Fireplace firebox

QLD, Australia   

I’m wondering if you can help me,

I live in Australia.

The fireplace that i want to build is to have a traditional brick fire box , but then above the smoke shelf I want to transition to a metal flue which would offset about 600 mm from vertical and discharge into the atmosphere about 5 metres above the fireplace floor.

I proposes constructing the transition from mild steel and paint it with heatproof paint .

Have you seen this method before?

Your help would be much appreciated.
