Default Enclosure Walls

Last night we put up the closet in the back and the back and side wall. We set the ridge board and tonight if we get to play we will put some Durorock on the inside to cut the corners behind the dome against the back of the closet which will shorten the distance between the 2 so we don't have to use so much vermiculite. There is approx 12" and that is just too much waste.
After that the rafters might be going up as well.

Suprised you went with wood rather than metal studs? If insulated well, obviously its unlikley that any heat at all will ever make it to the wood...but since the cost isn't much of a difference, why not just go with metal and you'll never have to wonder or worry about it?

We have 6" plus of vermiculite going in and in the back we put durorock behind the wood framing because we had over 12" of space and didn't want to waste vermiculite. We are going to have a gable vent to vent out any humidity build up. Not really worried about the heat affecting the wood. The other reason is we work with wood a lot better and faster.

That's a good point. Working with the metal studs is a pain. You're right, as long as the unsulation is good...no probelms with the wood.

Saw your eating center. Beautiful job!!!!!!!!! You west coasters have the advantage of not getting beat upon by the weather. Here in New England we have to cover our gas grills on our deck once winter comes and move our entertaining inside. Right now we are curing the oven and putting on the roof at the same time so we can start cooking. It is difficult not to just start cooking immediatly but when you consider all the hard work that goes into this project you don't want to damage the integrity of this baby.

I think Mr. G's wood frame will be just fine.

As for steel vs wood - When I first started with steel studs I ran into the learning curve. Once I got the hang of them, they are a snap. Many times faster than wood. I just put together the frame for our outdoor kitchen with steel. I've never built anything that fast.

When you make a mistake with wood studs, good luck getting the nails out. Metal? Unscrew 4 screws, correct the mistake and reattach. 5 minutes max. Great for us amateurs

That's true...one of the few reasons I'm still living here is the near perfect weather. However, every once in a while we get a freak storm in the winter. Check out the pic below from this last winter. I had just grouted my counter tops the day before this storm. Ended up freezing and cracking everything. Had to grind out the grout and do it again. What a pain.

Also, I know exactly what you mean about tryign to remain patient. Once I could cook in my oven...the bulding process slowed down to a crawl.

We are planning on our first pizza Labor Day. We will have our roof on and shingled and hopefully the stucco. We would like to have the bottom stone up and all the rest of the trim and landscaping by apple picking in the fall. We don't want to get lazy now.....although it would be easy. Our wives will keep us grounded. How easy is it putting up a metal roof and what is a typical cost? My Old Kentuck Dome has a great looking oven and roof.
