Yes, I plan on a narrow gap running the length of the peak, then a ridgeline cap on top. Also a couple of vents under the eaves.

Ken et al,
I am thinking about throwing up a quick enclosure with a sloping roof and fill it with loose vermiculite, so I can begin my curing fires. It is -8 F today and heater and halogen have been running round the clock to keep mortar above freezing. The latest mortar was put down nearly a week ago, but I am thinking that any moisture not driven out by the fires may be a freezing hazard and a bad thing. I haven't yet decided on a final design for exterior so likely what I put up this weekend would be dismantled in the spring, making way for the final design.

My question, were it you what would you use (as material) for side walls and roof on this temporary structure?

Given the unfortunate tendency for the temporary to stretch into infinity, I'd make it REALLY temporary, think refrigerator box and duct tape.

Ha! A dose of reality from dmun. Good call. Somehow things become good enough after you've used them for awhile.

Ken,
Regarding the studs touching the chimney, I'm not sure if stainless steel is impervious to corrosion that occurs when two dissimilar metals contact each other. That would be my only worry.
Another possible option is to purchase (What?? More money???) chimney straps and use that as an interior anchor, or possibly a roof mounted anchor box that surrounds the chimney giving the necessary 2 inch spacing from combustables. (yes, I know the studs won't burn ) There's a lot of different hardware for the duratech systems on the web.

That might fly if not for my wife, who agreed to this entire project only on the basis of a perfect integration with her gardening and backyard. As mentioned in earlier posts she has already served me notice for the current tent like structure, so this can be transitional, but something better than a large kenmore logo in her face all winter.

Next?

Jim

You can do what I did.
A little wire fence cage around the dome.
Cover it with screen.
And then pour you insulation in.

George,

I never would have thought of the dissimilar metal possibility. What I'll do is move the braces back 2" from the chimney pipe and secure some leftover 2" Kaowool hardboard between the braces and the pipe. That will secure the chimney and avoid both temperature and dissimilar metal problems.

Thanks for the great brainstorming!

Sounds like a great solution to possibly a non-problem. I stress about little things like that and ignore doing an awesome job on my dome. Penny wise and pound foolish........ kinda my style.
