I will do that. It will have to be a very narrow tool indeed. Do you know of an online source for such an item?

I would use a popsicle stick and your finger. I know, mortar is caustic, but it won't take you but 5 minutes to do it.

Default Framed it up!

Hi All,

I installed the metal framing this weekend.

I have a very tight allowance for insulation space, so I framed a sort of window with a header where the oven in close to the wall. This allowed me to put two inches on insulating blanket on and leaves me 2 inches (barely) for perlite.

I purchased a double wall chimney pipe but don't have pictures of that installed yet.

Drake, that looks fantastic. I'm just about to that step myself - I hope my framing will be as square as yours looks. I think that window idea will work well, there will be little outward force with the perlite. Will you add any slope to the roof? What roofing material do you plan? I think I've decided on a cheap metal roofing - easy to apply and fire resistant. I plan a simple backward sloping roof with no gables. I was dreaming of copper but then I started looking at cost and stopped.

Default Nice Work

Drake,

First the hearth, then the dome, now the enclosure; all look very fine. I neglected to answer the question about the narrow tool. What you need (or needed) is a pointing tool. These come in a variety of widths, from 1/2" to 1/8" and are available at Home Depot (usually) or a masonry supplier. If you have a grinder, the tools can be modified to suit. These are meant for facade brick and commonly come much too long. I did post a pic of my masonry tools at one point, but I don't know where it resides.

Maven, I am planning a flat, stone roof with a pond liner underneath for a moisture barrier. I was going to put a little slope on it, but I was afraid it would just look odd.

CannuckJim, I used a popsicle stick, it worked very well!

Default Cement Board

Hi All,

I got the cement board on the frame. It looks really really HUGE! I still need to get a chimney cap of some sort on. Right now I have a piece of cement board over the chimney.

One of my friends said I should post a picture of the oven with me standing next to it to give it some sense of scale.

I showed him this. He now wants to know where he can get his hands on a giant box of Molson...
