Default Re: Bacterium's 2nd build

Found some perlite from last build, to fill my thermal break.

Went to see my mum (mother day)... dad and me got stuck into cutting up a pile of wood I've had drying out.

Tried getting flue through roof tonight but too much rain, hopefully tomorrow night

.......so itching to start curing fires. Just on this. Dome is noticeably dry as I've had it rugged up during rain and tarp off when warm weather and wind about. Probably been that way for at least 2 weeks. Wonder if I need to do much curing at all. Basically it won't have its blankie on yet but maybe curing fires during the week and pizza on Saturday night.

Over the next few weeks I'll work on blanket and render....so would obviously cure then to some degree.

Definitely feel like its coming together now.

......nearly had the flue in but got sick of putting the corrugated iron sheet back on 4 times between showers.
was almost going to put my rope/harness on but was way too hard.....a glass of red got the better of me

Here here for the red.. I had too pull the few bricks up that I layed today. Need to rethink the mortar, the bricks suck the shit out of it. Might go back to soaking them more.

On the home stretch, nothing like a fire to know you are almost there.
