Default Barrel Style oven layout question

I am working on the layout of the oven.. On the walls do you usually lay the firebrick tight together or space then and lay with refractory mortar? I have attached a picture of the dry layout that i have came up with, just curious on the spacing of the walls.

Any input would be appreciative..thanks

Well i think that i am going to put a small joint of mortar in between and on the bottom, think that it will keep the sides and top more even

Is it a full barrel vault or a flattened one?

well it will have a rounded arch...kinda like the one in Alan Scott's Book. Pretty much the same layout as he uses for the oven 36 deep by 32 wide and a 16" door

Um, why is the door on the end? I've never seen a barrel oven (brick) done that way.

The ovens I've seen had the door along the long side.

Forgive my lack of Sketch Up skills, but the picture probably explains it better.
