Poured the Hearth (with 3 bags of Maximizer) that a slice of Granite will go onto. Granite around here is 3cm (1-1/16) so I left 1-1/4 to the floor level for thinset and I want a slight slope on it.
Im a little concerned about water compromising my Ceramic Fiber Board under my landing. Any thoughts?

Here is what is below the floor bricks that I dont want to get wet. I did put plastic down between it and the concrete today but rain water will be able to go between the Granite and Landing/Floor unless it is sealed with Caulk but even then 5-10 years down the road, you know what most Caulk/Silicone's look like

I had a consistent 300 degree dome all day today. I let her die out and just blocked the opening with leftover bricks. 2 hairline cracks were noticed but very thin. One wrapped around about 2/3 the way around. Very thin.

Are you going with an igloo or a house? Easy to put a cover over the counter with a house. I had the same design here in Seattle with no problems, but my eaves stick out 18". An igloo is a different problem when it comes to sealing up around the base.

and to preheat your flue - just put the fire in the entryway for about 5 minutes, then push it back into the dome.

Gotcha, Yeah its going to be a structure built around it. I can't wrap my brain around an igloo out in the exposed weather not leaking at some point. Im fashioning mine very similar to Boylanta's build with a few changes. Not sure I can do 18" but will explore a deeper overhang for sure.

That is a cool, machu picchuish chimney base.


Since you already poured the landing and can't flash the insulation, I have a suggestion for a cleaner looking joint.

After you caulk, use stainless steel channel to cover the joint. It's more durable and it will protect the joint.

You noticed! Wonder if the Incas used Makita or Dewalt angle grinders?
Are you talking about a "U" shaped SS channel? open up or down. I "flashed" it to a degree with the thickest black plastic I could get, but I know its not the proper way of flashing mainly it was so that my crete had no contact with the CFB.
Id like to explore the SS idea more

If they did, I'm sure it would have been Makita.

This is channel stock

Install with the channel facing down, over the caulk....then you won't hold moisture. About caulking the joint..........

There should be something in the joint, so that the caulk doesn't have three point (fixed) contact. Normally backer rod is used to prevent this (along with controlling caulk depth), but the heat will melt it over time. So maybe use ceramic rope, pieces of ceramic blanket or board. Since the material acting as backer rod is free floating, it will work as a 'backer'.

Oh, and for pre-heating the flue, you can also twist up a roll of burning newspaper and hold it to the flue as you start a small oven fire.....metal flue heats up fast.

Is the oven facing the prevailing wind?
