question about fireplace build

The mason has started my fireplace, but I am concerned.
The outside of the fireplace is larger than the opening in my floor. The mason said it is not a problem because he is going to fill the openings with concrete and the step the blocks over. Doesn't seem right to me.

Don't understand what you are describing. Can you give a more detailed description?

It seems to me as long as the opening in the floor is larger than the actual fire pit area you should be ok. If the mason has enough room to build a cement buffer between the floor and the "hot spot" he's doing it right.

Your link says the image does not exist so I could not grasp your issue.
