How to build a fireplace-grill
If you decide to opt for the installation of a stationary outdoor fireplace, then you should start by drawing a detailed drawing and a laying scheme of the future stove. When you decided on the place of installation of the fireplace, then it is time to pour the foundation on the place of the future fireplace. It can be of various shapes, including a round version of the furnace. The design of the fireplace depends on what functionality it will have. The obligatory parts of the outdoor fireplace, however it may be, are the furnace, the chimney and the chimney.
The hearth is an arc-shaped hole that is used to make pizza and many other dishes. To some extent, the furnace performs the function of an electric oven, but the taste of ready-made dishes can not be compared with those obtained in an ordinary oven.
Blowing need for good traction from the furnace itself into the chimney. In addition, the blower provides easy access to the cleaning of the furnace. It is in it that all the remnants of the burned wood gather.
The chimney is the most important part of the outdoor fireplace. The quality of its construction depends on how hot the fireplace will be. The diameter of the chimney should not be too small so that it can be easily cleaned on its own.To control the temperature and intensity of the flame in the wall of the chimney, you need to install a special valve that will regulate these processes. If the valve is completely closed, the smoke will not be able to easily pass through the chimney.
As already mentioned, the construction of an outdoor fireplace, like any stationary structure, must begin with the construction of the foundation. In order to fully strengthen, the foundation must stand for several days or weeks, it all depends on the quality of the cement and the thickness of the foundation.
After the foundation of the foundation is completely frozen, you can proceed to the construction of the design of the fireplace. The order of the fireplace is to install bricks on each other in a checkerboard pattern. This method is the most reliable and simple. Laying the main part of the outdoor fireplace is the most laborious and lengthy process. In principle, it does not differ from the laying of any other furnace.
The first and second rows will be even and repeat the shape of the cement platform. At the following stages, the facing of the blower begins. This process can be repeated several rows, depending on the height of the fireplace and the depth of the blower hole.
To designate the characteristic arc of the hearth, you will need some kind of flexible, but heat-resistant metal that can be bent to obtain the desired angle of the arc.
The construction of the chimney is the last stage of the order. This is the narrowest part of an outdoor stove, but the process of its manufacture can take a lot of time.
The first thing you need to buy for the construction of a fireplace design - high-quality cement. While the cement base will harden and acquire its strength, you will have enough time to take care of the acquisition of all other materials for the construction of the hearth at the cottage.
If your future fireplace is made of metal, then you will need heat-resistant material. Modern aluminum may well become the main material for the manufacture of the fireplace.
Brick fireplace assumes the presence of heat-resistant high-quality brick and a good construction mix, which will not crack and crumble in the process of exposure to high temperature.
