Forum Page Loading Response

Forum Members:

We have received feedback regarding recent issues with page loading response time. We believe the slow response issue stems from the analytics we added with the new Forum. We are in the process of reconfiguring those elements and, after an approximate 24-hour time period for the reconfiguration to run, we anticipate a return to normal page load times. Thank you for your patience!

  • Greetings from Kingsport, TN

    Hello All.

    I am completing a major renovation to my house on Boone lake. The final project will be the brick oven. My stone mason will be assisting me, but has no experience building a brick oven. I am planning on a 42" tuscan domed oven, framed and finished with the same cultured stone we used on the house. We will use FB insulating board for hearth and FB blanket for dome. I am open to all suggestions. Looking forward to getting started.

    Welcome! We are here to help. Is your mason going to use brick or build the kit? If time is a factor - buy the FB kit.

      We are going to use fire brick.

        Watch your mason like a hawk and make sure you have 2" of board underneath your floor and 3-4" (or more) of blanket on top. If your mason is willing to read (and follow) the plans carefully you won't have any problems.

        Good luck and post lots of pictures for us!
