Hey guys

not for myself, wish I had a house I could build a braai in, but for a colleague.

He wants to do a stepped brick kind of build, which would (via steps) "angle" up to the chimney part, which would then rise straight up. He was just wondering, as was I, how would you achieve this without having the whole thing sagging in the middle and possibly collapsing, since some of the stepping would be "suspended" above the braai - effectively the hollow where the smoke collects before it moves upwards and out.

I do not really have any building experience, so I might be using the wrong terms.


Essentially it would look something like this: (found on the internet looking for stepped brick chimney)

Not sure but I believe they stack dry bricks then cover over them with bricks and mortar for the final shape then just remove the old ones, seen something like this going on once.
