Looking good JP! What size are you building? What did you use under the suspended slab? Any advice for that particular prices?

Cheers,

Tim

Why don't you get the 50mm thick ones instead it will 1/2 the load. If you then need extra thermal mass lay them on a layer of 50mm pavers

Thanks Dave, I'll give that some thought.

Still need to do the slab for the Hearth. Looking at what I should use to support it. I like the idea of using the cement board that can be left in there. Any recommendations on what to use and where to get it from and how much it may cost me.

Cheers,

Tim

Cant see why not. They weigh 3.8kg = 228kg for the 60 that was an arch brick i weighed, if straights i'm guessing 4-4.2kg.

Check your owner manual you may be able to get more in.

G'day Lads,

I too have started to build here in Canberra - going for a 42'' tuscan pompeii.

Where have you guys sourced material from? Struggling to find refractory supplies locally.

Can't find fibre board, so I've bought a stack of vermiculite from South Pacific Hydroponics in Fyshwick ($45 /100L).

Found Ciment Fondu for dome motar at CE Industries in Geelong St, Fyshwick but at $45/bag, keen to explore other options.

Going to use Canberra Reds in the dome, but keen to have a cooking floor with better properties than they can provide. Any ideas? I've seen firebrick at Amber in Yalourn St, Fyshwick, but don't know what the quality is like.

A mate has brought some fireblankets back from Melbourne this weekend - so got that bit covered.

Any other tips gladly accepted.

Dan

Whoah....I paid $25 per 100l in Melbourne, it would have been cheaper to freight some in for yourself.

Insulating board traditionally laid under the cooking floor.

Where's that from Brickie? I'm seriously considering a road trip to get stuff. Freight costs to Canberra are just ridiculous!
