I csat my first oven in the UK, it took me a few days to make the forms (And that is my job) I now live abroad and decided to build a brick oven, it only took 1 day, cost much less looks much better and I have never laid a brick in my life. Just use normal red brick for the dome and refractory brick for the slab.

Hello simsavage and other U.K members

I am also interested in finding out if storage heater bricks work. After reading many posts on FB forum over the last 4 months I realise that there are many types of fire/refractory bricks and would like to know if storage heater bricks actually work in a wood-oven.

The problem here in Blighty is that fire-brick suppliers are very thin on the ground. Forno Bravo U.K have a good range of ready made/kit oven's and wood-oven accessories but to find builders merchants or suppliers of basic oven building materials is very difficult.

Because of this problem I have been trying to compile a list of suppliers in the U.K. Any Brits wishing to help with names info etc. can leave a message on my home page or( if it's O.K with FB mods) click on this link for more info

HI Folks.
Update on the materials used on my oven, finished in the summer-- I used the floor pamments, made from terracotta for the floor,very hard things ,but the diamond blade cut them ok in a hand held grindette. For the dome I purchased some bricks and the ready made mortar from Vitcas, they are so helpful it was worth every penny.
