Looks great! You've even have a nice supply of wood!

Any pictures of the top/roof? How did you seal it?

@PizzaIdiot - I don't have a photo from above but it's actually 3 large slate paving stones (a stylish dark bluestone) that we cut to size and joined with mortar between the stones. A few days later I then sealed the joins with an outside sealant just incase water sat on the roof and slowly seaped through the mortar over time

Beautiful job and you'll be very popular with the neighbours no doubt!

I would have thought you could find all sorts of interesting old brick flues and flue caps etc. in London from building demolitions? Or reproductions for that matter.

Same with a door if you wanted one? I see quite a few on eBay.fr from wood burning ovens with the appropriate curved top. Not cheap though!

Thanks! I have indeed been very popular with the neighbours. I didn't think of a reclaimed flu (D'oh!) but have just had a door made at a local blacksmiths. Cost a tiny 10 - very happy.

Have been doing lots of finishing work - BBQ on side, marble work surface, patio etc last few weeks - so will post some pictures when it's all complete.
