Hi Brickie,

Can you let us all know how the 1" + loose vermiculite combination goes,,

I'll be up to that stage soon and i was thinking the same thing.

Also did you "press down" the banket with chicken wire?? or will those blankets stay in place?

Cheers,

Gummz

No chicken wire, the blanket stays where you put it, even vertically.

I started doing the roof today, its a ply base with asphalt roof tiles.
The oven now reminds me of a gingerbread house.
Im sure Hanse and Gretel will show up shortly..

Ive only done 1 side, the weather side as I have to add more vermiculite and still need access, all up I will have used 900 litres of the stuff.

The ply is FormPly used for concrete work, when you get it make sure its the Australian type as the Chinese rubbish rots, Ive never before seen FormPly rot until I used the Chinese stuff..

The oven is now finished, I finished the roof and added the extra vermiculite and now have about 300mm of loose vermiculite over the top of the oven.

Party time. Canceled due to bad date timing.

There is a thread somewhere on here about curing.

I can get a thermal reading from the back of the oven and the outside of the 1" ceramic blanket reads 66c while the oven is at 300c.

Great stuff or what?
