Sauna updates - ceiling and heat shield

more updates on the sauna, which started with this post

The ceiling started going in, with a vapor barrier above it (which is really just a bit of a drip stopper plan).  Those are cedar fence boards from the lumber yard. 

As the roof was getting done, I started prepping for the cement board and heat shield installation, and thought I'd throw a little more heat shielding onto the studs: 

Here's the cement board - my 'non-flammable material', layer 1: 

Ceiling got done. Later got a piece of trim at the ridge line. 

A round wood post went in to hold up the center of the 'high bench' so it can take a lot of weight: 

And after the corrugated metal went in (non-flammable material, layer 2) I set down an old piece of granite counter top and got the little stove in.  
Now to go get the chimney parts, and figure out how I'm going to cut a chimney hole.

"Thank heavens for cedar, right? There's no other wood quite like it if you ask me: the way it smells, its absorbency and yet it's also so durable. I love the round support post too. What a great little detail.

Nice little stove too. Is that what you're planning on heating the sauna with?"

Won't stop coming up onto the patio.
