I did develop small cracks on the outside of the dome but after reading some other posts its nothing to worry about.

I finished framing up the oven and then it was time for the first pizzas. We made four (one at a time) and they came out quick and very good!

That does not look Like a small fire in the pictures. Is that after you finished the curing process? Looks good though keep it up. I am looking forward to seeing how you are going to finish the outside.

Mike D,

Yes this was certainly not the first fire. I had already spent a week on the curing process.

It looks really good. I don't see any smoke on your outer arch. I can't wait to see how you finish it.

I downloaded the plans for a 42" oven off the Forno Bravo web site

Where did you find the download? I can not find it on the home page.
Your oven is very nice. You set the bar very high.

Brian, I'm jealous at the cleanness still on the outside of your entry arch! We have had big winds here this week and I've had to block the entry with plywood to keep the smoke from coming down, yes down, the chimney and then out the front -another length of flu should fix that. After the fire and oven are hot, we're OK, but your clean arch looks great! :double cool:

brianventura,

I was admiring your clean and well-ordered metal stud framing job. I hope mine looks as good when I finish. I did have one comment though. You migh consider adding a collar tie or two, or run some studs from the top of the wall on the left side to the top of the wall on the right side where space permits. As your roof stands now, there is nothing to prevent the side walls from bending outward from weight on the roof. In other words, you haven't completed the triangle (the bottom chord) which allows the roof to bear a load.

Just a thought that might prevent a problem in the future

Fullback66,
Thanks for the comment. I have been away from communication for a while and I'm glad that you received some good information to get started.

Lburou,
Thank you very much for posting the information in a timely manner for fullback66.
I had strong winds during the curing process but luckily I'm am protected by a very large oak tree and hedge. I had a small amount of smoke exit the front but most of it went through the vent.

Gene,
Thanks, this is my first project using metal studs. The walls should be ok as I won't have much of a load on the roof. I also will have a countertop up against each side to add strength for the wall. I had plans on putting collar ties on the rafters but I had to keep the roof height to 6' which didn't allow for room.

I love this form, btw. I only used a straight length of wood to set the angle so far and I'm at that stage now where I need the support and I think this approach should work very well.
