This TN Summer heat is rough here in July, having said that me and my dad were able to get the kiln under roof this week and the sheathing applied. I hope this weekend to finish boxing everything and start on the insulation and vents.  My goal is to have it finished by July 31. Here is the next video I have made in this series. This one covers me and my dad building the structure. Also for you guys that have built Nyle L53 Kiln chambers how high did you make the ceiling? Mine is around 8ft 6 on one end due to it being a lean to and I am thinking about doing a small drop ceiling making it around 7ft 10in.

The inside dimensions of my kiln are 10ft deep and 11ft wide.

I am looking at a kiln down the road. What was your cost doing the building not including the concreate pad.  I can get a insulated refer stainless or aluminium shipping container for $7900.00  landed in my yard the only thing is, its 40 ft. One could close off half. Then if in the future open it up to a larger unit. or another 50 if that would work. Would set it up like Yellowhamer did with his tracks and carts.
Great post.

Great post.

Mine was built with a wooden floor over top of an existing concrete pad. Not sure on total cost much, I dread adding it up when i am finished.
