Default Re: Render In Australia

I used 3 20kg bags of a Bunnings generic pre mixed render and added color and about 1kg of extra lime per bag as advised..well I decided on the amount of extra lime everything is looking good at the moment, just not liking this week of drying period.

Hey Mark,

Oxide is the powdered color you can add to cement or render,Not sure what you guys in the States call it?

Rodney,
If you insulate between the outer brick arch and the hearth/dome, then the arch doesn't get hot and resultant expansion cracks don't occur. Probably a bit late to change it now. Try some flexible acrylic over where the cracking has occured.

David,
My render only comes as far as the back of the front arch not like Marks that comes right over the front arch. I don't have any cracking problems so far and I have had some decent fires going.

Sounds like you're good to go. Forget about the building and concentrate on the cooking and eating !
