Now the firebox is complete up to the subfloor level.  Getting the floor on the block base and the firebox level to match up is a bit of a takes some patience and a lot of bricking up and then moving bricks.  Once all of this is level then the floor is next!

The firebox is being laid in front of the block base that now has a layer of firebrick on top of it.
The aluminum foil is a moisture barrier between the block and brick and between the first layer of softbrick at the base of the firebox.

The block base has been laid in place for the kiln.  Next will come the brick and the firebox.

Shed is up

The shed for the wood kiln is now up and in place and withstood the big wind storm that blew through here two weeks ago.  Wasn't that a mighty storm!  Good thing is it provided my neighbor's pine tree for the wood pile.  What is 36 hours without power compared to wood for the kiln?
