Yes it would have. I didn't have one and should have spent the 29.00 at Harbor freight. Live and learn. I got it done.

Like I said in an earlier post, My wet saw and I are very good friends now, haha.

I was able to get most of the forms done for my next pour today. Thanks to he help of a few friends. I can't do much without a few buddies raising a bunch of questions. I spend most of my time explaining why I am doing this or that....

Most people have not spent hours reading and learning from this site. They have no idea that most of the things they ask....was thought about a long long time ago. Then researched here and planned out...

Funny.
My wife just laughs when she hears me explain something for the 10th time.

Today we formed the hearth and secured the rebar etc.

Things are coming along. Lots of work. Basically 6 weekends in from the beginning. Progress is good. We will pour next weekend.

Darin,

It looks good! Just make sure the perimeter forms won't move, a lot have used straps to secure it. It amazing how much lateral force the mud has.

I have blocks screwed in to keep it from moving but I will take your advice and add more.

More pics this coming weekend.
Then it is finally time to start building the dome.

Hey guys, Ok today we did the second pour. It is an exciting day for me, this means that everything else can be done solo by me! Moving forward, I won't have to relay on others to help keep it going.

I have learned a lot in the last tow pours. And we had a lot of fun. Getting a few friends together to do a project is pretty cool. Just cost me a 30 oak lol.

Chheck it out....

Yes,
Both the Slab and the Deck are colored in Mocha (Davis Color). I have stamped concrete all over the yard. I wanted the oven to match in the landscaping design that is pre-existing.

I am excited to start the dome. I am leaving for Hawaii for a week so I will lose some steam on the project - But the hearth needs to cure anyway. So we are all good.
