  • Oven entrance / external arch / isolation

    Hello everyone,
    I am looking for a little guidance on the next steps for my oven.

    Please see the gallery.
    - I have acquired a ready made oven arch ( Manufactured from high temperature resistant concrete, link here: )
    - I have enough for a 10cm layer of ceramic fiber.
    - I have CalSil board at the bottom of the oven and the brick are just touching it, not mortared.

    My doubt:

    1) Where is best to place the second arc?
    Solution a) Immediately after the first arch, like in the photos ( This implies that dome and the external arch have no mortar at all between them ?)
    Solution b) Slightly on top of the first arch ? ( This will create a better union between dome and second arcg)

    2) What shall I cover using ceramic fiber? Just the dome or the external arch as well ?

    3) What kind of treatment i can add to the front of the oven ? I was planning to cut the floor bricks like in figure "f.jpg" but no idea what to put in the front to close everything and hide the CalSil Board.

    I am a little lost, I recently broke my elbow and now I depend on friends to help me finish the oven.
    I used to just work with a general idea and figure things out while I was doing them, but this time I need to be very organised and know in advance what to do in each step, to respect my friend's time since they are helping me
