Yes I’m aware of this. Above the slab, part of the inside of oven I’ll be laying firebricks. Is that what you’re referring to?

Dude - Please - you are helping me. I'd rather do it right the first time (in my case, the second time).

OK - I have decided that i will saw off the profiled ends, after all, the gutter is going to hide it anyways.
I got 2 of 90x45 and 2 of…

Ok - Heres a thought - How about if i use a 90x45 for the top, sitting 90mm away from the wall and triple griped into the rafters, that way…

Ok - Heres the deal with the roof.
I spoke with the local roof guy and he suggested the following.
For trimdek profile im gonna put a 100mm batten against the wall,…

Hey Duke.
Still havent done anything yet regarding the posts. I've been away and the rain isnt helping either.
As soon as the weather clears i will be adding the…

The rafters are about 3m long and ~53cm apart.
I hope Greca works out because thats my favourite, but im happy to settle with trimdeck if i have to!

Ok Kewl,
Now with the battens, if i get 70x35 how far apart should they be??
You also mentioned something about different pitch for different types of roofing, can you advise which…

Excellent, thanks for that photo.
One more question. If you see in my photo of the footing that i currently have, the post sits sort of in the middle of…

Hi Duke,
Im definitely not putting a roof on until i fix the footings.
I will take your advise and use the same design post anchor but at 300mm length.

My rafters are approx 2' pitch. depending on the type of roofing i will probably double up the batten along the back wall to increase the pitch.

Ok,
The bracing i have already done but it wasnt in the picture.
I will add 2 more bolts.
Repouring of the footings will be my last resort. If i do go…
