    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.

      Well, it's been a few weeks and we're finally done the stonework! Still have siding to finish etc but SO happy with the results! First pizza party was last night and I'm very impressed with the results! Only one minor issue with a pizza sticking but the others went fine.

        Blairt, there was a heck of a lot of work done between posts #46 and #47! It's like that joke flow chart that has a box in the middle stating "then a miracle occurs" That is truly one beautiful setup you have.

            Thanks guys. I couldn't have built the oven without the help of the good folks on this site! The last few weeks have been really busy - as you can tell! I confess that I hired professionals to do the stone work. I'm extremely pleased with their work and how the entire project has turned out. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment ahead!

              Well, it looks like something you'd see at a country lodge! I think our FB hosts have an oven picture contest - you should consider submitting some beauty shots
