argh...that is such a good point. missed that bit in the plans. so obvious though...

what to do. should pull them up but ive run out of fireclay that i had left for bedding...and its 4 weeks off anymore.

reckon yellow brickies sand mix (22%clay) would do as bedding?

see this is why i love and hate this forum...love it for the right ideas, hate it cause now i have to re do haha.

G'day
Scrape off the fireclay sand mix and rehydrate it .....
A simple way of doing this is one of those 20 ltr paint tin mixers on the end of your electric drill and a 20 ltr plastic bucket. Takes the pain out hand mixing small amounts.

Much happier with the re work...re did the floor on 45 degree angles (herringbone). all nice and level, ready to start the dome.

using that paint mixer on the end of a drill is an awesome idea. worked a treat. i think i'll be using that method for mixing my mortar...screw the cement mixer for the smaller amounts.

cheers

Progress!

Rebuilt my IT using steel rod, a caster, and welded a nut onto the angle iron which makes it adjustable to cater for the raised floor it is attached to.

More progress...

Added a touch more concrete to the front to extend the landing. Wasn't sure if I was going to do this or not but decided to today. will make it easier for the archways etc.

Mocked up the first course, then mortared it in! Feels good to finally get to this stage.

Cut a couple of bevels in the entry bricks to allow for the door jam. Using the big brick saw (attached) is like using a pick axe for a needle but so long as you cut on the outside of the lines its fine... Was a bargain that saw. 300 bucks on gumtree.

Also, I had forgotten how difficult that ciment fondue is to work with. Ratios are 25kg of ciment fondu to 10L water to 10L sand. 1L of sand is 1.45kg (based on 1450kg a cube), so can get it down to 1.25kg ciment, 500ml water, 2.9kg sand. It's dry and hard to work with...pain really. I did spray it a bit as i went to keep it moist.

That's a bargain yes ........I got a brand new 16" bricksaw for 200 bucks, now that's the ultimate bargain.

Nice work, like the reveal rebate idea.
