I haven't done one like this yet, but to me it's not unlike other types of stonework I have experience with so I'm not concerned....it drills nicely too. I'm pretty psyched to do this...and I returned all my cedar shakes so I wouldn't back out again.
That looks like Switzerland. Those small barns are scattered all over the place there. I agree its a great look!

It is Switzerland Garner, good eye.. But that type of roofing is done all over Europe and Asia too.

Nothing on the roof yet, but I should get something going in a week or so. Speaking of going, it looks like we will be leaving this oven behind in a few months.


Now I get to build yet another one for myself ( going to do a 42" Neo w/ a squirrel tail), in addition to another for a friend, possibly a third for a client...seems like it will be a good year to build ovens!

Gudday
Another move? And leaving another oven behind... Wow
But more ovens to build!
But why a squirrel tale ? I always thought that they were more suited to a commercial use. Flashed 12/7 . But in a domestic use would be prone to heat loss.
Please correct me on that
Regards dave

Why the squirrel tail? Because I haven't built one on a front venting, freestanding oven yet....a couple historic beehives I have though. As far as heat loss, I am building the flue different than the ones you mention, the main thing will be that there will be insulation over the whole dome... So there is not the same concern as the commercial ovens, which are uninsulated in that section, and used inside only, and constantly fired.

As far as building goes, I have the privilege to work with masonry full time, and to be honest, as soon as something is done ( or almost done as is the case with this oven) I'm looking toward the next project...to try new things, and implement new designs.

One thing I really want to do with my next home oven is a ribbed cross vaulted base...something I nixed on this one. The planned diameter is 42", so I'll have a larger base than here, and that is better for cross vaulting. A major difference is that we are moving back into stone country, so now I have access to a much bigger variety of stone to work with. Can't wait .

HOLY CRAP!!!

I've just read the entire build thread, your workmanship and attention to detail is spectacular. I'm blown away.

And now as you're almost finished you're leaving it

I can't wait to see what you do next.

Jordan.

Picked up the cedar shakes again, I should get a chance to pick away at it, and have it done by the middle of next week.
