on top of the slab. Now that I have actually seen the perlite, I can see why it insulates very well. Funky stuff I have to admit. While mixing it, I discovered why the mixture has to be a little dry. The cement has a tendency to settle to the bottom if its too wet. Its important to add the right amount of water to make sure the perlite is coated with the cement to make sure the perlite "grains" bind together properly.

Raffy

Nice rebar layout on your structural slab. Especially the "hook" on the ends of the individual pieces. Most don't do this and therfore lose a lot of potential strength.

I urge anyone who is building a structural slab to look at Raffy's post and pictures of 03-11-2010, 09:26 AM

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the compliment. It means a lot to me especially coming from a seasoned builder such as yourself. With regards to the perlite/cement ratio, I'm using 5 perlite to 1 cement. With the first batch I mixed up, I was a bit careless with the hose. The succeeding batches came out just right.

Regards,
Raffy

I love tropical brick ovens. The setting is just so beautiful.

BTW, if anyone here is a Mexico traveler (I've been there more times than I can count), the little tourist village of El Panchan at the entrance to Palenque has a wood-fired brick-oven pizzeria called Don Muchos. They claim their oven is intentionally Italian in style. Nothing beats eating brick-fired pizza in a rainforest with the sound of parrots and monkeys in the trees.

Nice stand btw. Best of luck.

Having lived in a tropical country all my life, I've taken settings like this for granted. Hehehe. Thanks for helping me to learn how to appreciate it again. This is exactly the reason why I was asking about waterproofing an igloo style oven in another thread. I wanted to incorporate the oven into the setting and not make it stand out. I think an enclosure would be too conspicuous.

I agree. Too bad our garden is missing the sounds of parrots and monkeys.

Thanks! As a newbie, it makes me very proud to hear things like that.

That is a beautifully solid looking stand! Every time I see stands like this I keep changing my design ideas. Oh boy...
