Default Re: 42" Brick Oven & Grill in Los Angeles.

Ok i just realized something. The Pompeii plans say the following.

Dome Insulation
Either, (1) 50 sq. ft box of FB Blanket and (3) 4 cu ft bags
Vermiculite/Perlite
Or, (6) 4 cu ft bags of Vermiculite/Perlite
Or, (3) 50 sq. ft boxes of FB Blanket



So this means i can use 6 of these McGills Warehouse Online Department Store,HF10 Ceramic Fiber Blanket 2-in. - 8lb/ft3 or 128kg/m3 [G1A-B,F2A,E9A] and not even use vermiculite around the exterior oven. This will probably save money and lots of time if i dont have to apply the Vcret, Right?

If you are attempting to build an igloo style oven, the vcrete/pcrete works well to true up and provide a substantial base for your final render.

If you are building an enclosure, dry packed insultion (vermiculite, perlite, or most mineral or fiber glass insulation) will work just fine outside of your 3" of ceramic fiber blanket.
The plans call for either/or. I like to side on the advice of both .

I did not coin this phraise, but it is insulate, insulate, insulate .

I see what you mean, I do plan on building an igloo style oven. I sorta just want to avoid the whole vcrete step. I was thinking to my self ill just pack it will insulation blanket then add some vcrete for the nice shape.

I just left Lowes, and purchased the materials.
I got 75 8x8x16 blocks for the corner stand, 120 6x8x16 for the rest of the bbq area and sink/counter area. 180 bags of 90# concrete mix. 6 sheets of 42x84 concrete slab mesh, 200 LF of Rebar, 3 bags of 94#brick mortar, 2 bags of 94# Portland cement, 1 bag of 50# hydrated lime and 8 bags of 50# all purpose sand. I got a $156 discount for working at a construction/restoration company, and instead of the regular $79 delivery fee i got it for $20. . Now all i need is time, time and more time to work on this oven.

It's not quite that simple. I formed some rebar to make a dome, covered it with chicken wire and it was still quite hard to get a good shape. Someone here built a form that spun around and they were able to get a near perfect dome shape. Just a suggestion...

Good luck - when you get to this point you are pretty much are on top of the hill.

I slopped in a portland/vermiculite mixture into the wire and on top of the blanket. Tried to smooth it out the best I could. I then hit it with regular mortar and again tried to shape it. The last attempt of getting it right was using the final coats of Dryvit.

I finally made some real progress. Started the foundation and layed the first coarse (almost) of the blocks. I had to remove 3 fruit trees and plant them somewhere else, we formed the foundation, added some gravel that was thrown in my backyard from the previous owners (free is nice) then added some mesh & rebar. We poured & leveled the foundation/slab then wet layed the blocks, then inserted the rebars into the blocks.





My father working on the slab.

Vwiz,

Making good headway, great that you can work in the winter on your project. It is 5 degrees here and a foot of snow on my lawn. Jealous that you can get out side and work. What are you going to veneer the CMUs with? Notice blocks right up to the edge of you pad. BTW, Gulf is the one who made a rotating template for his v-crete install. Look at his build to see how uniform and symetrical his vcrete install was.

Thanks Russell, ya we are blessed here in LA, its about 67 during the day, so its good for working. I will be using the red bricks you see at the first page of my build, i plan on cutting them in half to double the SF, if they don't crack. I was also thinking of installing river rocks at the corner and around the doors, but well see. Thanks for the info about the rotating form, i will look into it. Ill have to brain storm with my father on the whole blanket or vcrete thing, i think i have an idea, but its way to early for that.
