Keith - I used chicken wire and it worked fine. It held the vermicrete until it set. Once that is in place the subsequent layers are easy/easier. I assume you are buillding an igloo.

That sure is an interesting flue!! It doesn't stop the airflow too much?

Wait a minute - is that blue sky I see in the background? I thought you didn't get any of that over there!

Very nice fast progress you have been making!!

I'd strongly suggest putting just a thin layer of vermicrete over your blanked before stucco-ing, even if you don't need it for insulation. I did stucco right over the blanket and found it to be a huge pain. Your blanket will be lumpy in places where the layers overlap, and stucco is a pretty terrible material to smooth those out. You'll get a better finish with a vcrete layer first. 'Course, you'll probably get a better finish than me anyway, because I am pretty lousy with stucco!

hi rsandler, just read your message, after cracking on tonight and meshing and stuccoing! tbh it wasn't too bad although i put quite alot of sharp sand in the mix which probably made it easier!!

Glad it worked out for you! Clearly you are handier with stucco than I. Looks good.

never put up a finished photo so i thought i better had!

i changed the single wall flue for a insulated flue and rendered her up, then when i was sure she was bone dry i covered in sikalastic which is basically a system we use at work on flat roofs its is a single component, cold-applied, moisture-triggered polyurethane membrane. It cures to form a seamless, durable and weather resistant waterproofing solution for exposed roof areas. its flexible to and has a service temperature of 90 degrees. do you guys over the pond have anything like this?

Can you give more info on this, like which specific product it is, and how to use (if it's fussy). It looks like a great product, but the sika web site I found is just awful.

Thanks in advance, Simon.

Hello there Keith,
Also wondering what you applied before the membrane? Looks like stucco but you were able to put it on in a really smooth fashion? When I put mine on it was so cement like that it was very hard to work with. I would like to tile my dome and need to smooth out what I have with one more layer to then lay tile on.

Any input you have will be greatly appreciated. Nice build.

Question, will that membrane melt if it gets above 90 Degrees? If you meant Celsius then it will likely be fine.

simon, heres a link here to the spec of the product used https://www.promain.co.uk/specsheets...20UK%20PDS.pdf

it was basically just painted on with a paintbrush nothing fussy, when it's used on flat roofs you normally apply in two coats with the first coat having fiberglass remat in to strengthen, but as i only had a couple of inch of stuff that was left over mines only had one good coat. where are you up to with your oven? are you looking for a waterproof finish? a few people in the uk have used k rend that might be worth checking out.
