The straight brick cannot fall out due to the tapered joints, its just impossible.

Post a pic anyone if its happened.

Fabby - on your arch, it looks good - but I think you want the length of the bricks on the end to be staggered so that you can tie in the front part of your arch.

I was trying to visualize how to tie in the vent and front arch. I have some half bricks that I was planning to notch the arch bricks to span the sides. Not sure if I can do this or not.

Does that seem like it will work?

I was planning on using some terra cota rectanglular vents to make a chimney. 9"x 12" is what they stock. Is that too big? Will terra cota hold up OK and handle the temps?

I would try to use full bricks on either end, no notch cuts - and use two bricks tying together either end of your vent opening. you want a good bond between what is essentially two arches standing side by side. If the bond between them breaks your front arch becomes freestanding. you can also tie together across the top with your rectangle-->flue transition

oh, and terracotta works fine. Many builders use that. Do a search and you will fine examples. 9 x 12 will work, it just may be a little large for the vent in terms of looks. I have seen builders cut them down by cutting down the middle and removing a few inches of vent, then mortaring back together in order to have a more reasonably sized flue

Thank you. That really answers a lot of my questions.

Regarding the chimney, what would be the ideal size, my masonry supply said that they can order other sizes in terracota if I needed.

Fabby,

Do you need vermiculite for insulating the dome?? (either vermicreting it igloo-style or filling the doghouse with loose) I just picked up bulk vermiculite and have waaaay more than I need for my vermicrete base and loose fill in the dog house....I probably have 20-25cu ft....maybe more. willing to let it go for what I paid maybe even a bit cheaper...I m in richmond.

Sclancy, thanks for the offer. The wife hasn't decided on an igloo or enclosed style yet. I was tentatively planning on wrapping with blankets and building an enclosure, but the cost of the blankets here in Richmond are 80-90ea, and I would need 3.

So you are just loose fill in your enclosure? What was the pricing on the product?

What is the link to your build?

cheers, fabby

Fabby,

Here is the link to my build -

http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...ven-18498.html (Richmond new outdoor kitchen pizza oven build)

I am doing a 47" modular oven (not FB). The vermiculite is quite a bit cheaper than blanket whether you go igloo or doghouse. You can have 1/2 the product for $100. It will be way more than you need.

I am going to do a steel stud house over mine covered with cement board and veneer stone to match my base. I will simply pour the loose fill into the house and fill it up so I have at least 6-10" sides/top of my dome. close up the house and done....

here is a pic of how much extra i have...it is about 4'x4'x3'
