Made a big push to finish the oven. Brick work is done. Still need to connect chimney, build wall & tile and mount the door. I can finally see the end of the project.

Since there are rooms upstairs, I had limited options for chimney placement. Built a temporary wood jig to to ensure everything could connect before building flue. Was not too concerned about the appearance of brick on the outside since it will all be covered by wall/tile.

MaineL

glad you are back.

what kind of clearance will you have from that dome to wall? I assume you will fill all that space with insulation?

At the base, there is 7" of clearance to the wall (cement board). It'll be covered with 4" of ceramic blanket. Will probably add a powered vent, going to wait to see if the enclosure gets too warm. Certainly wouldn't mind venting heat back into the house when it's 10F outside.

Question Re: Indoor 32" Build

Gudday
I noted from the pics you have no lip , no revel on the entrance to the oven.
Have you included a damper on the flue to prevent heat loss up the chimney when the outer door is closed?
Neat build by the way I marvel at your results in such as tight space!
Regards dave

Hi Dave,

Yes, I have a damper in the chimney with a control that will come out through the wall. Space was tight, I spent a small fortune in Advil and beer completing this project.

Beer first for motivation, Advil the next morning for the sore muscles.

Secured the chimney plate this morning. I didn't secure with bolts using the four mounting holes, worried about drilling the fire brick and didn't like the idea of a rigid attachment with different rates of expansion between the steel plate and brick. Recessed bricks and sealed on both sides of the mounting plate with 3m Fire Block sealant.

Wow, MaineL, Great work!
You haven't mentioned the lighting at the base of the vent chamber. Was that your idea? ..'cause I'm going to copy it.
best regards,
