I am getting the hang of downloading pics. the build so far this is a very slow process trying to work between weather, and other projects and working to pay for all of this, but it will be well worth it.

It looks like you are golden in your planning for the rebar. Just bend it over and wire it to the horizontal rebar for the hearth and you'll have a strong and unified perch for the oven

I have a couple of questions but I don't know where to ask them. #1. I bought perlite already but it turns out it is the block fill kind, for block insulation. Will it work for pearlcrete insulation? #2 Will adding fireclay to sackrete hs mortar work for setting the fire brick for the dome? I thought somebody on the forum has done this and I am wondering how it worked. Thanks to the forum for all of the help and insight.

The fins are a pain in the neck to get right. Once you get them in place for the last chain and the keystone leave them until you get done. Some things didn't turn out just right but when the mortar gets hard its tough to change.

Finally the first fire. Lots more to do after this but I am starting to dry out the oven. I found a couple of cracks on the outside but no smoke coming out any where. I am working on everything around it now especially the roof I have to get the mostly finished so I can insulate. I try to do a little bit everyday. It won't be long before pizza and bread.

Looks good. Did you get your insulating blanket at EJ Bartells? If so can I ask what it cost?

I didn't buy the blanket at bartels because we had some left over from some work we did on boiler doors. Partial rolls and some strips and pieces. (some manager wanted to toss them because they were "in the way", so I took him at his word). I priced bartels and they quoted me $67 plus shipping for a box, which is, I think 50 sq.ft. of kaowool blanket. That was at the portland store it might be different in Spokane. All of the refractory suppliers have board also but it is very expensive. I think FB has the best deal on board. I hope this helps.
regards
