I got the arch mortared in after going back and recutting each piece to make more room for mortar (Thanks Dino, I think it payed off). Not perfect but good enough to hold up I hope.

Can't work this weekend as my youngest son is graduating college and we are headed out of town for the festivities. This having to work and attend to other activities sure gets in the way of progress.

Yep, Scott. My experience is the same. Life keeps getting in the way of progress... LOL! Still. We're both getting there... Must be a common trait of bullheadedness. (Or so my wife says... )

Keep up the good work. Looks nice!

Is it just me or does this thing looked blessed? I cut the chimney hole and the sunlight shining through looked cool. Still moving along slowly as life and work keep getting in the way.

I trimmed the arch to fit the dome. A lot of grinding...not sure I would recommend this approach but once I committed there was no going back.



Here is the first chain over the arch.



It worked but not as clean as I would have liked.

I've completed the 9th chain and it is amazing to me how well the mortar (Heat Stop 50) holds to this point. Sticks in place in a matter of seconds. 100+ degree days and I'm NOT soaking my bricks. I barely wet them and then keep it moist after they are layed for a day or so.

The 10th chain is in and still have not had to use support forms. I only mix enough mortar to set 3 to 6 bricks at a time since it sets so fast. I have a few bricks not lined up exactly as I like and resulting in a few edges sticking out on the inside. Should I grind it smooth or does it matter? Not looking forward to crawling inside this thing....

Not that I would bother, but can't you reach it from outside right now?

It would be a pretty tough angle. I figure if I'm going to do it I'll wait until the dome is complete and try to knock it all off in one take. I'm just wondering if having a brick edge exposed inside the dome will deteriorate in the high temps.

I have a few that are 1/8" to a 1/4" proud, but I have not noticed any issues.

11th chain is in!



Thought I would share my brick saw stand. I can easily follow the shade which is quite important for me.



I finally got the metal roof installed. I contracted it out as I did not want to tackle that one.

Cut and ready for the near topping out!



Installed the top ring and ready for the keystone!



Inside view.



Keystone is cut and ready! I didn't mix up the bit of mortar to finish since I gotta finish the outside arch and vent before I can fire it up anyway. Gotta work most of the weekend so I'm not sure when I'll actually get it "finished"....so close yet so far....
