Here are the 2 first pics of the underground gas route...

In the 1st pic, this is the kitchen and the bucket represents the rocket.
It is in between the 2 holes in the Wall.

In the 2nd pic, taken exactly from the other side, you can still partially see the bucket.
The 2 furrows are where the heat will be released on their way and back.

Now it is deeper, but we had to carve the rock.
At least this will be hold any weight!

The good news:

1) I have found pumice stone (that now I have to fetch here)

2) I have found someclay, cinnamon colored, and the truck should come on Monday.

Xisca : Looks Good ! I know this has been a great struggle, only made harder by your remote location, and major problems that have made importing anything very Costly
and almost impossible ! Keep up the good work, and send us more pictures ! Big AL

Allen thanks, and you summerize it perfectly.
The craziest part is that an American forum taught me that La Palma island had pumice...

As I cannot change my floor level, we will do the heated floor before the stove.

I still have unknown parts such as the compared cost between iron pipes and fire bricks for gases. Bricks can cost more but last more...
(according to the oxydisation problem)
 
This will take every ounce of my mental strength! All for a tiny ad:
