A few pics.... The interlocking seams are actually about 1" or more so the gaps still leave overlapping material with full thickness of the interlocking pieces. The front pieces are not sitting plump and will need to be braced a bit before I mortar over the seam. I have a strap on these just in case the vent area decides to fall over....

Seams all sealed up with Heatstop50, flue installed and ready for framing the house starting today. The hope is to get it framed in today but leave the roof off so I can cook it a at least few times with no insulation or roof trapping condensation and dry the vermicrete base

And so the enclosure is officially underway....I hope I dont regret using just 25ga studs and track....I built the bases of my kitchen with 16ga which might be a bit overkill....and of course I couldnt find 22 or 20ga easily enough.....just 25ga.....this stuff is like aluminum foil...Hopefully it all tightens up with studs 12" OC and cement backer board tying it all together....

I don't see any insulation on your oven. How wide did you make yoir stand? I'm getting concrete poured for mine hopefully by next week. And then we can get started on the stand.

The oven is on an 8" vermicrete base. The dome insulation will be 1 layer of blanket followed by 6-8" of loose vermiculite (the "house" will be filled).

My base is the "std" Pompeill plan base - 69 x 76. My Volta modular oven is a bit smaller than a 42" Pompeii

Another week and a bit more progress. Managed to build 4 fires this week to begin the process of drying out the vermicrete slab. Most of the house and roof are up and partially sheathed. Managed to get nearly 2 layers of blanket over the whole oven out of one box. Hopefully by next week I ll get a few more fires in and get it all buttoned up and filled up with vermiculite.

A big thanks to BOYLANTA for emailing me offline and helping out with the roof trusses/pitch/venting etc!
