Hi Brett,
Your double entry wood storage has other benefits as well as better access. It provides good airflow over the wood to keep it dry. You will be very pleased you did it this way. Longer pieces of wood can also be accommodated. I love the look of the arches, they provide a reflection of the construction above them.
Dave

No use rushing... thats good work...firebrick....like the cut above the arch to make the transition from arch to dome smoother...Karanga dude will be impressed

Sorry to be a late poster...have just joined the forum.
I poured 4" supporting slab then 4" Vermiculite/cement mix 5:1....
Do I also need the Calcium Silicate board..I was planning on setting my bricks directly yo the base with a slurry of fireclay homebrew....
It doesn't instill a great lot of confidence in me with it's strength...What are people doing to ensure it doesn't get damaged...during the build and after.
I was going to leave my boxing on until I am finished my dome and ready to render.??
Any ideas would be good...thanks

Everyone seems to be concerned about the strength of the vermicrete layer. Because the weight is spread over a large area it is quite strong enough and you can stucco/render over it. Yes you can leave the form work around it to keep it intact until you are ready to render over it.

I think the lite weight nature of Vermicule/cement comes as a shock to your basic DIYer. Lets face it every backyarder takes pride in his ability to over engineer everything.
