Gulf,
My maters are struggling a little. Wife says I don't talk to them enough saying how pretty they are. Actually tried to harden a little too soon and stunted them a little.

Made some headway on the Pcrete. Just as I am getting the hang of forming Pcrete I am getting close to being done.

That's because the most of the vertical is done! Every layer now is going more horizontal . It gets a "helluvalot" easier from here. Great job!

Thx, Not as smooth as yours but next is a more solid rendered layer that can handle the ss shingle screws. Never ending project.

that build is looking great.

Have you had much shrinkage on the prericrete? What was the final thickness you went for?

I am having trouble finding the ceramic blankets and I am thinking about just using vermiculite, which is readily available around here.

Oh, how much will you end up using?

Thanks guys,

Fabby, I have not seen any shrinkage as of yet, using a 5:1 mix because I already have CF underneath and I want a more solid base to render to since I am cladding my dome with copper and screwing the shingle to the dome. Average thickness is 2-3", you may have to double your vcrete thickness to get an equivalent insulation value of a CF blanket. If the mamma does not get her way with the dome, you could just pour the vermiculite (w/o portland) right over your dome in the enclosure. I am into my 3rd 4 cu ft bag, bought 4 but don't think I will need it. Running about 9-10 bucks a bag at a concrete block supplier.

Finished percrete today, going to let it set for a week or so to dry out before I render. All said and done the curved trowel was the key tool to keeping the shape. Ended up using 3.5 - 4 cu ft bags roughly 2-3" thick 5:1 ratio. Used a beer bottle as a blockout for the vent in the apex of the dome.
