If you got 750 go for it and get it to temp, it takes a lot more than you would think the first couple times.
You want it completely happy or there may be some movement yet resulting in more cracks...
I made two render coats and hopefully have all the minor cracking out of the way so the last two can go on.
I will be posting soon on both the build threads.
It finally warmed up here but now have only had four days or so in a row without rain.
I will do more fires, and cook in it, the 2nd coat will be the final coat, or maybe the 3rd/finish coat will be the finish, i wont paint the stucco just yet, but the cracking definetly has taken place, and even if there is more cracking the insulation plays as the expansion joint. So the stucco wont see the crack from the dome cracking anymore.
