$$ Cost for 36" in USD (NY)? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • $$ Cost for 36" in USD (NY)?

    Does anyone have a rought estimate of the material cost for a 36" oven. I'm in NY and I'm thinking this is the summer to start my build. My last project was a patio which ended up doubling the budget. So you can just imagine my wife's reaction when I mentioned these plans, I did mentioned that the great folks at FornoBravo.com provided these plans for FREE.

    Build costs vary greatly. We have had members build ovens for as little as a couple hundred dollars - dilligent shopping, using recycled (free) materials. One early member actually built his entire oven for zero $$$ (excluding the pennies he had saved to use as the finish on his igloo-YES, pennies as in Abe Lincoln one cent coins); he actually bartered other items and services for all of his materials.

    If you're paying full retail for all new materials and proper refractory components expect to have at least $1000 in a basic 36" build. Remember, finish materials and whether you opt for a stucco igloo or an enclosed oven will greatly determine how much you spend.

      I'm planning on going with just the stucco igloo. I guess I should start shopping around , as I thought this was doable for under $600.

        I have the same question here in the Northeast.
        Can anyone just break down rough cost just for the pompeii dome and insulating material?

        Fire Bricks
        ceramic blanket
        underlayment insulation
        dome insulation
        flue (terra cotta vs steel)

        The base and enclosure I can figure separately since it will depend more on the style.

        Also, I assume I need a good wetsaw and blade. What should this run?

            This is very helpful Jed. Thanks for the 411. I hope to be a producer of information and not just a consumer soon.
            Thanks again.
