Putting the Boiler and the Firebox together


Finally we have craned the boiler onto the firebox....


It fits on top perfectly!


And we have lined the firebox with "special" insulating concrete on the floor and "special" rock wool on the sides....


This shows how the base of the boiler looks inside the firebox:


And this shows a closeup of the boiler base. It doesn't leak a drop! (The boiler has been full of water for a week). You can see the sky through the one of the tubes that is straight on.....


Moreover, we have acquired an excellent trailer to carry this contraption (no photos yet)... First Steam cannot be far away!





Next you can read here about the first time we built the fire....
