  • Paper on the chicken wire for stucco igloo finish?

    I was wondering??? a friend was cautioning me not to just wrap chicken wire ontop of the fire blanket. He reccomended a wire/rebar cage and then paper then chicken wire. His point was to not weigh the insulation down with the weight of the stucco going through the chicken wire.


    Any thoughts/reccomendations on this subject?


    Here is a pic of progress so for, will post some better pictures soon.

    I put on some vermiculite/portland on top of the blanket/wire for added insulation. Then applied the stucco. To be honest, I don't think it will compress the blanket enough that you will sacrifice insulation.

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

      Skip the chicken wire. Just put the vermicrete and/or stucco directly on the blanket.
