Corner Casa 110 installation

We have a 7 foot stucco wall around the back yard. One corner has a sitting area that has never been used -- a perfect spot for the WFO.

Here's a few photos of the foundation installation.

Absolutely looks like a great spot! Looking forward to watching your build.

Next step - the stand and slab.

Since CA is earthquake country I tied the block wall to the foundation slab with epoxied 1/2" rebar, and continued the rebar into the oven base slab.

I used 2" angle iron to support concrete board as the "floor" of the oven base slab form. The concrete board and angle iron were not removed, they are a permanent part of the structure.

Oven base slab is 3.5" of regular concrete and 4" of portland cement/vermiculite mix.

That's a lovely setting! What are you planning for the outside of the oven - matching the wall or the floor, or something else entirely?

The exterior will match the wall stucco. I want it to blend in, rather than stick out too much.

I have a Casa 100 which I installed "corner style" even though it is free standing and not in a corner. I think you have done a lovely job and it will look great finished the same as the wall. You may want to put a few of the lovely stones like you have at the base. That would add some texture to your structure without "sticking out" too much. Good luck and enjoy!

On to the next steps - setting the oven floor on a bed of Refmix, placing and mortaring the Casa 110 components, and finally mounting the chimney components.

In the final picture you'll see that I also began a bit of the enclosure work - framing in the wood storage arch with metal studs and concrete board.

Next steps - framing the outer structure, decorative landing and arch, 4" of insulation. Small curing fires also in progress.

Way to go Sakoman,

Looking good! I like the curved entry into the wood storage (framing that with hardibacker was smart), the oven entry arch is sweet, and I can see that you are fully framing in the steel chimney. Nice.

Yeah, though practical, I really hate the look of steel chimney.

I was a bit concerned about how it would draw with the cap enclosed like that. But the initial curing fires showed absolutely no issues -- draws amazingly well.

This kind of design does require lots of small and non-square concrete board cuts. The top of the chimney is lined both inside and out. And the "floor" of the inner enclosure slants back to a slot in the rear of the chimney so rainwater and debris can flow out onto the roof. You can see in the 3rd photo that I've already lined the interior of the chimney and if you look close you can see the sloped floor.

I'm starting to pay the price of a design with lots of angles :)
