Well, I like the simplicity of it, either way.

Thanks

It is much simpler to build the vault. I built the entire vault in less than 4 hours. There are certain features of the AS oven you want to avoid though.

Not true. It's different, not easier. Any oven is a lot of work to build. If you want one to heat up for a few pizzas in a reasonable amount of time, I'd stay away from high-mass designs.

Agreed!
IMHO...Insulation and thermal mass are about 10 times more important to the usability of your oven than the actual vault shape.

Have you seen anyone build a complete Pompeii dome in 4 hours? I was talking about the arch, not the oven.

Well, it took a year or so, but I finally poured the countertops (they will dry to the same color as the wall). I will grind them down a bit, and move on to the pergola. I still need to caulk and paint the damned oven for that matter. Note to self: Next time do not make the oven usable until everything else is finished.

Those countertops look great. I am guessing you poured them in place. With what will you grind them? I am considering a concrete top for my build, though I need to research the process a bit first.

Tom, I disagree Why go to all the trouble of a 4-hr dome build and not be able to use it right away? You could have easily thrown a couple of pork shoulders in your finished oven at 228F and in the ten hours it takes to create pulled pork have the counters and tops built, poured, polished and sealed.

Derk, that is where the sink goes. I cut 95% of the cement board in the cutout, so I just have to make a few cuts and it is open to the bottom.
