Correct.

Thanks Brickie - Only had a cursory look at that site so far but will scour it later this evening. It certainly is comprehensive.

I built the front arch today and it is isolated with stainless RHS so it is freestanding. I have room to buttress the straight sides. Any advise about how far up I would need to go?

As you can see, I am know little of bricklaying. I have a newfound respect for that trade. My previous experience with bricks was contemplating their use as a projectile. Somehow the dome was different, sorta like stacking rather than laying. Easier to build a heap than a straight wall.

Anyway, this is my progress picture and I now have a shiny stainless flue pipe ready to go. Can nearly smell the smoke!

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

Are you going to add a decorative brick front at all?

I think I will need to to tidy things up after I buttress the arch. Best I can work out I need provide support up to the brick the arch rests on. That will leave it a bit chunky out front.

I have some red bricks that are as hard as nails and thought about doing something with them. A veneer of some sort. I don't have any experience in decorative brickwork. Might have to look through some more pics for inspiration.

The flue pipe has improved the look of things as well. Reasonably priced at a local sheet metal shop at $85 for 1 metre of 8" stainless.

The bricks stacked up on the side of the entry are dry run thinking about shoring up the arch.

I would welcome any suggestions.

Cheers......... Steve

A lesson learned. After much agonising I dismantled the arch and started again with pillars at the entry that will handle the arch, adequately I think.

All part of the journey, a small detour.

Version 2 looks better anyway.

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

MK 2 ..... I like it,its balanced both in its buttressing strength and the " low line" of the front . I think it will work well with the slim steel chimney.

Thanks Dave - Now that's sorted it is onwards and upwards again. Just got advice that the ceramic blanket material has arrived at the place you recommended. Might go get it on Friday.

In the meantime it is perfect weather for drying things here at the moment and perfect for chasing a fish and crab while the oven dries some.

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

The ultimate arch! Just found a load of creative wood stacking pics.

Version 2 looks a lot better, did you cheat and wedge the arch for in to hold it and just take down the side bricks?
I would have......
