The first chamber is all done except casting the "key", and casting the seam between the main arch and the back arch.Here is a close up of the top of the first chamber. The mortar joints tend to get pretty big at the top of the kiln, so I pounded in some scrap pieces of brick to keep the joints from contracting.
Christy's parents were here this weekend, and they were able to help us pull out the second arch form. We should be able to start work on the third arch fairly soon!
Christy's Dad put windows and doors in our studio space, and Christy and her mother sanded the floor of our "new to us" house. The hope being that we can move into the house shortly after it arrives. Lots to do before winter.
