Hey all,

Here's the next lot of pics. Was a bit worried whether the wood would hold the concrete weight having never done this before but it turned out fine! The iron is to support a row of decorative bricks along the front which will become clear next week.

It is like a mini-series. You know that the producers and cast know how it's going to turn out, but thet keep you hanging on the edge of your seat

What ever way you want to present if fine by me. Just keep the pics coming.

Here's the next few. Insulation was laid down on top of a bit of cement/fire clay mixture to make sure the floor was absolutely 100% flat. We wrapped the insulation boards in tin foil on the advice of a local guy and laid the floor directly on top of that. The rest of the photos are the oven floor and first few layers. We definitely found building the dome the most time consuming part of the whole build but as with all these things got more efficient as we went along.

Here's another weekly instalment! This shows the progression and completion of the dome with the entrance arch.

Until next week...

In picture 5 on post 11, I think it's a great that you've put a zip line right to the pizza oven!

@turkey - up in Clapham, you're more than welcome to come see it at some point if you're ever up that way

@PizzaIdiot - now that gives me a cunning idea...

Whoops didn't post last week - was my 30th birthday that weekend so was quite hungover!!

The first pic shows the casing going up around the finished dome, the second one is a top view with the dome wrapped in insulation, the third has the decorative arch finished (& you can can see the look we're aiming for) and the last is me working out the best positions for the chimney.

Next week the finished oven!

Hey guys,

After last weeks teaser, here's the last of the pics showing the finished oven. There's a few small bits to finish off this spring like paving stones, some herb pots on the roof and may even some floor lighting. But it's other otherwise finished and cooking great pizzas
