Just how I envisioned it. I like the cast door. I will follow your progress and then copy it.

Did you have any trouble removing your oven arch form? I noticed it rested on bricks did that help?

It is key that it be chocked or you won't be able to remove it without breaking the arch.

Here we go, the monolith rises, I hope that I never have to get rid of this thing. It is not going anywhere.

Due to the fact that I scrounged my block, with the scalloped type side, they had no corner brick with the same design.

Is regular thinset ok for setting a 8X8 tile on the half block blank sides?

Or do I need a special thinset for outdoor applications?

Thanks
Derk

I think regular thinset will work fine. I tried a bag of the fortified stuff, and I found it hard to work with. It's just extra sticky mortar mix: it should be weather resistant.

Default It continues.......

The top slab is poured, the tulips are blooming and the snow is on the ground.

No perlcrete today.

Here is the perlcrete floor insulation. It is funny stuff, just like everybody says. I found that folding the dry together and then folding gently the water worked well. Here's hoping to a good cure.

The hearth is finally set, a new roof and a bathroom tile job interupted the progress. If the good weather continues the plan will remain on schedule. I hope the bees do well this year so there will be lots of honey for the honey butter and future wheat bread.

Beautiful 4X4 orange and blue tiles to cover the block ends turned out matching pretty well,
