Kiln, 12-08-09

These two sets of pictures show the areas I am working on. The first two pictures show the side buttressing wall as I am starting to build it up. The material I am pouring into the void is a clay type soil mixed with rice hulls. I am hoping to get a mixture that when dry will be full of holes so as to impede the transfer of hot air. Kind of like a clay based soft brick.

The pictures from the third one on show the final pouring of the first form-up of the chimney. From this point I will build the chimney portion up. The portion between the kiln and the main stack of the chimney won’t go any taller, it will only get a hard brick cover.
