Looking good mirassou. Glad to see your cooking de pies.

The vermiculite looks like it has some binding material in it. Was that troweled into place? I would like to add a little more insulation on top off what I got, but I fear it would not stay in place and end up in the soffit.

Stuff insulation between the top plate and the roof sheathing then fill away.

Thanks kbartman, it's all vermiculite, no binder. #4 size. It was windy yesterday and it seemed like half of it was blowing out and around the yard. I used more than I thought I would...over a cu. yard.

Finished up on tar paper for the roof today, caulked the perimeter of the flue with hi temp caulk, cemented the crown for the chimney, and caulked all gaps. Ready to order the metal roof now.

Ordered the steel roofing today. $225 and change for ribbed roof and accessories,, colored. Our local supplier is Better Living. The steel manufacturer is Welcome to Marco Metals, LLC. This included the roofing cut to qty 6 55" 3' panels, 1 ridgecap at 10.5' not cut, 1 endwall transition at 10.5' not cut and 4 sidewall pieces for the rake and fascia. I have a couple of 12" x 12' hardiplank vented soffit boards that I'll use for soffits.

Pizza has been wonderful with the oven, though not without spits and sputters along the way. Picked up the metal roofing the other day after some break time. The oven is tarped now and unfortunately it won't be used for the company holiday party tomorrow, but I'll hopefully be able to work on the roof in the next few days.

Finally started putting up the steel roof today as it was a little warmer outside. Unfortunately, I was a little overzealous and did all of the trim work, including the chimney endwall. After I'd finished, I realized that the endwall is supposed to go over the roofing, not underneath lol. So, I'll have to order another piece of endwall.

My continual learning on how to make pizza has been going well in that each session gets better. I still have an issue with too much elasticity in the dough and am trying different recipes to figure that one out.

Gudday
Regards the dough that wants to spring back. It's as simple as putting the dough in the fridge to rest overnight. Let it come back to room temperature for an hour. You can leave it for 3 days if you want. It's as simple as that.
Regards dave

00 flour is also better in reducing the tendency to continually springing back.
