  1. Beautiful vaulted brick construction!!! I only can dream to be skilled enough to create anything like this. Very cool!

    1. I really need to get more detailed on the process. It is hard but easier than you think once you get the idea. Easy but slow. The groin cuts and placement are very tedious.

    1. this one the ground floor has vaulted ceiling and floor on top.
      not sure what you mean 'how much do you do on the ground'. mark the groin pieces and cut on the scaffolding.

  6. By the question 'how much do you do on the ground', I meant to ask, How much surface area is there in the lowest floor / the ground floor ?
