Thanks about the site it is great.
Some questions about your oven
1) Can you tell me the total amount of fire bricks used in your oven.
2) I am in Australia as well, what's the cheapest way to source firebricks (brands?), can you tell me what can be a decent price to pay.
3) Can I use instead normal solid bricks, brands names like BORAL, NUBRICK or any other good brand used to build a house. When I mention solid briks are the ones without holes.
4) The material for the external walls, (both sides and back at least) I am planning to use bluestone, the same type used to build the surface of old roads in several parts of world.
I will try to make an envelope and to include the money for the CD.
