Hi all. First time poster. I could not find an answer to the following question on the forum.
I am about to lay down the frame brick. I have been unable to find the recommended size 8x2 1/14x3 5/8. I have 7 1/2x2 1/2x3 1/2.
I understand I will need to adjust (decrease) the amount of mortar to adjust for the difference between 2 1/4 and 2 1/2, but I am wondering what affect the 8 vs 7 1/2 inches will have and what adjustment I will need to make?
Seems like the result of this size difference is the firebrick floor will be larger by 1/2 inch in each direction. Is this going to throw off how the firebrick lays out on the floor? Is the adjustment simply going to be in cutting the firebrick to fill in the gaps?
Any insight would be appreciated.
