This kiln is taking me forever to load, I may very well be the slowest kiln loader in the world though. I have the back two stacks done and the smaller shelves near the flu. When I was designing this kiln I originally was going to have only 3 12x24 shelves deep. I acquired a bunch of 10x20 shelves and by slightly modifying the chamber I was able to use them and gain several cu. ft. of stacking space with a minimum of extra brick expense. They are the shelves on the bottom right in the photo. That area is a bit awkward to fill but I kind of like the idea of making pots to fill that specific area, maybe some tall bottles or something.
