timbrel vault -- details

The bricks are being cleaned of mortar spatter (some of the extra mortar shows our amateur status) with wire brush grinder attachments and acid concrete cleaner. There are details to ensure water control. At the exterior base of the vault, we are adding slope to the concrete, covering with flashing recessed into the brick wall, all buried under the ground. On the low side of the big and medium vault a masonry gutter directs water to the ground. The up hill slope will be planted in willow.
