Garden sprayer to spray a fine mist to cut down on dust and keep the blade and brick wet. Soak the bricks of course. And Hubby (Glenn) added a dog "cone of shame" to further protect the motor from dust. Don't have a picture at the moment but will post one later. Also had a bit of left over vermicrete so dumped it into Chinese food containers to make mini bricks splits. Thought I might use them in a door???
I've been thinking of adding some beer bottles to the out side of the done between the blanket layer and the perlcrete vermicrete layer. They should provide voids which will be great insulation. I've seen houses built with this incorporated before.
Going hunting today for an old Pyrex pie dish. I love these door people have made with the windows. Going to give making one of those a go they look awesome.
Also wanted to say thanks to whom ever it was that posted the drawing of the brick cut in three for the dome. We did a test run an it looks like it will work for our dome. If anyone knows who originally posted pleased let me know I can't find the post.

Love that saw set up , done your research well , but see how it works, if it still proves to be be dusty, a respirator is the final defense.
You planning to use ceramic blanket and pearlcrete .. Great they are very efficient. The glass bottles however ... Well they are retrospective step if you using more efficient methods.
50 mm of ceramic board or blanket or equal (roughly) to 100 mm of pealite cement or vermiculite cement, or if you like, a combination works.
Although you can't have to much insulation they say.
Regards Dave

Hey Dave, ear and eye protection already in use for the whole family. So far the dust has not been too bad but only cut a couple of bricks.
Cheers

The insulating collar is set so the main floor is going down. Hubby is just laying and cleaning up the bricks. I'm cleaning up the tiles for the actual cooking floor. Man are they heavy.

So I thought I would spread a great idea we had.
First one was to use fancy version of blocks which means we don't need to render. These actually ended up cheaper than the plain grey and are of a better quality.
Secondly we paid for our slab concrete to be delivered also cheaper than doing it ourselves and got them to colour it. Then we asked them if they ever had a bit left over on other jobs and would they bring that round for filling the blocks. Well yes they often did. And yes they did and even better they gave it to us for free. Always worth asking especially when you only need a little bit. The end result is slightly more than every second core is filled with concrete. This stand isn't going anywhere soon. Oh yes and they had a half bag of colour left over from another job which is what was needed to colour ours so they chucked that in for free too. That was a happy day here.

is this what you mean?

Bathurst Build 100cm ish-brick-001.jpg

is this it?.... Cool Id wished id known this one when I built
It will need to be buttressed, as all soldier courses do. 25 mm of mortar on the outside will do. Myself I like the idea of adding a coupla rows of barbed wire inbeded in the mortar like they do in mud brick houses for strength.

Yep Dave that is the idea we are copying. They are looking good. Dry stacked the first part of the arch up as well also looks good. Feels like we are getting some where. Now if only it was not sooooo hot during the day we could get more done. Barbed wire ha ha that's cute. At this rate maybe just maybe we will be cooking by Australia Day. I live in hope
