Hello,

I am looking at maybe buying a modular wfo rather then building one from scratch. I have a question about these modular ovens or is it 2 questions LOL.

Okay from what I have seen of these prefab modular ovens they are relatively thin and from my understanding of thermal mass that is the reason these ovens have such quick heat up times. First question is. is this assumptions correct ?

If the answer is yes then read on to my next question otherwise ignore the ramblings of a senile man.

from what I understand of the vaulted ovens is that they retain heat for days due to the thickness of the walls which makes sence to me. So here is my question.

What is stopping me from buying a modular ovenkit and increasing the therman mass by adding refractory cement to the outside before the insulation layer to increase the thickness of the oven and also hopefully the thermal mass. Kind of like what they do on top of the scotts oven after the bricks are layed they add I thnink from memory 4 inches of cladding to increase its thermal mass. Is there a structural reason why this couldnt be done on the igloos?

Hope you guys understand what I am asking. LOL not to sure if I asked it right.

thanks
