This afternoon, I added vermicrete around the vent area. I'll brick over this area.

Look's Great Kurt,
I'm not sure that the two small sections of form (above your arch) need to be removed, since they don't actually touch the arch. But, I think that the void could be filled by "tuck pointing" (with more vcrete) if they needed to be .
I'm looking forward to your finished oven .

Yeah, I left them as the vcrete was sticking to them. I'll fill with either more vcrete or blanket once I add the chimney.

I'm thinking I need to add the pour in place countertop next. I want the bricks to go over the counters so rain can run away from the bricks.

Looks good but I am curious. Why are you insulating the arch? You have a vent right there that is getting rid of the heat

Because I felt it would be easier to brick the roof with the support and it will add buttressing once I brick around it. I hope that makes sense.

Did you drop some steel into the hearth? I wouldn't expect a whole lot of shear strength from the vermiculite. May not be an issue, I have no clue of the load.

Steel up from the hearth into the vcrete? No. Rebar in the hearth, yes. I made the assumption that the vcrete has enough compressive strength to withstand any outward pushing of the arches when the exterior brick is laid next to the vcrete. The force will have to displace the exterior brick too. I'll have the weight of a 2' clay flue (about 45 lbs.) and enough exterior brick to cover the flue supported by the arches.

That sounds a lot like my approach. I dropped some steel through the cores of the exterior brick. The concern isn't compressive, it's the side load. If you think it may be an issue you can address it when you get to that point - looking good!
