Hi VicBrickie!

I join you in your newness. I have been reading these forums for some time, and I too am halfway through my build (36" Pompei). I look forward to following your progress! Thanks for helping me pluck up the courage to make my very first post. Now, enough about me, lets see some photos of what you're building!

vermiculite / cement screed only about 65mm would have liked to have had a bit more but got a bit difficult trying to keep the bench flush with oven floor height without the step in it being too extreme

65mm may be a bit thin, time will tell, are you going to put a chimney on it?
