I though you had left both your floor and the space between your floor and your soldier course without mortar.

You are correct... sorry for the confusion! I should have specified the dome and arches.

Thanks Ken. I ordered two bags of refmix yesterday from FB and it is sitting on my porch already today! I'm hoping that if I make most of the joints narrow enough that two bags may be enough mortar. I'll find out soon enough as I am anxious to get started.

After a spell of cold weather, rain, and work I was finally able to finish my chimney transition today... And that also completes the oven!

Next task is to start assembling insulation, studs, and enclosure materials. Tomorrow I head out to the sheet metal roofing places and look at roofing material.

I'm going to give the vent a good week or two to cure before starting to play with fire.

You have much more patience than me Ken! I didn't wait long enough.. But (and James would agree) cracks add character!


I was wondering what you have been up to, and now I see.

The vent looks great!

A question for you though:
What size is the opening on the transition?
I need to go bigger.....
But I am just not sure how!

I will be anxiously waiting for fire pictures.

Man thats a nice transition. I didn't have the patience to lay bricks for mine. I'm trying not to rush, but I'm anxious to be done. Its a shame you're gonna cover up all that fine work with an enclosure.

I considered casting or doing some sort of metal work, but in the end the bricks were actually the easiest for me. It really didn't take long at all. Most of it was spent waiting for dry warm weather to get out and do it.

Dave,

My transition starts out underneath the arch and is pretty much the width of the arch, then slants upward to the top of the arch where it's about a half brick deep by about 13" wide (5 bricks on edge)



The transition is simply a square brick box with an 8"x8" interior sitting on top of it. I cut the lower bricks in wedge shapes to conform to the arch. Easy.

Will it work?? Beats me! I've never built one of these before.

Ken what kind of pipe is that? What is the reasoning behind using a steel chimney as opposed to making it all out of brick? Still looking great by the way.

Ken - are you planning on solidifying the sides of your arch? We have a very similar situation. If we load the top of the arch, the force is pretty much going horizontal. I have a concern it might "blow" the wall. Before I build my entire vent, I was going to build up the sides. Whats your thought?

Fantastic job on your vent by the way, looking good!

Les...
