Check Ebay for ceramic fiber blanket. I think you can find a better price.

I'm guessing 230 bricks minimum, depending on how precise you'll be cutting your bricks. I think Ken's Old Kentucky Dome thread has a spreadsheet (which I've never looked at) may detail his brick use.

If you are going to get all the bricks at once, go 300 to be safe. Return the rest if needed, and you also have the opportunity to use best ones too..

The prices I was quoting were for 2", 1" would be half that about $44-55 which is less than ebay and I can avoid shipping. I'm planing on going with the 8# , thinking it is just like a heavier blanket.

8 lb has better insulating qualities.

Yes, 8#, two inch thickness would be awesome. Sounds like your price is excellent. Perhaps a third inch and do away with anymore insulation such as vermiculite/concrete/perlcrete. My three inches plus around my 36" plus one inch +/- vermiculite/concrete allow no heat transfer at all.

Geeze, I love your property. What water are we looking across? The Gulf, or is that a lake?

About Vermiculite, I'd advise to take the medium. Mine was too corse and while it works ok, the insulating layer will be more stable with medium, as the cement is more evenly distributed through it.

Talking of bricks, I got 200 and now have about 65 left over... but they were slightly bigger than the US ones and I made hardly any cuts, so don't listen to me on that one

We live on Richland Chambers Reservoir, it's the third largest lake in Texas. It was built in 1988 as backup water supply for Fort Worth. We are an hour south of Dallas but the lake isn't overdeveloped. We love it here

I had been thinking about a 2 inch blanket and 2 bags of loose vermiculite over it, but you have change my mind to 3" of blanket. The cost trade off is a push. I'm thinking about a stone exterior later so I could always add loose V later

Oh by the way I've saved the picture from the previous post from the internet, I think on the FB forum . I'm planning on something like it - it may cost more than the rest of the WFO.

RC, I plan on stone exterior too. Who knows though, at time of framing, my mind may change. Sounds similar to each phase of the oven build. We see great ideas to use. Lets see if you keep this idea
