Haven't had time to touch it but today I decided to spend some time and close the dome. Next is interior grouting and chimney.

A man after my own heart, just getting it done without being too fussy about appearances...

Did some grouting and grinding today. One problem. I was inside and ran out of heatstop and yelled to my brother to mix a batch and pass it in and he mixed me portland with water and I didn't know and grouted half the inside with it.

Will I have issues?

Portland and water will simply crumble and fall out over time.. portland wont withstand the heat and fails/falls apart.

Sorry

looking good though! how much did you use?

Did half the inside with heatstop I mixed and then asked him to mix me more and he used the wrong bag so the other half is Portland. I hope it doesn't flake onto the pizza. I won't be able to fit in there once I build a landing to regrout.

A couple of decent fires before a pizza night will get rid of it.

I got a center ceiling height of 21 and an inner arch opening of 13.5". I'm not a small guy and knew I'd need the extra inch in arch to get my body inside. I'm at around 64% ratio. Is it OK?

Another question. Trying to order the ceramic blanket here and it only allows me to select an air shipping method which is over $300 for shipping. No ground shipping available?

Mine ended up at 63 percent. Really doubt it will make any difference between that and 67... Still gets hot and makes perfect pizzas!!
