I'm not sure I understand what you mean by reinforce concrete layer. Insulation should be between the brick floor and the hearth. I don't know that there is any debate about that. Some builders put a layer of vermicrete down, and then the board - but no one puts the insulation under the hearth.

Thank you. At this point I think the only thing I might have considered doing differently would be a larger stand.

I've been happy with Marvel though they did misquote by $.20 a brick. I debated doing the vermicrete layer but after mixing and pouring over 30 80lb bags of quikrete I think the fiber board is way to go. You would not believe how easy it is to work with.

This has to be a misunderstanding...there is no debate about this. The insulation HAS to be under the floor brick, and not the structural slab.

Stonecutter,

Great call on covering it with plastic. I still have my sheeting that I used when I poured the slab and hearth so that should work a bit better than the towels I had anyway.

Dennis,

With that considered do you think the 7 degrees would work?

When you made the transition into your arch did you use a base template similar to the ones below it and just cut a 7 degree wedge off of it?

to be honiest, I think I used the 5 degree chips I had cut off the first two courses of bricks. gven the two layers of mortar, it's easy to get to the 12 degrees.

I made a template up for the inner entry arch and it seems to be a bit flat. I plan on tapering the bricks like Gino has done but even so it seems a flat.

Should increase the arch on the left and right to help strengthen this up?

There will be more bricks of course I just set them up there so the arch could be seen more clearly.

My $0.02: make the door a half circle! It's much easier to build and easier to join to your dome.

That's what I was thinking and have been second guessing the entry since I started.

You ended up going completely half circle correct? When I looked at your initial photos it looked like you had the two soldiers at the left and right?

Also what did you end up with height wise? Since I am trying to copy you I may as well get that right too
