Russell,

I appreciate your willingness to revisit the past -- concerning your build... I know your thread spurred on quite a discussion about the stability of the outer arches and if that section (entry/smoke chamber) should be built on CalSil board or Insulated Fire Brick or directly on the concrete. I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but it appears you ended up building directly up from the concrete hearth. Is that correct? Would you be willing to elaborate on why you did what you did? Would you do it another way now that you have been through it? Thanks for your thoughts. Carl

so for a corner 42" build can I use the same pad size as per the manual? we are landscaping and I want to get the pad poured with some other concrete work we are doing. You still recommend a 5 1/2 inch pad yes?

I thought you had been pretty quiet! When you get back if you would have a moment to direct me to a photo that would show this, it would be great.

Happy travels!

Thanks for illustrating exactly what I was wondering about. There was a lengthy discussion early during your build about building the vent area on the insulating layer or not.

I assume you have been satisfied with the course of action taken?

Again, this was much appreciated!

The IFB is a great option for floor insulation vs CaSi or V or Pcrete. If it works for you act quickly though. This is over half off what you could get insulating bricks for. Note: IFB are not suitable for the dome, only under the floor fire brick.
If I wasn't going out of town tomorrow I'd go pick it up tomorrow but oh well.

I havent heard that anyone has but you can go and check it out. It is right off 1300 south and the freeway. It just depends on how large you want your ovento be. I had about 8 boxes and used all of them. I would suggest getting more than you think you need just in case you need extra.
