Brick Oven in Conservatory: Part Six

Keep it level
Getting from a complete face arch to setting the damper involves bringing the brickwork toward the flue.

long  bricks frame the opening at the top of the flue and provide a base on which the damper assembly is set.  The cavities on either side of the flue are filled with insulating concrete.
Signing the dome
A layer of insulating concrete covers the dome, filling any voids and strengthening the buttresses.

Damper temporarily set on the flue awaiting connection to the chimney.

Climbing inside to inspect and clean any mortar from brick surfaces
