If you can, slope your supporting slab down to the outsides slightly so water will not be encouraged to penetrate to the vermicrete slab.

Thanks Dave that's a good idea so I will slope my slab slightly to remove excess water.
I picked up my vermicrete yesterday .Gee it pay's to shop around one place wanted $52.00 for a 100l bag of grade 3 and finished up getting it from Elders for $19.00 per bag .
While in Brisbane I purchased my insulation blanket from Morgan Thermal Ceramics .they had a very small over in there warehouse that had seen better day's (as it lives on a pellet and gets moved by forklift when needed) but I was interested to see how they mounted the Thermometer

They had a small tube going through the side of the oven approx. 3 quarters of the way up the side of the oven just over the cooking position .They then can insert a thermometer in to monitor the temp .Is putting a tube about 8mm inside diameter right through the oven wall advisable .
