Looking great! I can sympathize with respect to lifting concrete. My all time low weight for the last five years was the monday morning after pouring my hearth. I swear I lost 10 pounds that weekend.

Default Getting Started

Getting started stacking brick this morning. I was kind of excited at first.. then I found out how tedious this type of work is. Hats Off to the Masons!
The inner wall of brick will eventually get arched to a 45" radius to mimic the opening on the Premio oven opening.

Default The Masons are Here!

Thanks Bob! The Brazilian Mason Team has arived! These guys are tearing up the yard like there's no tomorow. I'll have to step back while they perform their magic on the 1100 square foot "Oven Option" we will someday refer to as the Patio. And to think... It's all about the Pizza!

Here's some shots of the area the masons were doing. Now that they're gone I can get back to building the insulated hearth.

Thumbs up

Hi Howie,
The patio looks great! Are the bricks in the base the same as the floor of the patio? (or is the patio floor made of pavers as opposed to brick?)
You may have convinced me to build a round base oven. It looks super!!

Thanks Rick,
The Brick is all S&H City Hall Pavers. The perimeter brick was set on edge over a 6"X12" concerete base and mortared into place. The the center patio is set over Site Pack and Stone Dust. The front of the oven is built from the same pavers. Some thought is going into the next two coarses. The base as you see it now is where the slip plane begins. So the next two coarses of brick will be indapendant of the base as it's seen now. I'm convinced it can be had. Yea.. go round! By the time I'm finished with the prototype I'll be able to warn you of all the gremlins one might run into along the way. My next big step is finding vericulite in the area. Any ideas?

Howie this looks awesome. Is this your design or did you have it professionaly done?


I really like the round base design, Do you mind if I use your concept in future design/builds?

K.O.
