Kiln Brick and Kiln Firing

I recently purchased kiln brick and have been hauling it to our farm. The photo above is our company we had while loading the brick-- a large flock of silkies! They crack me up.

First load of brick on the trailer. I know it does not look like much, but there's about 4,000 pounds on there!
I also loaded up a kiln yesterday for the Preserving Our Heritage Day this Saturday at Cedarock Farm. I packed it really tightly, so I am going to keep my fingers crossed for good results!
Loaded up and ready to go!

Nice trailer. I'm glad you found some bricks. What are you going to build?

I am plotting to build an Olsen fastfire for my first one. I've help fire a Pheonix fastfire a few times, and was not impressed by the loading design or the firing. I like the draft pattern for the Olsen and don't particular want direct ash. We'll see!
