Nikki - there was someone here a while back (redbricknick?) that was talking about using pennies - that puts it around $6.00 / ft. Very affordable, just a pain to install.

Nikki, Congrats on your oven! I'm away from my build for a week and going through withdraw syndrome! Love the pictures of your first fire and pizzas. More inspiration to wet my obsession!

I'm still not sure how I'm going to do my enclosure... an igloo / dome, or walled structure. It rains so much here in Costa Rica that I'd probably be safer with walls and a roof, but my wife prefers the look of the igloo. I've still got several weeks of dome left to go before crossing that bridge though!

congrats again!

Hey Mavano--I remember seeing the pictures of your build, but not making particular note of how you did the enclosure at the time because I was still thinking I'd do a dome finish. Do you have any more pictures of the enclosure and roof part of your build? I'd love to pour over them.

My husband and daughter are away for the weekend on an Indian Princesses campout, so I spent some hours working on the stone veneer work on the stand. I'm taking it slowly, but that's mostly because I'm just very slow at this surface work. It's a big puzzle, and I've never been a particular fan of puzzles. Still, it's satisfying, though I wish I could progress a little more quickly. I definitely have many days of work ahead of me. I'd better get cracking before it gets too hot. Highs of 76 today.



Les--I love the idea of pennies! Imagine getting your hands on one of those penny souvenir smusher machines. It would look like itty bitty fishscale shingles. I'm enchanted. I bet I could get a lot of friends to donate pennies from their coin jars, too. ;-)

Looks really good, Nikki. I don't know how you're doing it, but when I do the stone like that, I lay it out in patches on the floor before I put it up on the oven. Still a puzzle, but it takes less time to get it up and wastes less mortar that way.

Are you counting down for your trip yet?

Now you're talking - that gets the price per foot down to around zero! Not to shabby. If you can't get your hands on one of those smashers - you could use a ball peen hammer if you have the patience. That would look pretty damn cool.

Hi Nikki it looks like you're doing exactly what I did (except the stone face I wanted to keep costs down) I used cement boards for the whole enclosure and placed the corrugated composite material on the roof screwed it down in the valleys and sealed the screw head with roof (black pitch like) caulking for water proofing , the material for the roof come in 4x6 sheets at Menards in 4 different colors I thought Terra cotta color would be appropriate for your surroundings, BDW it looks awesome good job, I'm sorry I did not take any pict. while working on the enclosure you're doing very well ,be sure to waterproof your cement boards I used a waterproofing mix called SUNNYDAY it comes in a powder form in buckets you mix it with water and add color that is used for coloring concrete I purchased both at Home Depot ,mix it to a consistency for walls and trowel it on any way you like, mix the coloring with the water then add the powder, you be the judge on the amount of the color to add . made any bread yet Bye.
