James....i don't remember exactly what the grout line max size was but mine are 3/16. And as egalecki stated it is a tad pricey but i believe its worth the extra cost.

Went and did my homework and refreshed my memory. The product is called Spectralock and is made by a company named Laticrete. Its a sanded grout so it can be used in wider grout lines.In a small line like an 1/8 inch it will be a courser texture because of the sand. The product information is at LATICRETE® International > Home

Ken,

I've started my oven (and my thread)...

What did you finally decide to use to coat your board with to prevent water issues. I got the Iso board and want to pour concrete around it (halfway up) then colored concrete the rest of the way and over the top (hope that makes sense). Basically I'll pour concrete all around my hearth to make it level with thefire brick entrance. I didn't want the board to suck out all of the water so I wanted to put something on it like a sealer.

Let me know.

Thanks
Dick

Dick,

I haven't had a chance to do any more work yet. But when I pour my concrete up against the insulation board, I plan on using some Saran wrap to keep the concrete and board separate. Simple and easy.

Ken, just curious, how do you intend to "attach" this concrete to the hearth? Just an acid wash, or something more mechanical? I may run into this same situation with mine. If you had to do it over again, would you pour this concrete at the same time as your hearth, or add some rebar sticking up?

The idea (borrowed from others, of course) is to try to grab as much smoke leaving the oven and give it an easy way to flow up to the chimney. I made some 45deg cuts on the outer vent arch bricks. The next set of arch bricks will have similar cuts continuing the 45deg angle up to the top of the vent

Hi Ken, what is the size of your opening vent? I like the way you modeled it...thinking to copy it, happy with that kind of transition?...thanks

Daren,

I think an acid wash would be enough. There shouldn't be much stress on this part and it will be sealed from moisture.

Someone posted that they drilled holes in the hearth and dropped short pieces of rebar in. That seems like a good idea.

Another thought I have is to drill several small holes in the foundation and screw in some TapCon concrete screws, leaving them sticking up about an inch. Sort of like mini rebar. I think they would keep the landing from shifting if the new concrete doesn't adhere to the hearth.

Probably not. I had NO idea how I was going to finish this out. My plan changed a half dozen times before I poured the hearth, and it's changed another dozen times since the pour .

Carlo,

I'm out of town for the next several days so I can't measure. You can probably estimate fairly closely by counting bricks. I think the top of the opening is around 12 inches wide. The width is exactly a half brick. The vent box above it then tapers it down to an 8" square for the Duratech mount.

I didn't worry too much about measurements when building it. I just did it so it "looked" right . Works great.

Ken, why not aluminum foil so just in case some heat will escape will not burn the plastic film...
