Dome Insulation
Hello All,
Just looking for advice on the dome insulation ratio. verm. to crete.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Dome Insulation
The dome vermicrete doesn't have to be as strong as the hearth vermicrete and will probably be subjected to greater heat, both arguments in favor of a higher ratio. Some people have gone as high as 12:1. 8:1 is more normal. I did some 8:1 and some 10:1. Worked fine.

Re: Dome Insulation
Thank you for the response 8-1 sounds good so I think I will go w/ that.
