Once the dome was completed I did a 1/2 coat of heatstop and then put on a 2 -4 inch coat of 20:1 vermiculite/concrete. and filled the void of the housing with just vermiculite.
The Chimney is a double wall insulated Duravent from FB.





This is basically where I am at, at the moment.


I will try and find the missing pics.. We have never done any concrete, Brick laying before.. but with the wealth of information in this forum and a little desire we managed to make it happen! I will continue to post pictures till we finish the whole project... the cheap labor has set a deadline, for they want to have a 21st B'd party in July... hopefully we'll be done.

Nice build. I'm curious about the term "LARUVIUS" I googled it but it takes me to your posts. Whatever / whoever it is, very clever use for the keystone!

Very nice build. I like the corner oven construction and it looks like you even stuccoed your wood storage! Very nice. (but you did have "Inspector" watching ).

I thinks it's so great that people with little experience can now go thru the FB forum and find all the info they need to get their oven done like you did. Congratulations. I like your keystone too.

Yup...super, super job. I could not see anything wrong or questionable. For the first time with a trowel it looks great!

The Term Laruvius: it is a word play on Mount Vesuvius (The Italian Volcano) and our last name. There is a brick oven Pizzaria in NYC (Naples 45) and they have 3 brick ovens. They have each oven named after Volcanos in Italy. (Visuvius, Etna, and Stromboli ). Which I found pretty interesting

As far as the keystone, I bought a concrete mold on ebay and poured it.
Did a search for "Concrete Mold Greek Roman" and he came up...
Also Bought and poured a Female mold which is placed in the Roast pit.
