There is a hypnotic fascination with the dome ceiling which is hard to describe. This is the magic of the dome and at least partly why we go to so much trouble to build the dome rather than the vault.
Nicely done cloita

Aren't they just beautiful?!!!? Like you say, magical.

Very well done sire!

I love the sound of a fire in mine, the echos and the pops, and when it gets roaring...

Cleaned out the inside this past weekend since i'm at a standstill waiting on my Duravent.



My son got inside too


Duravent anchorplate will be waiting for me when I get home Thursday. Hopefully Sunday I'll be posting pictures of the first curing fire!

OMG. I am claustrophobic just looking at the picture of you inside the oven. But if I was there, I might have drank your beer.

Your son seems to fit inside pretty easy - make him do the work. No way would I get in there. Looking at the pic makes a very strong argument for not using mortar

Hey Cloita,

Wish I had a helper that size to help me clean out the inside. How's the anchor plate coming. Mine is sitting in the gargage while I do the final touches on the chimney cap.

got cracks in the slab on the cuts where they should be, watching them very closely. would be just great if that portion of the slab cracked off and floated away!

anchor plate is in the box in my garage still, i'm still eye balling my chimney transition and i hope to knock it out this weekend but i hear there's a crapload of rain headed my way until monday. BOOOO

After a weekend that threatened to rain the entire time, I was able to get the vent transition almost complete but ran out of daylight again tonight!






Two more bricks to mortar tomorrow if it doesn't rain, then cladding to work on, and finally some tapcons, high heat caulk, and the anchor plate before moving on to curing.
