        Looking good! Curious how you are planning to finish/flash that chimney. I am building a similar design and am a bit perplexed about that one. Looks like you've got the roofing on with no flashing yet?

                Dave

                    There is not much you can do about it, really. Seal both the arch and the stucco with a penetrating sealer to make cleaning easier.

                      Dave,

                      As was mentioned, not much you can do about it. I suggest you finish the front with the brick you have used. It will still get exposed to soot but will not show as bad. I am contemplating raising my vent, not for draw, but on fire up the smoke gets pushed back down from my vent cover and lands on the stucco finish of the dome. You will not have that issue. Your overhang may get exposed but you can cover that with many things that can be easily washed.

                        You could also slice the same brick thin and face the oven with that, it will show less soot than stucco, but sealing in either case is your best bet.

                          Or just live with the soot. I don't find the soot buildup unattractive. I think it adds to the "old world" charm of the oven.

                            Are you using a blast/draft door? They help the oven heat up faster, and channel the smoke up the vent. I can't decide between SS and Neoceram... in the meantime, I'm using a piece of cal-sil wrapped in heavy aluminum foil (my temporary bake door) shimmed up and tilted back in the entry.

                              Yea im might just go with stone like i have on the bottom half and then stucco the sides and back, then seal the front of it like tscarborough said ...ok thanks for the replies - much appreciated..
