The daft prick's gunna kill himself if he keeps lighting fires in his bunker. I wanted to know what it was like in there with a fire going, I lasted about 10 seconds, the smoke burnt the crap out of my lungs.
So I had a moment of genius, he could build a mud brick hearth, this was just a rough idea just to show him what I wanted him to do, I'll let him figure out the design. Yes I know I can't fucking draw.
Made the ol'boy some mud brick molds this afternoon.
Brick #1 turned out quite good. He reckons 4 days!
It would be easier to gather sticks and build a wattle and daub chimney. So long as the sticks are covered on the flue side with clay, it will be quite durable. Mud brick in that climate won't last long.
It's gunna be built inside his bunker so water wont be a problem, he's smashed a hole in the roof to let the smoke out, but it does little if not nothing. At least with a mud brick hearth, at least the smoke will be funnelled through the hole in the roof.
It's shit SS, just trying to make a bad situation better.
