Thanks Russell, appreciate your vote of confidence!! It motivates me!

At what point do you think I should start using smaller bricks, 1/3 size, can I make it to 5 or 6 course with half bricks?

Need to ask the WFO group on this one, I used a much wider brick, 5.25" vs std 4.5" and 3" thick vs 2.5" and I also tapered and bevel all my courses so my answer will be skewed for your build.

Thanks Russell, wish I could have got a hold of larger brick like that, it would have been the way to go.

Mortared the 3rd course in and dry stacked the 4th, looks like I am down to rhythm of cut/fit one day, and mortar/clean up the next, that may change due to the incline getting steeper.

Not sure on when I am supposed to start using 3rd bricks instead of 1/2 bricks, any suggestions?

Think I will start 5th course, leaving area around arch empty, then start on entry arch. I have been procrastinating on arch, looks like its going to be difficult.

Take care all!

I see a wet saw in the foreground, why not taper the full brick rather than cut into 1/2s or 1/3s at least for a few more courses? Somewhere along the way, unless you bevel you will start to see the inverted V and you will have to make some decisions. I would use full bricks as long as possible - IMHO. I was able to get to course 7 which is about course 8/9 using (standard 2.5" brick) using full bricks, although tapered and beveled. Good luck with what ever works for you.

Hi Russell, not sure what you mean by taper full brick? I have been cutting bricks in half, then beveling to prevent inverted V when facing oven. I have not angled them up to this point, I did try this when I first started and just took too long and made lots of mistakes. Since I seen some just use grinders, I thought I would split the difference and get a wet saw, using just for bevels and filling in mortar for back areas, is this not ok to do?

I am a little concerned that without tapering and keeping the bricks tight agaisnt each other, I will lose thermal mass (using mortar to fill in back/and back part of sides.

Sorry, I meant full width. Here is a picture from JCG31's thread on that I meant to say. PS mortar is your friend too....

completed 5th course and have 6th cut ready to mortar in. heat stop is pretty amazing, been making it like a thick peanut butter and it has been holding the brick in place without forms or tool, hope this last a couple more courses. noticed drying off the bricks a little after the water soak helps them stay in contact better too.

made the form for the arches, asking a friend for some help on monday to get the arches going, hopefully we will have these complete next week.

Pat,

Not sure if this tip is late but I ran across it and thought it might help with the arch transition for for you. It is from MrChipster.
