The difference between a successful person and others is not the lack of strength, nor the lack of knowledge… but rather, the lack of will power.

Hi All,
time for an update on the landing and vent transition.
finished the outer entry arch and have started to do the vent transition.
very happy with the arch .and although it looks ok It will all be covered over with a decorative arch later on.
As for the vent transition , a small problem arised but thanks to the input from previous forums I was able to overcome them.
I had intended to fill the space between the inner and outer arches with out thinking of how they would be supported. in the end I came up with the following solution as the photos show.This leaves me with an opening of
12" x 6.5". I will be using a 6" stainless steel flue so I need to close this up to 6.5" x 6.5".next problem is running out of firebricks.The Decrative arch and sides of entrance will be old red clay bricks , so i might just finish of with these.
regards Gary

hi all, time for an update
With the weather not helping I finally got time to do the chimney transition.
I was going to use 6' SS flue but found this 6" clay pipe so decided to use it instead.Still need to finish putting the top coat on the inside of the pipe to allow a conical smoke guide up the pipe.see photo 3 to understand.first coat is a bit cracked as weather came in and did not get back to keep it moist.
I will be doing a deco arch and brick chimney stack .
question???
what is the mix ratio vercilimite/cement for the insulating coat over the insulating blanket?

regards Gary

ps getting close to that first fire

been a while so for those that are interested here's a quick update.
I have done a series of curing fires starting at 250 degrees and slowly built up over 5 days to 500 degrees. Each fire was going for 7 - 8 hours.
And yes a couple of minor "expansion joints" appeared but nothing to lose sleep over.Finished the chimney and deco arch.have put the F/B insulation and vercilimite over top. Next is to run a series of fires to cure the miosture from this and then cover with a stucco finish.
Also managed to cook a meal when doing the curing fires.
next is to finish the work benches.
