When I was inside the wife came out and started laughing at me. I felt like I was caving when I was a few kilos less than I am now.

The good news is that (touch wood) you will only have to do it once.

When I did my oven I did the outer arch and vent after I finished the dome so it was much easier to fit inside the oven to clean up the bricks without the outer arch stopping access.

That said, it was still difficult & uncomfortable!

It's a good looking build Doug.

I sent my daughter in, child labor laws be damned :eek:
Seriously, she was an adult at the time (22) and considerably smaller (OK, skinnier) than dear old dad. :o

there was no way in hell my shoulders were fitting through my door :p

Lucky I cleaned most of it up while there was still a hole.

I cant work out as to why you would want to have the inside of the oven "clean"..... ?:confused:

Doug, Your pictures freak me out just looking at them - I am claustrophobic. That's why I went the route I did, no mortar. There was no way I was going to crawl into the hole.

I fit although there wasn't much room for a table and chairs,

If one doesn't have a WFO large enough to get into, how does one make repairs? Or is such a WFO a tear down and rebuild should repairs become necessary?
Bests,
Wiley

As a spelunker who has over the years squeezed through a few cave "mouse holes" that were too tight to get through without exhaling, I know the feeling well, and it is something not easily accepted by one's brain. Because of this, I consider the act of climbing into one's oven to clean it the same as being inserted into a chamber (which I've done also) to have an MRI: piece of cake. At least if I ever got stuck cleaning my oven and there's still a hole on top my wife could hand me a cold one!
