Brian,

That looks MARVELOUS! What an awesome choice! Have you decide how you're going to do the walls?

ggoose,

Thanks, it took me some time to decide on the roof.


Kevin,

Thanks, I have not yet made a choice for the walls. I most likely will finish with a stone look.

Brian,

How are you? The oven is looking amazing so far. I can't wait to see it when you completely finished it.

Please tell your wife I said hello.

Heidi

Hi Heidi,

Thank you, the whole project is slowly progressing. Even though I have yet to finish (at some point in time) the oven is working great. My niece wanted to have a pizza party for her birthday which is the day after Christmas. So everyone came over and we had a build your own pizza birthday party. We all had a great time and the pizza was a hit.

Hope all is well with you,
Brian

From what I can see in the photos the project is coming along nicely.

The pizza looks very good.

All is well thank you for asking.

Thanks,
Heidi

Brian, First off!!! Wow. You do amazing work. Very detail oriented and clean. I have been contemplating trying to follow your footsteps. I would hope you could offer some help in answering a few questions. What was the approximate cost for just the hearth and dome materials? Am I better off in saving a lot of labor in return of buying a modular kit dome(Casa2G)? I am trying to weigh kit versus from scratch. The Pompei kit(Scratch Build) from Forno Bravo shipping costs to Connecticut far out weigh that of the Casa2G Series kit and shipping.

Thanks for your help!

Brian, I too LOVE your roof! WOW WOW WOW ! That is definitely impressive!

flyfisherx, where in CT. do you live? I am in Southbury and I am just waiting for the warmer temps to finish the outside of the oven. I built a Pompei from scratch (no kit) and it works fantastic! Better than I could have ever hoped for, especially considering I never mixed mortar before in my life!

Good Luck to you both!
John
