When you say buttress, do you mean adding wall thickness or buttresses?

Also what kind of depth coverage with my ceramic fibre blanket do people think I need to do without the vermiculite concrete?
If I have enough fire blanket I intend to chicken wire it then put a base coat of render on before my finished coat.

I'm confused. Are you covering the dome with a brick vault in addition to stucco?

I mean adding further brickwork either side of my vault arch, probably 1 brick either side then building this up vertically keeping it plumb and cutting it into the arch until I end up with a flat platform to fix a chimney anchor plate on top of the vault arch.
I know it's not essential to do it this way, I could just create a vault and platform for the anchor plate directly on top of the arch, but I wouldn't mind adding a bit of support.

Rather than building a thick two wythe wall, you can eliminate a lot of mass by incorporating this kind of buttress...



Adds strength to the wall too...nothing is stronger than a corner.

No, stucco to the dome and brick vault and entrance arch with twin walled flue. If all go's well!

Yeah true, that's an option. I think 2/3's height up the arch is the rule o thumb if I remember correctly!

Thanks for the Info!

Or, build a pointed ( gothic) arch, it wouldn't require buttressing at all.

Most welcome...

Kinda sorta...the span between the buttresses is more important. But for WFO surrounds, you can get away with waaaaaay more than you can with large masonry buildings and walls.

I really doubt that you really need to buttress your arch Allan, unless your going to build a full brick chimney.

You can render directly over the wired blanket, but i may be slightly harder and require an extra layer first, as its not as stable a background as Vermicrete.
