    This was the first fire as I gradually dried things out.

    Thought I would add on some more pics as I didn't show the completed project!

    I am planning a build on denman island but having difficulty sourcing ceramic fiber board. Did you have any luck?

    Thanks for the reply. I am planning on 3 layer of 1" ceramic blanket followed by 10:1 perliteortland cement. I like your idea of the funnel! I'm going to try and interoperate that idea and will post some pics. Thanks!

    found your build thread, indeed you using a metal pipe and not flue liner )
    it looks like your stand does not allow for very think cladding around the dome. be sure you don't skimp on at least some sort of insulation, ideally blankets, even if it means it will be overhanging. the metal mesh should support the relatively lightweight layer of peri\Vermicrete on top of the blanket.

    the view from your yard though... wow.

    good luck!

    I ended up using an exercise ball to support the final layers. I covered the outside with refractory concrete to seal any holes and increase the thermal mass (rightly or wrongly!)

    Once the key stone was in we removed the ball and thankfully the whole thing didn't collapse..

    Looking at how the chimney will fit. (only 6" double walled).

    Finally the dome got started. The weather is now better than in December and we can see the view!

    We spent a lot of time doing the framing for the countertop. I had seen a few where the boards got pushed out during pouring!

    Cinder blocks going in!

    We figured out all the spacing ahead of time. I used graph paper to figure out where to put the rebar.
