Thanks for all the advice.

I went to one of the events they were at on Mercer Island Wa .
The floor is refractory bricks .
I think the walls and dome are the same , to achive a 4 in thick surface .
Then insulation blanket , wire mesh and more concrete to get the smooth surface.
What interested me was how well the dome was insulated , they stacked about 10 pizza boxes on top of the oven.
