Hello From Sydney
 
Hi just thought I would say hello I am building a Pompeii oven in the back yard and came across Fronobravo when doing some research.

At this stage all I have is a big hole in the backyard waiting for the slab to be pored.

Welcome aboard
another Aussie to be added to the ever growing list
it sounds like you found the best web site in time before you made same fatal mistakes in your oven build.
Enjoy, ask questions and post heaps of pictures.

Cheers

Neill

Fatal mistakes sounds a bit daunting.

Now I am getting worried.

Naw, don't worry JDO7. The only fatal mistakes we have were all in our heads until we found this website and forum. As Neill said, you can ask any questions and the planning stage is a lot fun and surprisingly informative. .

I think the best things you can find on this site that will aid you is:
A proper dome height for your oven inner arch entry height and width
A proper vent opening (in the correct location no less) and size
The right kind/amount of insulation UNDER the oven floor and over the oven.
Putting a 1" reveal around the entire inner arch opening to accept a tight door.
And you get the latest info on the current controversy (or non-controversy) about using a full height soldier course (your 1st course) or just using 2 rows of the half bricks instead of a vertical soldier course.

It's definitely a project anyone can do and lot's of us "non-contractor-desk-types" have proved, can be built by anyone. So good luck, ask lots of questions. Here is a new web album I just made of my entire build in 100 pics
Picasa Web Albums - Dino - Oven in 100 pics that might be helpful but it's more fun to check out everyone elses too.

Cheers, Dino

Cool that is reassuring. I am buying the oven as a kit of Firebricks which I have to cut too size from Field Furnace here in Sydney. They provide a DVD for dummies so I am hoping it shouldn't be too bad.

Any respectable Australian pizza oven kit should include at least one pallet of beer as part of the price.

Would the beer arrive before the build or after?:) gene

Does anyone know where the indespensible tool can be purchased from? I am going to have issued with the build without a boubt and this thing looks like a great help.
