Thanks Dave, Its proving to be a little devil because I did't plan that far ahead when I did it for my brick on the surround. My corners overhang a 1/2" right at the back of the curve. {{{Scratching Head.}}}}

I have the brick work sorted out and came up with this design. Cedar shake roof brick on the surround and cedar on the facia. I know it's wood but we'll be okay this insulation will be done right.

Ramped up the curing today to a full blaze. I had been easing up the temps, two days ago had over 600F no problems, and today cleared the top of the dome and thats where it stayed. Got two hairline cracks inside. So i guess keep it up over 550 for a few more days and maybe it will dri out enough to clear the whole thing.

I really like your roof design, a nice area to keep out the rain, I hope you used treated lumber next to the concrete and a sill dguard strip to keep moisture away.

Beautiful door!!!!

I will need to think about the over the door question, I have a large expanse of brick over my opening also.

I would guess a green bay packers emblem would be out of the question
