I decided to take Brickie's suggestion and make a "Welsh Arch" to support the opening. It dry fitted well and so I cemented it all last week and all looks good. Thanks for all of the input!

If anyone is still monitoring this page, I am now at the stage of enclosing and insulating the enclosure with either perlite or vermiculite. Since I'm in a very cold climate (Vermont) I'm concerned about water retention around the oven in winter--even with a roof and "box"-- and have read that Perlite retains less water than Vermiculite. Anyone have any experience with Perlite as an insulator and/or any issues with using it, as opposed to Vermiculite?

It is an excellent insulator and most of it available to the public is siliconized which helps with the water issue.
