I keep stressing about how messy I've been with my bricks, but I'll be rendering it down the track, so my messiness doesn't matter. I just won't be building a brick house anytime soon  Grin

I have never enjoyed DIY bricking myself.  When I have done it in the past that first course of bricks is always the hardest.

So I've taken a bit of a break from this project for a few months as we had bills to catch up on and I was getting cranky, so wasn't doing the best job I could. Though noticed my progress pictures are well behind the eight ball, thought I'd better post where I'm at.
I've test fitted my BBQ to make sure it fits, and have started laying a bit of concrete under where I plan to start building the "airflow" section of the camp oven area. Now I've slowed down and had time to look at what I plan to do, hopefully finishing the brickwork won't take too long. Off to bunnings today or tomorrow to get the BBQ grates I'll be placing on the camp oven side and give me a measurement to work off

Under the BBQ, I placed a piece of aluminium sheet I had lying around and then did a layer of bricks on top of that. Seems to have formed up nice and solid, I was worried it would flex and crack all the mortar, but so far so good
