Default South Africa Gauteng: first attempt

Been following the guidelines and instructions on forno bravo for a while now and the biggest issue was sourcing the materials in Gauteng as I did not want to compromise on quality. Fire brick are available from R28/brick, however you can buy from Verref Rietfontein in Springs 011 818 6000 at R17 a brick (min order is 1) and they have the widest range of fire brick shapes too. Verref Elgin also on Springs sell the cement you need at R208/bag.

The people at Verref are bery fiendly and very helpfull. The Chemical Engineer even gave me a 5min intro on the cement with do's and don'ts and I only bought 1bag. BTW their cement rely on the bricks being DRY.
