So this Pizza cooking and consuming has cut into my build time - but I like it.
In prep for building my surround I read that 4 inch wide cinder blocks were a PITA to work with.... But I just finished building a sphere out of rectangles so I figured how hard can it be?42" FB Pompeii Oven with 19" dome, and adjacent fireplace, in the O.C.-20120818_161007.jpg

Now I know, ... Cinder blocks 4 inches deep are a PITA to work with. They are not the least bit forgiving when it comes to the placement of vertical re-bar; when the blocks are staggered near the corners - the cells do not always / easily line up. I placed horizontal re-bar at every two block interval. This leaves very little space for cement to pass.... So I filled the height of two cells - Then placed the horizontal re-bar, then repeated to achieve the height needed. You get the idea.
I have durock to cover the front to the edge of the outer arch and to bridge the gap in the front of the chimney.
I plan to put a band of 8x2x16 inch blocks on top of the enclosure with the back edge supported on angle iron, across the front of the oven and along the top of the surround wall with a 3 inch overhang; to be stucco'd. I will have a tin roof slanting back with an over hang off the back (this will form a "porch" for the tortoise enclosure in the back 2/3 of the oven base). Given the elevation of my yard and the height of the enclosure - the Tortise will be the only one to see the tin roof.

Nicely done. Good photos to show the insulation.

I like it. I used metal stud for my enclosure, which for the record is also a PITA.

Very nice. Congrats on your progress and thanks for the insulation and enclosure photos. The temp readings are helpful too. I am insulating and enclosing next.

Had a productive WFO day. I made great progress on my enclosure. I went with a 4 inch cinder block "house". I have a band of 8x2x16 blocks at the front (supported by 1.5 inch angle iron) and then a tin roof on treated lumber sloping back within the cinder block. I partitioned off the back corners and it still took 14 cubic feet of vermiculite to fill in the house. The photos below are from early in the day - I was too worn out to photo the tin - but it is there!

DVM,

You have made quite a bit of progress. Keep up the great work, by far way ahead of me.

Prepped and poured the arch over adjacent "fireplace". I use the term loosely - it will contain fire and provide ambiance. I have no expectation for efficiency. But it will look neat!

That is going to be one great intertaining area . What are your ideas for the fireplace? I see that you have some protectors over your wall ties. You can bend them down or up out of the way until needed. Down is usually the safest way but, you have to remember to lift them just before you set the brick in place .
