You know, there is a saying in woodworking that you should measure twice and cut once. In the case of this masonry project, I think that the axiom has to be to keep asking questions and reading until you know what you are doing.

Your comments were super-helpful. I have looked many times at the pictures on your CD and never realized that the rafters were lifting the roof well off of the walls so that there was plenty of ventilation. I thought that it was just for decoration! Likewise, I do not think that I ever appreciated the reason for not using firebricks with higher alumina content.

Now it all makes sense for the same reason. Many thanks for your invaluable comments photos will start to appear as I make progress on the oven.
