Looking good K79. I would say brick on. I'm planning a thermal break with quite a large gap stuffed with ceramic rope for my outer arch. I plan on setting the outer arch directly on concrete hearth, although a quite tall chimney on top of it. I believe this will totally make them independent???

Type S is a standard building mortar. The PSI rating (1800 ) is greater than Type N (750 ) because it has a higher OPC (ordinary portland cement ) content. It is no more heat resistant than any other mortar type or concrete which does not contain fire clay. Like any other type of cementitious cladding, it would need some kind of reinforcement for it to remain a structural elemnt.

They are independent of each other aren't they? The other option would be to get some 1/2 size firebricks or splits I think they're called and offset the joints if they need to be. They look offset in the photos by about 1/8" but that's obviously because I haven't put any mortar on them yet.
It doesn't matter if they line up or not, other than personal preference. Neither arch is bonded to the other so, structurally, it is a non-factor.

Incidentally, the need for using steel to buttress the vent opening goes away if the walls are set in Rowlock or Header courses. You have taken things this far...I'm not saying it was a mistake to use steel, just that it can easily be done with masonry.

Looks great to me! We have similar designs! Do you feel the need to buttress the arch walls?
