  • Help with hearth and landing size

    I am buildiing a Pompei oven INSIDE my kitchen. The constraints of the layout have limited my stand to 41" wide to 36" deep. Can the depth be increased through the use of a cantileavered landing?

    I am backing into the dimensions...2.25" deep bricks ( I am in thermal mass school that wants a shorter heat up period), 3" insulation and .5" fireproof backer board. Based upon these numbers I am looking at an oven hearth of about 28". How do I design the opening height/ width- use the 67% of oven height rule? How does one design the landing area? exactyl over the slab? or use cantileaver to extend it a bit?

    Rebar- I have peices longer than necessary for the support matrix. Can I just bend the peices instead of cutting them and wire them together?

    Any photos of this stage of the project?

    THANKS

    How do I design the opening height/ width- use the 67% of oven height rule?...door height should be about 63% of interior dome height...as far as width I think most ovens are 16 to 18 inches...I guess about equal to the radius of your oven dome might be a good estimate...then round up

    Rebar- I have peices longer than necessary for the support matrix. Can I just bend the peices instead of cutting them and wire them together?...I wouldn't see any reason why you couldn't

    THANKS...no problem at all

      Yes, check out Ken's thread or mine.
