Matt,
Last night I setup a floodlight and put some vermicrete in my thermal break.
Might play around with pencil and tape measure over the next couple of nights on the square transition.
Last oven flue was easier as it sat outside the facia and I just bracket off that......also the transition was a bit rough and it cracked, but didn't really move as such.

No worries will post pics as I progress.

Sharkey,

That's understandable with yours. You have had some much rock to cut through and move. You should get a job over in the mines!!!

Damo,

Sounds good mate that should allow you to get a bit more done in faster time. I am not going to use vericrete in my thermal break. I have about a 2-3mm gap between the bricks that I am going to fill with this stuff. It was recommended to me by Lee at Field Furnace. Should help with momement between the arch and dome with different expansion rates.

Cheers,

Matt

The next day I pulled out the formwork and cleaned up the inside of the arch.

I decided to whack on a rough coat of render (high temp motar) to the dome. The outside of the dome was a bit rough as I had halved all the bricks with a hammer and bolster. I think it might be better to have nice smooth contact with the insulation blanket.

Hopefully have the chimney on this weekend and then I will start curing fires

Is it the camera angle or are those bricks in the entry arch extra long? I can hear brickie shaking his head but having no knowledge about bricks generally it is a genuine question.

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

Hey Steve,

Yes you are right they are extra long bricks designed specifically for the entry. They are 345mm long.

Cheers,

Matt

That's a relief. Can cancel the appt. to get the eyes checked. Your oven looks good! You are getting near the tasty part and the reward for the labours.

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

Finally got a bit more time to work on the oven.

Finished the brick work for the chimney transition. Spent most of the day cutting bricks and then an hour to slap them together. I am pretty happy with how it looks. Hopefully it flows ok...

I whacked the chimney in position just to see how it would look. I am waiting for the brickwork to dry out before I mount it.

Well with the chimney sitting there I couldn't resist lighting a small fire to see how it would draw

Worked like a charm!!!
