Yes the addition of sand and more cement also makes the mix easier to work and it behaves more like normal concrete to level.

Just a thought

For your application I'd be using 3:1:1 vermicrete, sand , cement.It will give you a lightweight concrete that's fairly strong, not a bad insulator and easy to work.

Started oven and entry arches, I was thinking of including a thermal break but an update of Ben,s kit now keys third row brick into oven arch to increase stability of entry. If you look at the last photo you can see I have not mortared the vertical joint of the other rows thought this might provide some thermal resistance, will caulk with high temp sealant.

After burning the midnight oil, I managed to finish the dome.
Still require some castable refactory mortar to finish off but working away all week so brickwork should be cured nicely by the time I get back.

I had to modify with grinder the IT tool to fit last few rows of bricks, but used the stick method to support bricks until fitted keystone.
