Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • My Insblock 19 got wet

    The storm was coming and we hadn't had rain in quite some time, so I wasn't prepared. I have a 4 inch concrete pad with 2 inches of insblock19 on top of it and then my floor and walls in progress. The storm was mighty and big. I quickly put a piece of plywood on top of course 7 and then a tarp, I followed with another tarp, only to find the next day that something had failed and my 2 inch insblock19 had been saturated, at least at the edges by water. The build is 3/4 over. Should I pull the plug? My gut says screw it. Go with it and any water trapped will work its way out during firings. What say you?

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Tom,

    I left some block out all winter with weight on top of it as a test. When it dried it was in good shape - keep going.

      Yes, insblock19 is good stuff. My oven was semi-exposed all winter with no degradation of the insulation layer at all.

        Yay. Good to hear. I want to start my build while my concrete is still curing and I am whetting it down.

          Ive soaked CalSil board in a bucket of water for several days, dried it out, and it was as good as new. Tough stuff.

            There is nothing much wrong with it so you can easily go with it.
            All the best..
