Base Preparation: Base can be constructed of either
poured slab or compacted gravel. See requirements
below.
Zoning and Permits: Before you plan your project,
learn about the necessary zoning requirements and
rules for excavating and building in your area. No
matter how small your project, be sure you obtain
the necessary permits before you start construction.
Know W hat ’s Below: Whether you are planning to
do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging
means calling 811 before each job. Homeowners
often make risky assumptions about whether or not
they should get their utility lines marked, but every
digging job requires a call – even small projects like
planting trees and shrubs.

Installing Firebrick
Install fire brick now.
Step #1
Rutland fireplace mortar (furnished) is a silicate product that when fire
cured, sets rock hard - as strong as firebrick itself and withstands
2,000°F. Passes ASTM E136 and E72.
Sa
Step #1: Start by applying a bead of firebrick mortar to the bottom of
a brick. Begin at the bottom of the fireplace. Place a full brick in the
front left corner and end with a half brick on the right side. Continue to
install by placing mortared bricks edge to edge (no joint) as shown.
When you finish the bottom of the firebox, there will be a small gap
between the fire brick and the back wall.
Step #2
Step #2: Next, install the fire
brick in the same manner to
the back wall as shown. Set
first course on top of fire brick
on floor.
e
Finish: You will need enough
mortar to install the trim piece
for the front of the firebox. DO
NOT use firebrick mortar to
grout any gaps.
Step #3
pl
m
Steps #3 and 4: Install the fire
brick on the two remaining
sides as shown. Note, there are
two cut firebricks to
accommodate the angle iron
support.
CURING FIREBRICK MORTAR: Protect new mortar from direct water
contact until fired. Air dry for 24 hours, but no longer than 30 days.
Start a low fire, keeping the temperature below 220°F until mortar has
dried thoroughly. Then increase heat for the final cure. Heat for 1-2
hours at 500°F.
Step #4
DO NOT USE SUPER-STIK ADHESIVE
TO INSTALL FIREBRICK.
