HI Guys
I too am from Brisbane, well Green bank, and am looking at building my oven. Have you guys got your up and running and did you get all the materials locally?
Thanks
ROB

Hello Rob
I'm in Burpengary and currently building. I got the firebricks from Claypave Darra and the insulation, flue and door from Total Refractory Management at Slacks Creek. Hope this helps

Hi All
Has anyone built a 42 inch WFO from the plans and has an idea of how much money they spent on the project? I am still trying to decide on a fire brick oven or a precast concrete kit.
Any thoughts?
Rob

Hey Rob
It's cost me heaps - a lot more than the pre-cast jobbies. I haven't kept exact figures, but it's more than $2000 and less than $4000. $600 of that was spent on a brick saw, so I will get some back when I sell it after the project. Some guesses:
footing/slab $200
stand $250
hearth $300
angle iron 80$
insulation $800
bricks $500 ?unsure?
fireclay $60
flue $85
door $80
still to do the render/finish yet

ouch?
Glen

Startingn to lean back towards a precast kit.
Thanks

Remember, If you get a modular oven, It's just the inner shell. You still need a foundation, a stand, a support slab, insulation top and bottom, vent and chimney, enclosure, whatever finish you choose...

It's not remotely plug-and-play.

TRM in Slacks Ck are pretty expensive in my opinion. I am in the throes of setting up a new venture in Melbourne and will be specialising in the wood fired oven materials. Should be up and running in the next couple of weeks.Hope to be able to supply Aussie wide with good freight rates. Any enquiries 0451 470 371. Johnny
