The area would be the thickness of one block they measure 8"x8" and the ledge was exactly what I was thinking, I'm going to do an angle iron frame on the interion edge of the fire brick to protect the edge from the angle iron cooking grate and to provide more support to the fire brick...
I will check out the link for some hints...
