            Looks great! I admire the fact that you actually split the bricks for the rings. I'm sure its been done before, but I've never actually seen it reported here (but, there many gaps in my education).

            FWIW, you may be a bit lite on the two inches of insulating concrete. Insulation under the oven floor was added to the plans a few years ago to design enough insulation to keep the heat from wicking down into the hearth. Two inches is good, four inches twice as good.

            Enjoying your pictures too.

            If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
            Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
            An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

            I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

              I would add the extra insulation under the hearth bricks if it's not too late.
              Great job so far!

                Thanks for the replies and input. It is to late to go back and add more insulation, oh well ......i think ill b ok I am not doing any more than just a backyard oven and I'm sure I'll reach my temps for pizza and bread and hold on to a bunch of heat. More than I'll ever need anyway.

                On a positive note we had great weather today and completed 2 more courses of brick there is rain tomorrow and SuperBowl! So no work tomorrow. I'll work on posting some new photos tomorrow.
