That looking real good!
I wouldn't use steel in your insulation layer. It will only attract and transfer heat There a good chance once heated it will expand and crack the insulation as well.
If it can hold up the weight of an oven it will certainly do the task on those side walls I'm sure.
Regards Dave

Looks good. Wish I could get that much done between work commitments!

Is the plan to just put the vermimix between the blocks and the bricks to serve as a buttress? Are you planning any other insulation or is that enough?

Hi Mark,
That was the plan.I've been reassured this is more than adequate for the sides and back.
But for the dome,im going to wrap it in 2 layers of ceramic blanket and then 75 mm of vermimix to hold it together.

Quick question to anyone out there in the know.

I was wondering if anyone in Sydney has had any success in tracking down a clay chimney flue?So far online searches have come up empty so if anyone has any idea where i could get one,that would be great.
I'm wanting to build a brick chimney and would prefer a clay liner rather than a SS one.

Thanks guys,
John.

You dont need a clay liner, its a USA thing, brick flues work just as well with out it.

Unfortunately its not available and it really not required to build a brick chimney.... But it would be great to have a straight form to build a straight brick chimney to
I chickened out and kept mine low. Which I can cause its well away from houses.
