It depends on the manufacturer, but typically between 2 and 2.75 inches. It sounds like a ring of bricks underneath your walls would put it at exactly the right height.

Yeah a ring of fire bricks sounds like the way to go.

If you don't have many to cut a diamond blade on an angle grinder will suffice.

hey guys, sorry i haven't checked in for a while, it has been raining cats and dogs here for the last 3 weeks straight and I haven't been able to take out the dome from under the carport.

I got the castable from WESCO in Mansfield TX (Forth Worth area)
here is their website link.
Castables

they are super friendly and very helpful, i had a ton of questions for them and they took the time for me.

they also can UPS the bags for ya since they are 50lb sacks.

I have all my bricks and mixes ready to go...it just has to stop raining.
