I'm paying $25 for 3 cf That's a good idea. I was hoping to fire it up again once I was done with the oven. 10 days of 8hr+/- fires I needed a break haha.

Since i assume you are building a house around your dome, filling it with perlite or vermiculite is cheap easy and I think money well spent for future heat retention. I love the fact that my oven holds heat for several days.

Just saw your price on vermiculite, Ouch! check your local commercial greenhouse supplier for perlite, sometimes concrete block suppliers have it as loose fill for block.

I found the vermiculite to be ridiculously expensive too, and not worth the "insurance". Outside of my insulation was already at ambient temp, so it seemed like overkill. I have 3-4 inches of FB blanket and no issues with heat retention.

If you do decide on adding loose fill, check out a concrete block supplier for pricing, it is used to fill CMUs cells for insulation vs a big box store.

Keep in mind block fill is almost always finer in particle size.

Anyone here know what most people use for gloves when putting stone veneer on their enclosure. I've been doing it bare handed and I now have no fingerprints and I've gone through a box of band aids. Very painful. The issue is you need to be able to work the stone and clean up the excess mortar around the stone. I'm constantly in and out of a bucket of water wetting the stone and sponges to clean them. Rubber gloves offer no sense of feeling when working with the stone and heavy duty suede gloves get soaked in 2 minutes. My hands just can't take it anymore. It hurt just to type this message

I don't always wear gloves, but when I do, I use Atlas Dipped gloves.

Stay healthy, my friend.

Also, you should not be pointing with your fingers....get a tuck pointer for that task.




This one should be about right for your joint size.
