Thank you for your advice Gulf , I have delayed the insulation part for now and went ahead and bought a few 9 inch firebrick 125 to start with and will be playing with the distance , as of the time of this posting i am considering only using the vent area as my landing and placing it at the end of the hearth and making a concrete top on one side of the corner build . First time to use google sketchup so ignore the crude mock up .

At this stage you should also consider the entryway shape.

Parallel: easier to construct.

Flared: better for visibility and access.

Looks like the rain will delay my vermiculite/perlite pour tomorrow . hope i got enough, bought 8 cuft of each and 4 bags of 92lbs portland the area is roughly 5'x5'x5" will spend my time during the rain to make sure i have the formula correct . plan is to do a 5,5,2 vermiculite premium blend , perlite course blend , portland . is this the correct formula?

I certainly hope someone else chimes in on this. I have only used vemiculite. I think that vermiculite and perlite are interchangable as quantities go. Premium Blend vermiculite threw me off for a minute . I went out and looked at my bags. It says course "Premium Blend" from Sungro. I think we are talking about the same product. Mine came in 4 cubic feet bags.

As far as the formula "5-5-2". If I understand correctly, you are proposing a 5 parts vermiculite, five parts perlite and 2 parts portland. I think that would be equal to a 5 to 1 mix (of either) which is what most endorse for hearth insulation.

I figure that your "5'X5'X5" is equal to 18000 cubic inches. Or 10.41 cubic feet. You have 16 cubic feet of aggregate and 4 cubic feet of portland.
That ought to do it. I mixed my 5 to 1 by volume, using the same bucket to measure both vermiculite and the portland.

Yes the vermiculite is Premium [MEDIUM] blend by sungro they didnt carry the course blend for that is why i want to mix both together, figure it will actually do better that way the vermiculite should make a tighter bond around the perlite ... Gulf how is the weather near you ? hasn't started the downpour here yet but they say we will get a drenching rain next couple days ,figures just when i get time to work on my oven mother nature decides she wants me to wait that much longer for my first pizza

Sunday morning rain was gone so poured the vermiculite/perlite . I let it stay formed up till today and formed up a ledge overhang on front side it extends 3.5 inches and on the side it extends 9 inches . it will be used as support for my concrete countertop, placed 3 bolts so that it can be bolted down from the inside . on the front edge of the ledge support i placed house insulation it should make the ledge a chiseled look . Fingers crossed it comes out right

-Interesting ledge. Kind of a lefty approach I guess.

-I would keep the vermiculite mix supported as long as possible. It takes a wile to set up and it can be a little crumbly.
-I am partial to a round arch and entry, but thats just me.
-Keep up the good work.

Yes on the second day the ver/per mix was crumbly but on the third day it is almost as hard as my 2 week old hearth ,I am pleased with how well it turned out I had several factors for placing the ledge on the left side , putting on the right side would have taken up space for the eating area on my patio ,also as i'm right handed it is more comfortable for me to hold the pizza peel while my wife loads it with pizza and placing in the oven (I did a mock setup to make sure which way was more comfortable and efficient). Now comes the hard part waiting for it to dry out before I start laying the oven floor . I have put off going to go get my fireclay and heatstop 50 for that very purpose, 50 mile drive to the nearest supplier, so have too plan a trip as work allows
