Thanks Craig,

I've decided to go with a 40 inch oven which will give me will give me a foot for the entrance if you know what i mean,sorry I don't know the correct terminology.
So in saying that I priced the fire bricks today.$6.90 for a 231x115x75 brick.Can someone tell me roughly how many bricks I need?

thats expensive i have seen fire bricks for somewhere around $3.50 for arch bricks. Google Melbourne Fire brick you might be able to get him to ship to Grafton at a reasonable price but $6+ seems awfully expensive.

Ben is excellent value hopefully shipping to grafton is also reasonably priced.

Cheers Colin

I poured the insulate slab today, unfortunately I ran out of vermiculite and had to send the wife out to get more and to make things worse there was no more vermiculite so I ended up with corse grade perlite.I hope this wont effect the end result.

In between cleaning bricks today I had ago at positioning them, to get an idea how things will look.
All my bricks are arch bricks (except the oven floor).So to get the right circumference for my oven Ive had to reverse every 2nd brick.
Will this be ok to build the whole dome this way?
