  • My New Build - Almost Done

    I've been working on putting my Casa2G100 in for quite some time now...seems like forever ago when I laid the first CMU! Wanted to put an update out there since we're about 95% of the way done. Here's the details...pics following.

    ---Engine Casa2G100
    ---Add-on of 3 additional inches of dome insulation (Ceramic blanket)
    ---Add-on of 2 additional inches of hearth insulation (Ceramic Fiber board)
    ---Covered patio - vented through roof with double wall stainless chimney

    I did everything except the brick work on the outside...wanted to make it look pretty at least. I'm picking out the granite for the hearth extension and counter / prep area next to it, and will post the final pictures once all the stone and brick are up, and ceiling is stained.

            A little bit of both! It's a covered patio attached off the kitchen. But the North and East walls are open to the outside.

            I am complete, my oven is 4 days cured - I got it a bit hot on day two, but no visible cracks, and it was up to 950 last night and no visible cracking. Held at 640 when I woke up this morning. Looks like all the extra fiber insulation bottom and top is working well! I'm having my wife's uncle weld us an insulated door now...should be a beast at retaining heat.

              That looks great. Your "oven-patio" is going to be the place to hang out during winter with the heat that the open oven will put out. Sounds like you insulated it well too.

                Jealous! It's lovely. I'm already considering how I could work an oven into the house.
