  • fire brick vs cob vs compressed earth block

    Starting the planning process, and I'm trying to sort out the direction to go. We are buying a hand-press compressed earth block machine for building our house, and I'm thinking that could be useful in making an oven too. Certainly for the base/foundation, but I'm wondering about the dome. I'm pretty sure I can cut the blocks before they cure, so it might be possible to do a dry stack dome. My guess is that the CEB is probably more like cob than brick in its heat retention. I'd use fire brick for the oven floor in any case. Any thoughts?
