Cool! Sounds like you have a generous area dedicated to your wfo build. On my 0.36 acre "estate"(of which only 1/4 is flat and usable), I don't have a whole lot of room left to devote to my oven area. I look forward to seeing the progress of your build.

If you end up getting up to Asheville let me know you're coming! I'd love to show you my oven and give you a tour of my estate.

Thanks for the offer, maybe I will get there after all. Had a little decent weather this weekend, 45 during the day 30 tonight. I got a some work in on the oven. layed the floor and put in the soldier course, some had said they don't see the need for it. I used it because it seemed like a good spot to start, and like the idea of a "floating floor". Our local sand is a little course but I'm used to it, but if it is your first time laying firebrick a finer sand will give you a little more time before an intial set.

stonejohn,

I also live in Cary... been here for 12 yrs and this is the coldest winter I recall. (another transplant from the north) The wife and I are kicking around the idea of doing a outdoor patio/kitchen and wanted to add a fire pit or fireplace and I been wondering if a oven would work. Keep the pictures coming and give me some inspiration...... good luck with the project.

For those who don't know Cary, locally it stands for Concentrated Area of Relocated Yankees The "C" used to stand for "Contained", but the way Cary has grown, it is far from contained!

Hi Guys, I thought the locals refered to it as the Containment Area of Relocated Yankees, and the Yankees themselves refered to it as the Centralized Area of Relocated Yankees. Anyway, This winter stinks, I need some good weather, I'm working this Saturday, but hope to do some work on sunday morning. Joe, This weekend is the Raleigh home show, at the convention center. I built an outdoor kitchen setup, and a small fireplace for the guys over at Greenscapes, It looked like a decent show this year. Last year was a bust, but it looks like they had a couple of nice setups in the outdoor living genre. Might be worth a look. Think oven!

Hi All, We have had a little better weather, got back to work on the dome rings. Had a decent amount of trouble where the intersection of dome to arch, a few bad cuts and a night to think about a solution and I managed better today.My hendo tool is working great, the finnished dome will be 1" higher then it should be I did not take into consideration the MDF board. I think from here on I need to cut the compound angles on the bricks.

Just to pipe in, I'm originally from Chapel Hill. Props to my fellow Carolinians. Congrats on the oven.
