Any luck on finding medium duty firebrick around Richmond? I have only been able to find light duty. Thanks.

how many cubic feet will you use? I was thinking of using the FB board but haven't priced it out yet. Where are you getting the vermiculite, maybe we could split it up.

I might split that with you if I cant find the FB board. How many cu ft will you need for your base and dome?

Wow, your kitchen area is looking fantastic. That is going to be a great place to hang out.

I am leaning toward going with the blankets at this point as I am so tired of mixing concrete and mortar. I will check into some internet blankets for pricing. Your Vermiculite sure is a lot cheaper tho.

keep the pics coming. cheers.

Are you planning on filling that form with vermiculite concrete? If so, you may want to move it in to closer to the dimensions of the oven itself, not the stand.

Tscar:

I m on it....I pulled the forms today and reset them on top in anticipation of a vermicrete pour tomorrow. My mason bailed on me today so I m going to do the 7" vermicrete pour tomorrow.

I moved the vermicrete in so that my metal studs will sit on the concrete foundation and the upper walls can be flush with the base with veneer stone up to the roofline.
