Let me know if you need some pointers and I've got the door and arch templates if you want to borrow them.

Anyway bloody councils right!!
Did you get the material delivered? I had a quote of $280.00 to deliver it which seemed a bit steep. I assume yours is 1000mm internal diameter?

Thankyou for your very kind offer of borrowing the templates, I'll keep that in mind when I get to that stage. Ever since i broke ground on my build it's bloody rained! I'm still at the point of excavating at present...many tonnes of soil and sandstone still to move.

Any new pics from your build. I quite like how the tampered flute bricks look. You must be very pleased with yourself.

Ive borrowed my father-in-laws brazier to start getting the neighbours used to all the smoke!

Cheers

Bert

Bert,

I got my bricks & mortar from FFR delivered to Newcastle for $100.

I found a local courier (just around the corner from work) and they picked them up for me when they didn't have a load back to Newcastle. I had to wait over a week until they were empty and pay cash but it seem that it was worth it if I saved about $180!
