Default New build in Mulwala

Gday all, going to start building soon. So I need some info on bessre blocks. Can I use the smaller block for my base. By smaller I mean 90mm instead of 190mm. The oven id is going to be 1200mm so oven width will be approx 2000mm. Cheers john

The 90 mm (4") wide blocks are not considered structural (interior walls only). If you want to go thinner use 140 mm (6") blocks that take around half the concrete to fill that the 8" blocks do, but are still structural.

Well here are the photos of the slab. The whole slab is 150mm thick as we are thinking of putting a spa in the back left hand corner. I also put natural gas out to where the bbq is going. No more running out of bloody gas half way through.

Cheers John

Gday all,looks like things are going to finally happen.Contacted Bunnings to see if they have the blocks,and the reply was yes.We will have them in next week. Happy Days. Have time off work to get the base done,and you gotta love that.

But I do have a question.With a 1200mm ID oven how big does the chimney need to be,and the door.
I was thinking with the door that a 580mm door would be ok,but laid it out and you could put 1/2 a cow in it .Lmao. Is it too big as the hieght would be almost the same.
Any and all help would be grand.
Cheers John

It might be too late but I found Bunnings to be not so competitive for blocks. Depends on whether you have any other local alternatives though. I found one of the block/retaining wall manufacturers offered much better pricing out of their yard.

Gday Browny,you are right in what you say. I did contact another masonry in Wodonga/Albury and they were no cheaper,which was a bit of a surprise ,I even checked our local home hardware and they were dearer again.
The problem is distance. We are in the middle of BF nowhere and transport is a killer.Any how enough of the bitching.
THX Browny.
Ps any idea on this #$%^&* door. I did a trial run and it looks ok. BIG but ok. LOl

Cheers John
