  • Pompeii PDF Plans vs. Website plans

    Hello,

    I'm studying everything with a fine tooth comb before I begin work on a 42" Pompeii.

    I noticed the website and PDF materials lists show dimensions of:
    Foundation - 80" x 94"
    Block Stand - 72" x 84"

    Then on p.13 of the PDF and
    http://www.fornobravo.com/pompeii_oven/foundation.html

    The recommended dimensions are:
    Foundation - 77" x 86"
    Block Stand - 69" x 76"

    Why are they different? Is this an oversight, slightly different design or am I missing something?

    Cordially,
    Ken

    I think, It's not exact, but 72 and 84 are both divisible by eight. The actual measure of a concrete block is not 8 by 16, but 7.5 by 15.5 I think one may be a mortared dimension, and the other a dry-stack dimension. 4 and a half times 15 and a half is 69.75.

      Based on some recent discussion on some of the threads here your other option is to build it slightly big. You can always make a smaller floor and dome and have room left over for insulation. It is a bit trickier when you near the end and realize that you are tight space wise

        Thanks for the responses. I like the "build it slightly bigger" approach. Seems like I can design a block layout that will involve less cutting.

        I'll try not to make rocket science out of this and keep it simple!
