    Kyle's thread in the General Talk forum about "which kiln to build" was the repeated target of spam. We aren't sure why but there may be something technical about the thread itself so I locked it and am creating this thread for interested members to continue posting about the topic. Sorry for the inconvenience! Hopefully we can coninue without annoying and sometimes even pornographic spam posts! :thumb:

    I haven't answered this thread because it is about an industry that I know nothing about, but I think Kyle aought to repost his original question here in this thread so that new members who might have something to contribute don't need to bring the old thread back up to find out what he was asking.

    Thanks Russ,

    But I think I've gleaned all I can from the forum regarding a scratchbuild project.

    As it happens, I got distracted by building some mountains and doing my first "proper" ballasting.

    Wanna See?

    Originally,

    This thread got spamedalot.

    Thankfully, Ralph moved it. I had polled the forum as to the best way to enclose some lime kilns, and this was the general consensus;

    Now I've gotten busy and actually started a structure for the kilns.

    Pictured below is really no more than the skeleton of the building, as it will need siding and lots of detail.

    I got a couple close ups of this area because I think it needs a deck/overhanging addition. Ideas?
