Thumbs up Re: SE Minnesota insanity

Hey Eric,
a long time since your last report!
Unfortunately I'm too far away to lend a hand, but your project looks like it's on hold.
How's the weather over there affecting your progress as others on the forum are almost snowed in.
How is the 'other half' handling the 'inconvenience' in 'her' kitchen during the build?
Time to put up some more pics mate!

Neill

Hi, I posted a seperate thread re an Indoor oven and SPLATGIRL told me about this thread. I too built several outdoor ovens, my latest one at my present residence completed last year. I am not thinking of doing one inside my basement kitchen reno.

I though perhaps by code, building inspections would defer to woodburning fireplaces and would require a fresh air vent. Somone posted on here about ashes blowing around and my take would be that it should not be any worse than a fireplace since a WFO is deeper. I was planning on designing mine with the 4 inch vent duct in a channel under the WFO imbedded in the concrete slab under the vermiculite or fibre board. Then it would come out in the vent landing area just before the WFO door seal. The kind that fireplaces uses pivot up and point the fresh air to the fireplace so in my case it would point to the inside of the oven. When not in use, just close the vent down. Anyone think of drawbacks with this design?

Funny enough I did not see any details of a vent inclusion in the FB oven kits plans. They are certified for indoor use but no mention of how to integrate a vent into the plans.

Thx

Well, I'm back. Building the foramen arch, which is curved in three dimensions. Lots of brick cutting.

That is really nice. You will be loving that when it's ready for action.....especially in the dead of winter when you have that magnificent fresh baked pizza and breads, etc coming out of the oven.
