ATK406,
Thanks, the arch was the only thing I could come up with where I could end the faux stone. Hopefully it is of some help to you.

Fabby,
Thank you for your comment. This project has taken me around 3 years to the point I am at now, 1 year just planning by reading and viewing all the posts I could on this site.

I now have the front completed, except for grouting. I'll start on the sides tomorrow.

Brian,

Looks fantastic! You have done a marvelous job! Is the oven door in the picture insulated? If not, are you still getting decent heat retention?

Thanks you guys. Looks like I will not be done for the Fourth of July this year. I was hoping to be finished with this project last 4th of July.

Okn,
The door is not insulated. It is just a flat piece of steel. I needed to get something on there because the 2nd wood door was charred. I have not check on the heat retention with the metal door. It has a really good seal but I think it would be better insulated some how.

Did the floor tiles for the kit come cut like that or did you cut them? The kit on the website says the 42" comes with Six 18" x 18" floor tiles and the 36" comes with 4. I assumed they were square.

Hi Texas

The floor tiles did come 18"x18" and I had to cut them. It wasn't too difficult on the saw it just took some time.

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner, I have been out of town.

Brian
