How much $$$ do you have in your oven
 
Ballpark figure, what did your ovens cost to make?
I have room for a 40" or so and like the round Pompeii style.
I have roughly figured the firebrick, mortar and base. But i know there are many other items i am not realizing.

Also can a tile saw cut firebrick? Or do i need a brick saw?

Thanks!

Tilesaw can cut firebrick just fine as long as you have a big enough throat. It can make a lot of nasty dust and noise. I used a hydraulic brick splitter I found on craigslist for $50...it worked just fine and no dust or noise! I am thinking that my entire build probably cost me about $2500-$3000. This included permit, tool rentals, foundation concrete, re-bar/wire mesh, metal framing studs, cement backer board (if you choose to build it the way I did), thermal insulation (blanket and board), metal framing studs, chimney liner and cap, and I dressed my entire oven in stone veneer...which was pricey, but worth it, roofing shingles.

I have a 42 inch, and use every inch of it....so much fun!

Thanks Jeep!
I was guessing $2500 or so. I just know from other projects that things come up you were not accounting for. Pretty soon a $1000 job is actually $1500 or more. Been there. Thanks for the reply!

Approximation at best...

400 firebricks at 1.18 each....$475

Rebar.................................$100

Block..................................$125

Portland, sand, lime, clay........$120

Insulation.............................$450

stucco materials....................$300

hired labor for
three days help with stucco.....$450

double walled chimney
assembly, cap, and base...........$200


Thermocouples embeded in oven $120

Approximate total...$2340

Call it $2500 to account for buying a few tools, and assorted crap.


That's for a barrel vault measuring 36 inches wide by 42 inches deep. Still need to do the countertop. I'll probablly use pavers since I already have them and mortar.

Probably a bit under $3000 by the time I scratched and scrounged a few things...the last one I built for someone else, probably $5000 - $5500 by the time everything was accounted for!
