Well I still can't get the photo's to upload, maybe to big of a file and don't know how to shrink them.
Do you have "Photoshop" or a similar software package on your computer?
If so, load your pictures and under IMAGE, select IMAGE SIZE and reduce the dimension to suit your require viewing size. Too little and you have over done it so I reduce them to around 40cm wide. It will automatically reduce the image and you can then enlarge it to see it at your preferred choice. Under FILE, then select SAVE FOR WEB & DEVICES which will reduce the file size to be most economical. I usually rename the file with -web to easily identify it or inclusion in your posting.
Then go up directly above your 'Advanced reply' and click on the paperclip. Just follow the instructions and when you click "Submit Reply" your pictures will automatically go with your posting.

how much fireclay does one need for a 1200 oven?
A 25kg bag will be all you need. I used less than a bag for a 1000mm oven.

Cheers.

About 15 kg out of a 20 kg bag. Like yourself I did the wfo oven constructio by myself. So I did small mixes in 20 ltr bucket using a paint mixer on a power drill.
There's no waste this way and you could stop anytime you want and go onto cutting more brick without wording about you mortar going off. I found fine washed sand to work the best ( brought by the 10 kg as "suitable for kids play pits and gape filling pavers). The fireclay is "must" it gives you a very plastic workable mortar which allows a good result for the first time bricklayer. I had a couple of friends who have said the same.

Thanks guys for the quick replies! I'll play around with the photos. So i guess 50kg of fireclay is a bit of an overkill? Doesn't matter it cost me less than some places wanted to charge for just 20kg so im way out in front.

BackToMyRoots,

Love your intro mate, family is so important and I know the idea of spending time with my kids around the oven as they grow up is a definite motivator for me. Looking forward to seeing how the rest of your oven goes.
