Default Croc 105cm build in Drouin Vic

hi everyone, love the site and forums.

started work on my oven (105cm internal)
have my stand up with use of left over bricks from my new house
and considering the wet and cold weather I was wondering how long should I wait to put slab on top?

stand was build 5 days ago but mortar is still visibly darkish other then top few levels thanks to shocking weather.

CrocAu think I did mine 2weeks later.

Are you putting in a steel lintel across the front?

thanks for your reply
2 weeks doesn't sound too bad, what weather was that in?
I will start working on my frame before I get concrete truck here and considering I never done it before I guess it could take me few days.

and yes there is steel lintel in place over the opening, got that extra timber support while all is still fresh to avoid any flex

if anyone got some extra tips for winter melbourne build I would love to hear it

Winter in Adelaide and Melbourne is not quite like winter in Utah.

Prediction for June in Melbourne

thanks UtahBeehiver, speaking of nice I just had a look at your photo progress and wow, very nice job. I wanted corner design originally as well but after adding up dimensions I figured there is no way I could do it in spot I have for my oven but I'm quite happy now how it worked out, oven door will be out of the way now.

G'day Croc. Good bit of brickwork.

Just going to pay attention to your build. I'm going to build also in brick, got 4 pallets of bricks left over from our house build so what better use than an outdoor BBQ & WFO.

Saw you attachment in the first post, going to copy that if you don't mind, and add about a metre and a half for the BBQ and servery thingy.

Yeah, I'm too in Melbourne so the weather may be bit of an issue due to working in the mines in WA and getting home to build.

i'm bit worry about frost bite, especially since last section was done with quite wet mortar, is there anyway to tell if mortar was affected?

also is it normal my bottom levels still show a lot of dark colour in mortar? so far it seem top two levels starting to brighten up while rest is showing dark as if there is still fair bit of water left inside, I hope colour evens out because it looks messy with different shades of grey right now
