Default Re: my summer project begins.

I have been pretty busy of late, hence I haven't posted for a while. Here are some photos to show progress. I decided to use the "I" shaped blockwork. THis really makes alot of sense. It mean your timber storage is not so deep you cannot see the back and I do not fancy crawling in with my ample rump on display to guests should I need to get a little extra firewood. It also bade framing for the concrete pour easier as there is something to fix to everywhere you need.

Now that I am up to laying the hearth bricks, any words of wisdom or warning would be appreciated.

All things taken into consideration I am pretty happy with the way things came out, apart from some of the top surface of the concrete was destroyed by over watering whilst the concrete was curing, but as I am looking to grind the concrete this really doesn't matter too much.

Look forward to the replies from you all - Cheers Andy

Your oven is a barrel design?

Looks like a dome to me based on his pencil marks on the bricks. I can't tell from the pics but is that CaSi with concrete around it with no concrete under it?. If so, I am not sure how the ca si will support the floor bricks and dome.

Hi Utah,

I was concerned with that concrete pour too, first one of that nature that I've seen here. I didn't notice toe pencil marks, most people round their ceramic or cal-sil board as a template.

did it as a flat placement of hebel - reinforced. There is concrete poured underneath and the whole thing has reinforcing grid within the concrete pour to add stability. Note that I have also used an I shape of block work (instead of the usual h shape) so that there is blockwork supporting through the centre of the whole hearth.

Yes it will be a dome. I have laid out the bricks so I can cut them accurately. This weekend will tell me how accurately - long weekend - progress to be made I hope.

Any questions sing out - I will try and answer them, comments welcomed - nobody is infallable - cheers Andy
