hi george... thanks for your concern
the info i have picked up around here is great!!
i know of 2 other WFO that are similar in design (no insulation under hearth) they have cooked pizzas in around 6 mins or less... delicious!
one of them had a party feeding around 30 adults .. and he did not have any problems with heat loss and recommended burning good dry hardwood.

i will add insulation if it needs it at a later date.
regards warren

Looks good, that should retain some of the heat.
I also thought about making a fire proof plug for the top of the chimney but you will lose heat from the bricks anyway.

Very nice, has a clean sharp appearance. What kind of enclosure are you planning for the dome?

Rosemary shrubs would be nice, especially when you cook some lamb...

Thumbs up Re: Park Oven Progress

Given the cost of steel framework, your block construction may be a good alternative to encapsulate the oven. A crisp rendition of a simple and appealing design....To say nothing of your serene and dream-like setting.

Thanks for sharing!

That is one beautiful oven, you have the perfect setting too. What kind of finish are you planning for the block?
