Default Re: Perth 42" Pompeii - dome to flat entry integration

I'm baaackk! Slow progress here in Willetton, but have had a knee operation so have some form of excuse. Have made lots of errors but it's coming together. Tomorrow I have hired a brick saw - the angle grinder only goes so far.
Probably have to rethink my formwork for the remaining courses. I cut it ok, but instead of leaning the bricks directly on it, used wedges, so now, there's a gap between it and the bricks. If I'm consistent, it will now be a nice, round and slightly bigger dome. Might be able to just lift up the foam formwork into the remaining section, we'll see.
