This site is from here in New Zealand but has anyone done this? Lots of wind here in the Wairarapa so most of the time this would work really well.

Good morning from NZ, first post. Great forum here, a lot of my questions have already been answered but (of course) I have a few left.

The inner liners of water heaters here are made of corrugated copper and since copper melts at almost 2000 deg F, could I use this for the
barrel? It could be polished and left to patina over time and would add to the appearance. The one I have is 30 gallons and plan on building
a 6in model.

I have loads of older red brick available to me a .50-$1.00 each but fire brick can cost $20 each, so the question is can I use red brick if I am
willing to replace them from time to time? How long do you think they would last used 6-7 months a year in a moderate climate?

If the bricks do crumble after time in the tunnel do you need to redo the COB to replace or has someone here found a trick to replace them
through the feed opening?

Thanks in advance, Paul
