Some pics of my progress. Another snow storm, unheard for Virginia this time of year, slowed me up. It has been cold and windy and I had brick dust in the ear canal......ouch

I hope to have the dome done this weekend, if the kids will let me work thru their Easter egg hunt.

Actually, I have seen snow late into April in Virginia. Hopefully this is the end of it. I'm done with winter and ready for spring.

Your oven is looking nice. Your at the point that a hand held mirror is handy for looking at your work inside the oven ...saves a lot of time walking around to get a good view point of your work.

I have to tell you guys, I have nine kids, so even though this pizza oven is going to be 42", that still is not enough room to hide eggs for all them there rug rats!

I am going to hit it hard tomorrow.

I hit it hard today, the knees are sore, the neck is cricked..........but I feel good that I was able to make some serious progress today. Finished some courses and the bricks over the opening.

Here is a pic of the entrance. If you look closely, one can make out the pencil drawing and the angle iron of where I plan to make my arch.

My question, how large of opening do I allow for the vent to draw, I have seen 6" x 10" but this seems too deep?

Some domes look to have a 3" or 4" depth. Any thoughts?

Thanks and Happy Easter everyone
