Should I do both coats with marble, or just the brown coat? I'm going to need 3.5cu ft if I need to do both. Do you stock it at MPI? I have one guy I can check with here for marble, but it's a long shot.

My lead in town panned out for once. My co-workers neighbor does pools, but they sub out all the gunnite to an outfit in dallas. He happens to have 2 pallets of marble dust left over. I'm getting at least 4 bags, maybe more, for 2 handles of Jim Beam. My co-worker is possibly the most skilled haggler I've ever met, I might wind up with more.

hopefully it will warm up again towards the end of next week and I can insulate and stucco the dome.

I wish! If I'm on my A game through Sunday, I'll be able to get the dome blanketed, insulated, and stuccoed next week.
Unfortunately, that means in the attic: finishing the radiant barrier, building a new platform around the attic stairs, sealing penetrations, re-doing the upstairs furnace chimney that's currently venting into the attic, blowing in 13" of cellulose; in the garage: replacing the blend door assy and actuators on my neighbors grand cherokee, replacing the ball joints, drivers side CV, and power steering pump on my wife's car.

We'll see.

I did get 5 bags of marble dust, so I'm good to go for the stucco. I just need to shell out $18 for a 70 lb(!) bag of white cement. That is made in Waco(!). Kind of like how I can't find hydrated lime in Waco, yet there's a lime plant 5 miles north of town. I swear that finding materials has been the hardest thing about the project by a wide margin.

I've been lazy about posting pics, I'll get on that when I'm not trying to run in 5 directions at the same time.

The lime plant in Clifton is bulk only, so if you need a truckload they can help you out. Their bag plant is in New Braunfels. $18.00 a bag is steep for white around here.

I was referring to the plant in lacy-lakeview. It's possible it doesn't exist anymore, though, because I got that info from my co-worker who grew up there. It still just surprises me that it's that difficult to find.

I'm going to check around on the cement, but it's $18 at the box stores, which is crazy. I know darden stocks it, but I haven't priced it there yet.

I just stopped at darden while I was out at the welding supply, 11.25/ bag for the same Lehigh white cement. 16.80 for white Portland. I bought 2 bags of cement, one Portland, and I got a freebie bag of white cement that fell off the pallet and broke open. I'm looking forward to next week

It's been a while... I just recently got back on finishing the oven. Since winter has broken, I've been busy using the oven

I got the hearth extension poured and decorative arch done this weekend. trying to get the first couple courses of chimney casing done so I can start the stucco/perlcrete.

I had a hell of a time trying to stick perlcrete to the blanket, so I'm going to build up a few inches of stucco, then backfill with perlcrete, at least until I get halfway up the dome. It should be easier up there.

Superb looking front arch. Gotta love Stone and Brick together.

Thanks! It was a last minute addition. I purchased 12 common 3-core red brick from lowes while I was laying the oven out initially and they fit the opening space better than the king-size brick I built the rest with, so I decided to use them for the deco arch. I couldn't figure out how to make a decent looking keystone with the brick, though. I needed a few more bricks, so I went to lowes and bought a few more (at $0.73/ brick :/ ) and checked over in the outdoor gardening area and sure enough there was ONE nice yellow piece of Austin stone. That stuff cuts and chips beautifully, I see why everyone uses it around here.
