Two full bags of refractory mortar (I used Thermal Ceramics brand), and I did homebrew for the rest. Three bags would have covered my needs, I'm pretty sure.

I'm guessing that's 3x50lb. Perfect. Thanks.

Yes... Les and I were within 20 bricks and we both custom cut each brick. Custom cutting/tapering definitely requires more bricks.

200lbs of HeatStop. That's a little higher than typical (maybe) -- we are providing 165lbs with the Pompeii Oven Kit.

Any thoughts on that? Maybe 200 is closer to the average and we need to add one more 55lb bag to the 110cm/43" oven kit.

What does everyone think?

Congratulation on completing your oven. She looks great!

hi james and thanks..
I attribute some loss to inexperience, spillage and mixing more than i could use at one time, but i think my joints were pretty evenly spaced. next time im sure i could do it with three bags,,, Experience makes a big difference and i had none in masonry, Maybe you should offer another bag as an option ?

I used one 50 lb bag and part of one 10 lb bucket of heatstop to do an oven, a fireplace, and twenty feet of dual masonry flue liners, but of course, that involved crazy cutting.

So James, what was the consensus on the number of bricks for a 42" oven? Is that the number that was decided on for the version 2.0 plans? I am about to buy some bricks and I don't want too many but I also don't want to make multiple trips to get more. Let me know.

Nate
