Finally! I'd set myself a goal of being finished laying brick before the end of the month and the start of haying. Done!
Thank goodness for pictures. I've had to refer to the pics of the disassembly to remind me how to put it back together. Then I looked at the dates on those photos. June 23, 2010 Auvery and I and our great friend Jeff started tossing bricks off a roof and into a stock trailer. It took five trips up to Gibbons to bring everything back and only two more years to clean it all up and put it back together. Crazy!
Here's a little slideshow showing the process.

I'm so glad to be done scraping bricks. I don't know how many bricks there were (if anyone wants to figure it out using the pictures, please let me know what you figure out) but that knife is considerably shorter than when I started.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that the kiln is done. I still have to do some iron work for the lid but it's pretty much done. Now when I go to the studio I can start to think about pots again. Weird.
I'll finish with some random brick pics.

I really liked the way you highlighted some really important and significant points. In this post you say good things come in small packages.
