Default Hello from Bathurst, Australia

Hi Everyone,
Been trolling the forum for a while now, collecting ideas and materials. Planning on a 42" Pompeii from largely reclaimed and recycled materials. Must say the thought of the top of the dome and the chimney transition are causing me some worries but I imagine I will get there in the end.
Love all the pics people take, as they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I will post some soon.
Got my spot picked out in the yard, and finally convinced hubby that bigger is better
cheers for now,
Rosemary

Welcome rosemary,
If you haven't already look at Lburou's thread on treasure troves in the newbie section. Here you will see some of the best documented "dome" builds. Good luck.

Thanks for the welcome Russell. I have seen the treasure trove post.

Checked with council today just need to send in a plan and an exempt development application to comply with state regulations. Shouldn't be to hard though my drawing skills will be tested I am sure.

As I mentioned I have started collecting materials and have chosen my site. Here are some pictures. ....... Once I work out how to load them?????

R,

Click on "Go Advance" then under "Additional Options" click on "Manage Attachments". The Moderator may restrict the number of pictures for a few post, normally 3-4 are the max number per post.

Terriffic build site! Make sure to position the oven so that you don't block your view over that valley.

Okay so the bricks in the background of the third photo above are recycled from a furnace, and just found out this arvo that it was used to heat water so should be fine to use. Most are stamped with a 'W' on one side. They are pretty heavy and measure 9" x 4.5" x 3" approx.
We will definitely trying not to bock the view, but we did want to see the flames from the house.

Is that "flue transition chamber" made of stainless because it looks pretty rusty.

That's important too. I have a corner build adjacent to our deck and if I'd known how cool it was to watch the flames inside the oven, I would have turned my oven by 20 or 30 degrees to give us a better view. As it is, we can see the glow but the inside of the oven is just out of sight. Still loving it!
