the other option is to vent it at the back , I had a look at the framing under my oven which I havent taken out and has been there a year or so and it seems to fine.I am not disputing that the wood doesnt stand up to the elements, I am just trying to think of other options to tearing it all down. Getting those masonry nails out of the concrete aint going to be easy!

would painting or staining the wood help. I know there is a product you can buy in a spray can that is used to spray on cut areas of treated pine effectively re-treating it. I don't know how good it is but Bunnings sell it.
Perhaps biting the bullet and re doing it is better option as it'll give you peace of mind. If money isn't an issue that'll be what I'ld do.

OK, first thing.. DON"T PANIC! It's not the end of the world. It'll be fine. I bet that cement board will hold up most everything even if a piece rots out.. which will take time. Get it as leak proof as possible, install some vents of some sort, and keep baking!! Good luck!

Is it just if it gets wet constantly or does it just rot over time with moisture in the air? because once its all bricked in with a concrete top, which will be supported by the bricks not the wood structure, it wont be getting rained on.

It's not the moisture in the air or the leaking of water inside the frame. The issue is the concrete will wick the moisture to the pine and after a while rot out the wood. Treated should always be used against the concrete or a moisture barrier placed. It looks like you just nailed down the frame to the concrete It won't take much to pry the entire unit up as one piece. Then I would use a vinyl flashing material underneath. Really an easy fix at this point. Then just re-fasten it down.

If I go to the trouble of prying the whole thing up I might as well scrap it.
How long will it take to rot?
Im not a happy camper at this point in time i can tell you!

True it wicks from moisture in the concrete and good building practice calls for treated and it will rot and it will take time not going to rot overnight though it will take years depending on moisture and if ther is a vapor barrier under the existing slab humidity etc...
