Good video demonstrating stabilising effects of material like this.

A floor screed is usually a cementitious material made from a 1:3 or 1:4.5 ratio of cement to sharp sand. It may be applied onto either a solid in-situ concrete ground floor slab or onto a precast concrete floor unit.
I just read that apparently you don’t use rebar in screed… don’t know why or if this is correct.
Stove pipe is used for venting wood-burning stoves and is used inside the room where the stove is installed.
As soon as that pipe goes through a ceiling (upstairs floor) it must be converted to a Class A chimney pipe.
If stove pipe is used outside, it will not be able to maintain sufficient temperature to prevent creosote build up so the risk of a chimney fire is increased.
Class A chimney pipe requires 2 inches of clearance to combustibles.
Fire -> stove pipe -> ceiling support box/ round ceiling support piece -> Class A

Soffitis derived from a French word that means “formed as a ceiling” and the Latin term “to fix underneath.” The soffit is the visible part beneath the roof eave’s overhanging section. Its basic function is to help with attic ventilation as it has small holes that allow air through for circulation.
