Good point. The end result will be an igloo shape. I will check out Brian's steel bracket. I am making a steel bracket for the inner entrance door (poor planning, don't ask )

Off to the property today, see if I can get the insulation on the dome dome and the outer crust applied ready for mosaic. The outer layer, add vermiculite to the mix?

So it sounds like you are going Igloo. No experience here but you will need insulation, a support layer, then "waterproof" stucco as an outer shell (mosaic tiles on top look cool). The insulation layer can be ceramic fiber blanket - OR I suspect there have been igloo insulated with a v-crete concoction - But such a layer would not be waterproof and would need to be covered.

That's the plan, Fiber blanket covered with wire mesh for the out stucco to attach too. The stucco is blended with verisite and plastered on. This will be done in several layers to give it strength, Not sure how thick I should make this as the first layer feels like a candy shell of a M&M that lost it's peanut

Working on the design for mosaic with my wife, collecting and tiles we can to recycle for this task.

The oven gets a final coat of mortar to make it smooth for the Mosaic. My neighbor did the final coat, he is very good.

Thumbs up Re: New Build Oven At Granite Falls

Made some pizza dough Thursday evening. Friday went out to the property and got the oven warmed up. Worked the dough into a perfect disk (NOT )
Simple topping of tomatoes and mushrooms precooked in a cast iron skillet in the oven. Simple tomato sauce, fresh basil, and of course mozzarella.

WooooHoooo FIRST PIZZA



This is bar far the best pizza I can remember (remember being the operative word)

Yummmmmm
