  • New 42" Pompeii in Denmark

    Hello you good people
    I have finally come down to start building my WFO. That is untill now I have started extending the terrace to fit the oven.
    Decided to go for a 42" high vault after a lot of reading at this site. You see my brick-prototype in the background, and the mould for the foundation slab.
    Looking forward to share my progress with you

            Welcome

            Looks like you have a smaller oven in the background there? Is it functional?

              Nice looking site, but it's along way from the house!

                Hello again. Sorry for not having posted for a while, but winter, work, woman and worries about frost depth have kept me from having anything to share. Now I have built a foundation 800 millimeters (32 ") under terrain, and hope the topping stays on the pizzas for years to come. In the comming week I plan to pour the slap.
                Texman: the oven in the background burns wood allright, but does not retain the heat.
                The new oven is on a terrace adjacent (can't spell that word!) to the house. It's the roof of the neighbours garage in the background

                  Slap is poured with rebar and 50 mm (2") insulation under.

                      Block stand coming up. After work before dinner job and in the middle of the sea-trout season. It is hard to find time for it all. BTW all materials so far are scavenged. If anybody should wonder why I use blocks of different sizes. Will have to buy the last 15 blocks though

                        Ready to fill the blocks. Hope I'll have the time to do it soon.

                          Nothing wrong with being a scavenger........good start.

                            Let me second Russell on the great start and the scavaging. My stand is 100% used block. I get a kick out of scavaging (scrounging) for building material.

                            On filling those blocks, I have a little tip that helps on small projects. I made a couple of scoops from 1 gallon jugs during the course of my build. The first one I used to fill the cells in my stand. It is flexable enough to get the the last drop out the corners of a wheelbarow, and it forms perfectly to fit the cmu cells for filling without spilling .

                              Nothing like a bit of 'creative upcycling'. After watching some of the builds here some folk would appreciate being able to get their hands on good 'rescued' materials.

                              A lot of beauty of some material is in the passing of time etched on its surface.
                              Cheers ......... Steve
