Vent arch construction
 
The brick arch that will cover my vent landing is 13.5 inches deep (long).

Are there any concerns with construction requiring a span of more than one brick length? Should the joints be staggered the length of the arch as well as between the brick pieces?

Do I build the interior arch first, let set and then complete the exterior section?

I'm also incorporating an 8" round metal vent in the top of arch.

Thanks:

No problem, just stagger the joints. It will be easier to build the inner then the outer, as a rule.
