Default Kenny's 36'' Pompeii in Scotland

Hi all,

Finally got round to taking a few pics. Had a dry run with the floor and first couple of courses, cut half bricks using a hammer and chisel, will need a bit more finesse when it comes to smaller / more detailed cuts.

When setting the floor level does it matter if I just use dry sand rather than fireclay/sand/water mix? Floor sitting on 4" of Vermicrete

Made my indespensible tool today, next task is to discover how to post pics

regards,
Kenny

for pics I would use a service like image shack, and when you upload let it resize them to 800,600 or something more forum friendly, then use .[img] tags arround the url it gives and bobs your uncle pictures in the thread

I always add my photos by using the "Post reply" then "manage attachments" and select the photos by browse and upload.. This isn't working for you?

Inner arch pics, I used a wooden form and there is a triangle of brick hidden behind the mortar on the larger couple of joins.
