Default Brick types

I know the plans recommend fire bricks, rather than plain clay bricks - but just how much would I be sacrificing?

I am in the UK and the cost difference between a "standard" brick and a fire brick is considerable.

I can easily get standard bricks for approximatly 50p each (about $1USD) but fire bricks (225x113x50mm) are > 4 (about $8USD).

Any advice?

Building out of all fire bricks is prohibitivly expensive. Maybe just using them for the hearth would be OK.

FornoBravo - how much (in the UK) for just the 30" oven floor? So I can then do a Pompei oven round it?

wow !!! that's absurdly expensive. are you certain that they didn't quote you a price for the heavy duty bricks? i've heard that those are much more expensive than the medium duty bricks.
