No more construction progress, but we did have a pizza making session.

Pictured below is a "local" pizza - flour milled in town, basil and oregano from the garden, home cured olives from our trees, local olive oil.

We tried dough made from Caputo flour in the same session. While the local flour was quite acceptable, the Caputo flour beat it hands down in ease of dough handling and flavor. Much easier to get a nice thin crust with the Caputo flour, the local bread flour was much less stretchable and silky. It kept on wanting to shrink back into the original dough ball

Hi, I love this design. Could you tell me how you affixed the angle iron across the opening and as a support for the slab?
Thanks!
Mike

The angle iron is just resting on the concrete block. I positioned them so that one side of the iron rests on the top of the blocks and the other fits in the gap between the blocks. Then I just placed the hardibacker on top of the angle iron with plenty of overlap onto the blocks too.

The angle iron on the front entry is just resting on top of the blocks too. Once you pour the slab nothing is going to move!

nice design, any shots of the roof from the top?, I am interested in how its sloped. The corner installation makes the roof lines tricker

Here's a shot from above and behind. You are right, the roof lines are indeed tricky with a corner installation.

I've also included a shot of the medallion we settled on for the chimney, as well as shot of the overall oven now that it is painted to match the wall.

Wood storage door and tool hanger are still on the "to do" list

thanks, that is helpful, I assume you pitched that top part ever so slightly, did you use the ice shield waterproof stuff under your roof

Yes, the top is very slightly sloped and no water pools there.

We did not use anything like Grace Ice Shield -- I think that is intended for plywood roof decks.

I just used concrete board, two coats of stucco, and elastomeric paint.

Hint to the unwary - if you use the Grace roof detail membrane, don't use it in full sun or hot weather. Sticks to it's self unretrievably. Otherwise great stuff - I used it instead of the underlayer flashing where my chimney came through the roof.
