Looking good. Tell us about those narrow tinted concrete blocks. They look great.

Scaffolding? This is really interesting. Can we see a pic from the ground? How tall is the block stand? I'm guessing this oven will be used while standing on a deck?

yes. this is at deck height. my neighbors think i am building an elevator shaft to get up on the deck. LOL!

the block we used were some left overs from another jo i did. the are 4x12x16, basically a 12" block cut in half.

The design i put together has the deck bearing patially on the masonry below the pizza oven. below is a larger opening for additional wood storage or maybe a precsat statue or something.

i am going ot get som eof the more current pics from my camera.

be right back.

Re: getting started!
maybe i shouldn't have entitled this thread as getting started. we have been at it for several weeks and things are finally coming together.

here's a few more random pics. i put the insulated coating on the vault today.

I can't wait to see the deck with it. This is a really cool project.

We often have people post questions about putting pizza ovens on decks. The answer is always "no", they are too heavy - we recommend a tall block stand next to the deck. As far as I know, you are the first to actually do this.

Keep up the great work and keep the pics coming!!

here's a few more pics. i am hoping to finish the brick veneer this weekend and get the perlite in and capped off.

quick question. should i get a few low burns in or burn it in completely before i seal everything up? i was thinking this would be best but figured i would ask for some opinions.

once this pizza oven is done i have to manuever the scaffold for the next surprise!

once this is all done the deck steps will wrap around, and attach to the extended stand, i hoped that it would give the effect that the pizza oven was in the deck instead of hanging off the edge.

Re: getting started!
I'm REALLY liking this.....I have been looking at mountain homes/cabins for a couple of yrs and many have fireplaces on the deck (worthless to me, I want an oven).
You are doing exactly what I want in my "mountain home"......and, as Ken mentions, the RIGHT WAY.
Keep the pics coming, I want to see this one to the very end.
