I just followed the forno bravo suggestions. Their perfect pizza dough by weight recipe (made in the bread machine, dough cycle, incredibly easy), and the sauce was simply drained and hand-crushed san marzano tomatoes. My brother in law, who worked in higher-end independent pizza shops for nearly 20 years, complimented me on the sauce and asked how I made it. Couldn't be easier!

My Dad helped us do the metal framing this afternoon. It took about six hours to do what seemed like a fairly simple job. We'll add the cement board tomorrow.





Signing my creation:

What are your plans for the roof? Flat or gabled? For my flat (nearly flat) roof I doubled up heavy gauge studs to form an I beam shape and laid those across the roof when I made my flat roof. After sheathing it with concrete board it felt pretty solid - I never tried to stand on it or anything....

Nice job on the framing. I think the metal studs were a fun part of my oven - so many different materials you can choose to play with!!!

We're going for a roof just like yours, Christo. Flat, angled back slightly for drainage. For the moment we're just going to cover with concrete backerboard to get the structure basically waterproof. Eventually, the idea is to do a copper roof. I'm getting a bid from a local guy, and need to start emailing and calling copper roofing suppliers that ship from around the country, figure out the best way to do this. I have a vision in my imagination, but I have no real idea of how to achieve it yet. ;-)

Well, so far the vision in your head has translated to the real world pretty well!

You all did a great job on the enclosure.

I don't get to sign mine until I finish the stucco and tile this spring... but you can bet I am going to do it!

I think the concrete backer board is going to work really well for the roof - you won't have to worry about burning anything as they solder the seams together!!!

I used EPDM membrane on mine - but looking back wonder if I could have just used some stucco or surface bonding cement to create a waterproof roof.

Good luck - please let us know the values of the quotes you get on the copper. I'm afraid I'll need to have a fainting couch ready for when I see it!!

Looking awesome! Your kitchen is really coming along! I noticed one of the counters only has a back row on cement block. Any reason? I'm guessing you are putting in a grill or something else cool!

Yep--this puppy is sliding right in front of that wall:



We added the wall so that it would look more built-in and cohesive.

Today added some angle bracing metal studs to reinforce the roof beams and put up the first cement-board wall. Then it started raining, unfortunately. This coming weekend is completely booked, and the following weekend we head to Italy, so I'm hoping we can carve out a bit of time on the weekdays to do a bit of work and get the oven waterproof.

Christo--I'm scared to get the bid, too. Copper prices are at a five year low, but that doesn't mean it's cheap. We'll see if my idea can convert into a full-fledged plan or not.
