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.

  • House bricks top oven

    Hi all as I am sure you all, I have got my hearth slab made now. At last so now the fun can begin. I am sure a lot of you will cringe when i say what i am going to sugest but any way here I go. I have a heap of house bricks in my shed and I am wondering if they will be ok for the dome part, of the oven to save a few $$$. We do not plan on living here for more than a couple of years and the oven will only be used on the odd weekend.

    any ideas thanks guys.


    cheers

    Australians have had success with something they call "pressed reds" which i think are like our pavers, in other words, no holes

    Save your hollow house bricks for your enclosure.

          You could always use a more temporary mortar, and then knock down the oven and take the bricks with you when you move.
