    I decided that I'd do a render coat. I have six 4-foot bags of vermiculite. I used 3 to coat the dome to this point. The remaining 3 I'll pour straight over the dome once I build the doghouse walls. My thought is that I need to remove my portable shed covering in order to build my walls and roof and to allow room for my mason to build the chimney so I might as well get the insulation protection layer on the dome now. I've got a pro doing the chimney in a finishing brick and stone finish. He starts once we get the walls built which will hopefully be in early April. I did put a ceramic rope heat break between the inner arch and the outer archway.
