It's coming along nicely NCMan! I see others builders covering the dome, like you have in the picture. Is that home brew mortar or something else? How thick?
Great Job!

It's home brew mortar. As I set each brick, after tapping the back of it down, I take the excess and smooth it out on the dome, all the while holding on to the brick I just set with my other hand. I find that the more mortar spread over the brick, the better it seems to hold and set. That's just my way of doing it. I would guess everyone has their own way. That's mine. There is usually around a quarter to three eighths of an inch or so on there when I'm done. Just enough to smooth it out, cover the bricks and maintain the rounded shape. Thanks for the compliments.

Just a few more progress pics. I have completed course number nine. Weather and time permitting, I plan to work on it some more this weekend.

I managed to squeeze in some time Friday afternoon to do some more dome building. Here's the latest photos. I'm getting close!!

Looks good. Not far to the plug. I look forward to watching as you put the finishing touches to an impressive dome.

Thanks, Steve. I hope to get the dome done this week, if the weather cooperates. I know it'll make me happy to reach that milestone in the build, so I can move on to the rest of it.

Hey Carl, I've been away from this for a few months. I'm going through it page by page and your build looks great!

Have to relish those last few bricks in the dome, as it'll be done, though I see that you have the remainder of the entryway to finish.
