Excavation Complete, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

On Monday Jerry pulled the sand out and we came over to check it out. I was surprised at what a difference it made, and I'm still not sure how to explain it. Somehow having the big empty space inside makes the whole thing so much more beautiful, intriguing, appealing....full of potential?
Jerry is itching to get a fire going in there, but it really makes sense to wait a few days, to let the air dry it out more. We don't want any big cracks, and too much steam escaping from too wet cob could certainly make them. I've seen a few very sad photos. So patience is called for.
But I did stick a candle in there! That was cool.
