Materials and tools for the construction of the fireplace-mangal
Before you start the independent construction of the fireplace-brazier, you need to make sure that you have bought all the necessary tools. First of all it is: a container where the solution, a shovel, a rubber hammer, a trowel, a meter, a level, a plumb and a square will be mixed.
Since the fireplace will stand on the street, you need to consider that it will be influenced by environmental factors, for example, wind, rain, sun. That is why it is better to abandon cheap, and therefore not very high-quality building materials. For the construction of the fireplace-brazier needed:
- brick red and silicate for firebox;
- cement, sand, crushed stone, pebbles, expanded clay;
- reinforcement for the foundation;
- facing material;
- boards for formwork;
- metal corner;

The main work on the construction of the fireplace-mangal
Brazier-fireplace can not be put on the eye. It is laid out according to a previously prepared plan and scheme.
At the initial stage of the construction of any brick buildings is preparing the foundation - the foundation. For him, digging a pit, on the bottom of which is laid a pillow of gravel and rubble, everything is tightly tamped.
The next stage is the installation of formwork. The reinforcing structure can be welded or simply drawn from stainless steel wire. For the upper part of the foundation, a solution is made of sand and cement. If a deeper trench is needed, then it should be poured with two layers of different solutions: the bottom one will consist of pebbles and cement, and the top one of sand and cement.
Reinforcement mesh need to pass through all layers. Align the upper part of the foundation with horizontal beacons, and leave to dry completely. On the upper part of the base, a sheet of waterproofing is placed, on which the first row of bricks further rests.
