It is a skill you need when the world is using different systems. Some of us who started pre metric have an advantage and measuring tapes in both metric and imperial are very handy. With metric you cannot get four fifths of five eights of ....... anything!

Question Re: Thickness of vermiculite concrete

G'day
Question "visually to high" is that the finished oven top is too high?
Or you final hearth height to high?
What's the perfect hearth height?
A work bench is perfect about 2ins /50 mm below elbow height.
But this is looking down and working down on a task.
Oven height is different. You want too see the back off your oven.. Without bendding down.
And without having your elbows in line with your shoulders ooh! When handling you oven tools.
Perfect is what you find in-between.
Sorry can't be more perfect
Regards dave

You can always raise your floor in front of the hearth, many easy ways to do that. I actually was thinking of a two-tiiered outdoor kitchen design when I started the planning.

The first thing that stuck in my head when I started reading this forum was:

Insulate
Insulate
And then Insulate some more!

I am going with 4" ceramic board on the floor and 4-5 inches on the dome, probably will have enough to get to 7" on the dome.

G'day
I'm 5'6" my wife's 5" ( she says). I built the kitchen for the child bride (except the top cupboards) so I built a 8 in stool so she could reach.
That thing I constantly kick.
She leaves the top cupboard doors open which catch me at eyebrow Level.
I steal what I need and retreat into the yard to the WFO oven its, safer that way.
Regards Dave

2 inches of CF board is pretty much the minimum recommended. Most builders will go with 3 inches (75mm, if you prefer ) these days
