The weather got warm! it's warm outside! This was the only winter that seemed to stay too cold for brick work. SO I AM BACK! picking up the morter Monday and moving forward with the dome!

Can you tell I am happy?

The day finally arrived and the oven went back into production. I worked about 3 days ( a total of about 8 hours) and have compleated the dome! here are some photos you can read more about it on my blog.

Here are the antique slate roofing tiles I will be using to cover the dome when I get done with the insulation. It should look very old school.

I have used about 185 bricks purchased for $1.10 each because I had a bricklayer friend give me his price. they were from a standard brickyard.

the bricks were not hard to find. they are a standard brick used in fireplaces. are you having a hard time finding them in your area? I think shipping them would be very expensive.
