1"-2" air space. Just butter the end of each flue and lay one on top of the other...no need to insulate here.

Capt, thanks for the encouragement. I have been working all day, (missing the final round of the Masters.......arrrgh!), and I literally was totally wiped. I mean, I "hit the wall"

But then, I closed up shop (its 4:00 pm here), cracked a beer, turned on the tele, fired up the computer.......and lo and behold, there was Capt to give encouragement. After a day where the "dome" kicked my ass, I needed that!:

I spent the day trying to get my arch done and the my daughter helped filling in the gaps on the dome.

YaKnow, Dijourna pizza probably would have fooled most people. I could have just had a 'picture' of a pizza oven in the back yard and snuck in some frozen stuff. Sure would have been a lot easier.
Capt likes this.

Looking good Fabby. I am at a similar stage of my build. It is good to close the dome and recharge. I think it would be less satisfying if the process was simple and all issues resolved. Sorting out how to make it happen with what you can source or have on hand is half of the challenge.

The beer earned after a big day working on the oven is some of the best beer I have enjoyed.

Cheers ............ Steve

Everytime your ready to quit for the day, just think how good those pies are gonna taste, and the aroma that will float through the neighborhood.......lol

Well, I snuck out of work early today, and was able to set up and mortar my outside arch. I did not clean the bricks up too much as I am planning on another decorative arch.

I still havent decided on what to use for an decorative arch. I do have some red bricks laying around, they dont match the brown bricks of my house tho.

I also have some thin stone leftover as well. There are so many great photos in the albums here, pretty fantastic.

Flabby....., sorry couldnt help it.

Youll have to sort out some way to secure the half bricks that the arch is springing from, if not and one moves itll all come down.

Brickie, I know I need to support the archs more. I would appreciate some help.

I was thinking of wrapping the sides with a layer of decorative brick, and then leaving a gap between the firebrick and decorative wall and filling this with concrete. This would secure the half bricks to the decorative arch. Does that sound OK?

Or how would you insulate the vent on the sides? Should I leave a two inch space and fill with vermiculite and concrete mix? Is that strong enough?
thanks for your help.

That would secure it for sure.

No real point insulating the oven where the flue sits as the inside of it is open to the atmosphere.
