I am a little confused by you not utilizing then space under the oven, I am watching with great intersest, though. I do wish that I had used the round base for my Pompeii . Keep us posted !

I am just confused, but I am sure it is clear in your mind, so I will just say, "Looking Good!".

Gulf, you know how the bugs and beasties are down here, I made my wood storage area small and isolated just to avoid a scorpion bite or a wasp nest.

Thought about using the interior below the dome for storage, but decided I'd just use the area under the landing to store wood.

You are right about that, it is too far to retrieve wood. I hope to use a large drawer under mine for peel, tools, doors etc.

TScar,
I was on a rig near Goliad many years ago. They had warned us about scorpions. One morning, before work, I shook a 2 to 3" scorpion out of my boot . I'm glad that I listened . I hate critters

My daughter caught a 3" scorpion in her room this morning. I asked her why she was taking it outside let it go, and after I listened to her liberalism-of-youth reasons why it had a right to live, I told her to let it sting her first then let it go. She squashed it.

The key words is (Have to kill one)! She was bullied into killing them!

No the key word is "Can " if its Main defense is attack and if its in your domain you can make the decision to stop it from being a threat . I don't know how poisonous they in the US but if it was in ozz I would kill them ..it's common dog thinking...:.
