Default Re: Portland and Perlite

Thanks for the thoughts. Looks like I get a time out for a few days for some cure time anyway. We will be getting 2-4 inches of leftover hurricane rain way up here for the next few days. Looking forward to Saturday!

I did find firebricks for a $1.10 apiece. They offerred to cut them in half for me for $1.00 each. As much other cutting as we will be doing I don't think it would be worth it. I did line up a bricklayer's saw for a month. Should work out fine!

Keep it covered though...don't want it to get wetter
$1.10 is a pretty good price...down here in brick land I am getting them for .
.99...don't bother with the cutting service...they will not all necessarily be halves most likely...enjoy the build!a
