...or so a wise friend once told me! By that metric I am done the deconstruction of the kiln.
I took down the stack, down the the level of the shed roof. I stopped there because I am going to need some pallets to put the soft brick on, rather than the wet ground; and also because it seemed like a good place to stop. I am not crazy about heights, so I am relieved to get all the roof-of-the-shed work out of the way.
- Get some pallets! I think Portland Pottery has some, or sometimes hardware stores give them away; in a pinch I could always buy pallets
- Take down the rest of the stack
- Borrow some post jacks to jack the arch form up under the arch. I need to lift the weight of the brick so I can remove them without destroying them.
- After that it's just brick by brick until only the angle iron frame is left. That'll be fun, getting that to the dump.
