Default my summer project begins.


Well I an now of and running (hopefully) with the completion of my base. The sure had a fall of about 180mm. Hence why it is at such a jaunty angle. Used some cinder blocks, bricks and other aggregate to in fill somewhat and then poured the base using self reinforcing premixed bag cement.
Thank goodness for cement mixers, 20+ bags would not have been fun.

I am aiming to complete the task, after being challenged by my good lady, for $500 nzd or less. Thus far $185 spent on concrete, bought my bricks and refractory bricks for $1.50 on trade me, so on track to make budget. Oh just found a load of reinforcing grid and timber for nicks from a neighbour clearing out his garden for spring
Will keep watching your posts and I'll update add I move along the project.

Any pointers or ideas or things I ought to consider are gratefully received

Cheers Andy

Good luck with the build. I'm also in the Waikato (Hamilton actually) and finished my oven earlier this year. Check out the photo in the gallery under drew audio.

$500 is going to be a challenge! Let me know how you get on!

Kind regards
Andrew

yes all good on that, the levels were set with a level with a slight fall of about 5mm to allow any rain to drain off,

Nice to hear from over the ditch

Cheers Andy

Sorry Al

I have just re read what you said - I mean that I made the slab level with a slight fall across it, the jaunty angle bit was with reference to the obvious height to the right edge in comparison to the left. The slab is nice and level and ready for the build, I'm actually quite happy with it given the ammount of brikkie-ing I've done!

Cheers - Andy
