Hi Crawdaddy,

Its me again, being an ass! I went back to the photo of your V-crete layer. Do you have a better photo of it? The photo I mentioned above was slick and smooth. The V-crete should be a thick, grainy, crumbly delicate looking layer, to have insulating value. I hope that you have a photo, so I can stop thinking about your darn oven.

That looks like vcrete, but i can tell where it is in relation to your oven.

How is the build going?

You really have a great site to party and enjoy water sports!

Your vericrete doesn't look like 5:1 to me. How much sand did your mason put into the mixture?

If you are tearing back to change the floor to flat, I'd put an ceramic fiber mat under the firebrick as well.

It would really improve your floor heating quickly!

Has Brickie checked in with you yet?

We fixed the bricks on the floor and walls today.
We stayed with the 5" of vermi-crete as the under floor insulation.
Hoping we finish the dome and flue next weekend.
Happy Labor Day
Michael
