Default Re: 48" brick oven from Melbourne

Thank you for all your input for convincing me to pull everything down as i did today, and i am starting allover again this morning.
It was hart breaking to destroy all my hard work i have done.
I cleaned all the brick and will use it today, didn't cost me anything more, just a day full of work. hehehe
Just before going to bed i will like to share few pictures with you guys what i have done today to guide me and support me during my build.

Thank you once again.

Atta boy, now your talking. Be sure to ask away with any questions, they are much easier to fix than after the fact.

Dario,

In the #4 photo of your rebuild, it may be an optical illusion to me, but are the solders leaning inward somewhat? If so, are you planning a headstart on the horizontal travel of the Dome? Looking Good!

Do you have permission from your local council to build so close to your boundary fence? Where I live we are required to build 1.5 m away from any boundary fence, otherwise a complaining neighbour could force you to dismantle all your hard work.

G'day Davids
The 1.5 rule is pretty much Australia wide.

Good point, maybe they both could be in trouble.
With such a large oven Dario, perhaps you could drill a hole in the fence, rig up a line and "borrow" some of your neighbours fuel.

First Solders course leaning a little inward just to get next course a little easier on a angle.

Free fuel would be nice.
Cheers

This is where i got up to in last few days, I've been working my ?ss of to get the dome done, and now i need to concentrate on front arch and chimney.
I've got few questions should i put 2 layer of ceramic blanket straight on the dome or i should add extra mass, like a layer 50mm of shiracast Cement to my dome first and then blanket and than another 50 or 100mm Shiracast cement and sand?
Can i leave my dome exposed to any rain now or should be covered?
Any advice how can i finish the front arch and chimney, would be appreciated? 48" brick oven from Melbourne-p1030595.jpg

The angle got so bad on the 5th course of the dome,it come to a point where i got worried that everything will collapse bit it didn't.

Then i pack some sand to get the dome closed.
