Dusty, it is not the size that matters

Well, here's two photos taken tonight. They may have turned out better if it wasn't so dark - full moon though.

Dusty, the dome is looking great. How long for each brick before the hold takes place for you?

Dusty, looks good! But how much longer can you keep saying it's 4" tall??
Keep up the good work.

Acoma,
I've been mixing the mortar a bit wet and soaking the next brick for a minute so I have a bit of time to tap them (squize out the extra mortar) and level each one. By the time I do all that, maybe a minute and a half or so, it is set enough to go to the next one. The angle is getting steeper though. I am not sure that will be the case today when I start the sixth course. I'll let you know.

Sarah,
Just saw your post. I can't say 4" inches any longer. Suppose I should rename this thread, but it still seems to be a good conversation piece! It's now @15" tall and I'm heading out there now. Gunna try for 17 1/2" today. I'll keep you posted.

Finished the sixth course yesterday and got my tools and bucket washed a full 10 minutes before we were to leave for the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert. Not a problem. Quick shower, clean duds, brush teeth, and still had a munite or two to spare.
Took some photos today. Biggest problem was I mixed too much mortar.

Nothing more frustrating than running out of mortar with a brick or two left to place. The cost of doing business, in my book.

The dome's making great progress. You're dreaming about it at night, aren't you? I know, I know. It's all right...... Just don't tell anyone.
