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.
