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



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • $$ 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.
