I had some dome clearing on the last fire. So far I have not seen any cracks. The last firing on Sunday the oven held heat all week 150F on Friday. I think I'm ready to pour the heat to her.

I installed a couple more thermowells on the opposite side of the others. I think I will add one more over the oven to monitor enclosure temp.

I hope to get the roof trusses done, finish insulating, and get the oven dried in this week. I have the next couple days off work.

I trying to get my mind around attaching the felt paper to the Hardieboard. I tried a hand stapling gun and 1/4" staples the shortest I could find. No luck just bent staples.... I was thinking a hammer type stapler may do the trick, or would it bend the staples also? Any suggestion before I spend the money for one?

Just imagine a roaring fire in its mouth, with the circles glowing day-glow green in the dark?

Gonna have to use screws to attach to hardiboard. If you are worried about moisture at the penetration, smear some silicone on there. But the pressure of the screw should prevent moisture. Great job BTW.

Thanks Guys,
More screws for the felt, I'm running out of places to put them I figure a washer would help. I hope I will still have room for screws on the metal lath..........I found my first heat induce crack today. I should have started with charcoal. The kindling fire for the bed of coals was very hot quickly. I thought it could handle it. The crack is maybe 1/32" or more. I tried to photograph, it did not show up. Oh well it's official all domes crack at least mine. I'm sure there are many more under the insulation. The oven is starting to clear now, crack is smaller maybe 1/64". It is on the inner arch. Should have started with charcoal.

I was able to finish the insulating and get the trusses mostly complete today. Completed thermowell for enclosure temp... I have 5" inches of fiber blanket surrounding the upper portion of the dome 3" the lower. I used the rest of my vermiculite at the bottom of wall enclosure then finished with fiberfrax loose insulation up past the additional 2'' of blanket on the upper portion....Hopefully get the roof dried in tomorrow.
