If it was just cutting brick in half and slapping g them in place sure no problem.

Yes you can build without brick saws my own oven has survived three yrs of use without any problems . You'll find that the good ok'd USA the firebricks are way cheaper than here so its certainly a money wise option.
If you really want some inspiration check out Bruce's folly in the getting started section he built his out if a wheelchair

Ok,
I tried to get the plans from the store and didn't receive them, I'll try again and see what I can find locally for bricks.

just 2 cents...

If you have the time and a good location and a little cash-go with the brick oven. It is not that difficult-just hard work and a patience mainly. The beauty of the finished product is concealed usually under mounds of insulation. You will have a quality oven and a lot of flexibility to cook whatever food you can imagine.

You can build it using half bricks cut roughly with a bolster, then place the rough cut to the outside. You will have some large gaps to fill so some temporary wooden wedges on the outside will help. The home brew is cheap and effective for this method.

Lots of patience. But then it depends on how fussy one is
