Casa2G90 - Getting Ready, Stucco Questions - 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!

  • Casa2G90 - Getting Ready, Stucco Questions

    The freight company will be dropping the oven kit off on Monday and I am gearing up to do assembly. My base (pictured) was finished last week.

    I understand that water is an enemy until the final coat of stucco goes on, so should I'm planning on tarping if rain interrupts the build. I've read through the instructions several times and I think I've got the assembly down. I'm planning to finish it as a gray igloo.

    I'm new to stucco, so is there a primer online worth reading? Products worth recommending? I hear there is a partial vinyl stucco that I should use as the final coat. How long should I wait between coats, how many coats, etc? Any and all stucco advice is appreciated!

    What we did was after the Ceramic Insulation we wrapped our igloo in chicken wire and tie wired it all together to keep the nice shape. Then we coated it with poormans mortar...... let it dry one day. then next day I use "STO" Stucco then after it dried I put another coat on it. you can look at my build if you want to
