Hey Fabby

Your oven is looking good! You could qualify for being a 'selective retainer' for keeping that scroll for the purpose it was fated for. 25 years shows a quiet determination and certainty of purpose. It adds a certain je ne sais quoi and the whole job would have been the poorer without it.

It looks like you are good to go, smoke from the stack. It is a good feeling eh?

Cheers ..... Steve

Gudday
I do like the scroll , I find that you always find a use or home for something .....sometime. I have a "thingy" on my chimney as well .... Neighbor says the correct turn is " folly". I think the child bride put her up to it but canny disprove it yet.

No apologies nescessary for the 25 years of stashing the scroll. Touches like that that add another level of character and individaulity. Nice.

That looks great Fabby. It's good to see somebody else using natural stone.

Thanks for all the comments guys.

Now that I am able to acutually cook some things, I feel like I just graduated high school and got laid at the prom...............(maybe I shouldn't make such a grandiose comparison...............I mean, the pizza oven is WAY BETTER!!!!!!!!!)

Need some advise.

I have been firing now for two weeks and have had some really hot weather for several weeks. The dome has been bone dry for at least three weeks before getting wet. This past week though, we had rain like five days straight.

Yesterday was the first semi dry day and I was planning on firing the oven today but last night I took these pictures of the dome.

I have three layers of stucco over chicken wire and insulating blankets. It looks like I am getting a lot of water soaking into the dome.

Is this normal? Can I fire today or do I run the risk of cracking the dome?

Might be prudent to proceed slowly with the next fire to see how it goes re steam emanating from various parts of the oven. There shouldn't be too much water soaking through the stucco.

Sounds like a tarp over the whole thing when it rains would be good until you get it waterproof.
