Looks good, I like the $12 price. I was hoping to pour my slab today, but the rain hasn't stopped. Maybe tomorrow if it's not a lake.

It finally stopped raining, so I got a little more done today, some of the brick wrap and the start of the wood storage hole. Just remember, if you can't lay brick plumb and level, make sure you lay them waaaayy out.

Wild!

For a second, I thought I was looking at something disastrous; then I realized it was intentional. That's going to be quite an artistic statement, and a real conversation piece.

This looks like it's going to be a very cool looking oven.

I love your home, yard & interesting brick work. The oven will certainly compliment it.

Oh to live in a warm climate!!!! (We are at -30 degrees C here today)

I look forward to seeing more pictures and following along with your build if only to see recent pictures of a nice warm yard

It isn't THAT warm today, low 40's and windy and cloudy, plus 100% humidity and serious juniper pollen. I did the layout for all four arches today. The wood storage and outside oven arch will be (ID) 16-3/4"W X 11"H. The inner oven arch will be 14"W X 15"H (63% of the 22" oven height). It looks like the chimney will be 8"x 12" (flue ID) X about 5' tall over the level of the oven floor.

I hope to lay most of the brick for the counter and the wood storage arch this weekend, weather and kid activities permitting.

Juniper pollen... Gosh, does it make a mess?
Our pines make a huge mess in the late Spring here. Sticky yellow dust all over everything.
I would love to feel low 40 temps right now, maybe it's time to book a vacation to somewhere, anywhere warmer than here.
I hope that you post some pictures soon so we can see the progress! It sounds great!
Have fun & play safe.

I was able to get some more done today. Tomorrow I hope to get the wood storage arch and the top courses of black brick done.

Brick work is very creative and impressive. Looking forward to seeing the arch.
