It doesn't look rough to me at all. I think it's great. Do you have any pictures of your transition and vent area?

Thumbs up Re: New Build in AZ

Your oven looks good!

Do you have any data for us on things like how long it takes to fire to a clear dome or how long it holds heat after firing?

I see you used two inches of insulation under the oven floor...Does the bottom of the hearth get very warm after firing the oven?

Thanks

Lee, it takes a good 40 min to get it good and hot. I usually fire the oven and then take some of the dough out of the fridge and then set everything else up for party. I havent made a door yet but it holds its heat well. And under the hearth doesn't get hot a bit. Safe enough for the kidlets to touch without worry. One mistake I did learn is...I made those stucco popouts from styrofoam and the one nearest the oven opening has melted. So I had to repair that. Note to self, styrofoam and high heat oven doesnt mix well.

Sean,

The oven looks good. A door will really help with the heat issue.

Check out the regional forum for others in the PHX area.
