I have finished up the insulation on my kiln and added the vents. This video covers that process.  Thought you guys would enjoy my journey on this build.



Since I shot this footage I have finished the inside and painted it with the aluminum paint. That stuff was a mess to apply!
Working on the doors today, hope to have a load in by next weekend.

Not sure if you've got a better way, but cam lock door latches work exceptionally well to tightly close and seal the doors.
