Default 36" build in Tallahassee - AKA Bruce's Folly

Well the build is underway. I ended up having the foundation laid out and poured by a concrete company along with a pad to park my van and some repair of the driveway. It turned out to be a good choice as there was no way I could have physically handled the task or have done nearly as good a job. I decided to take advice received in a previous thread and filled in the walls with additional cinderblock topped by 4 layers of cement board. I used surface bonding cement on the inside surface of the outer wall and plan to to the same to the outside once the angle iron is placed to span the front opening (every 8"). The angle iron had to be ordered and should be delivered tomorrow. Once the hearth is finished, I expect to be asking for lots of advice as I set out the final layout and actually begin work on the dome. Thanks again for all your help so far. I am attaching a few pics of my work so far.

The cinderblock caught up to me and I hit the wall physically a few days ago. Just as well the angle iron didn't get delivered,until yesterday. I primed and painted the angle iron and notched the cinderblock. Don't have the energy to work on spreading the surface bonding concrete. Part of polio/post polio is the fatiguability of muscles and lack endurance. I'm happy with my progress so far.

Dave, thanks for the encouragement. I am trying to pace myself and today will try and cover the blocks in the storage area with the surface bonding cement. I was going to cover each layer of the cement board as well, but am now thinking it will be easier to simply use screws. Looking forward to actually starting on the oven. Thanks again.

Thanks Dave,
Plans beyond the dome are not fixed. I brought back CF board and blanket from Jacksonville (about 150 miles/244 km) a few weeks ago. I have enough board for 4"/10 cm under the floor. The only firebrick available locally is the Whitacre-Greer light duty.

At this point I am considering a 18" x 12" (46 x 30cm) rectangular entry, mostly to make the insulated door easier to fabricate. Current plan is to finish the oven as an igloo. I am wide open to suggestions, especially regarding vent and chimney.

At what point in the build do outer entry, vent, and chimney need to be finalized?
Bruce

Productive day. Worked on the stand and fastened the layers of cement board together.

Productive it is! What are you plans for the door I noted that you planning to built a door and that I'd influence by a rectangular opening?
Your plans also for the transition and chimney are going to influence your set back from the front as well. So it would be well to think of them now. My quess at this stage is that it should be shorter rather than deep.
And yes I did notice that you have made to stand hieght to suit your chair!
Regards dave

Way to go Bruce,

Been following you build closely and admire you getting in there getting your hands dirty. Not bad looking bread and pizzas from a BBQ? Be sure to ask alot of questions from the forum on your propose square entry. There are some issues mixing angle iron and brick due to thermal expansion differences. I did an arch so I am no expert here so ask the guys and gals on the board. Good Luck.
