HI 250
Not sure of my number, been lerking here for a while now,
Now the hugs are over, How's the oven planning/building going?
I am just up the road from you and in a similar position in my build. I have the stand build, rending started, damm rain but still not sure about the oven it's self. I am looking at cast in place, full fire brick build or just get the diy kit from bunnings....
What are your oven plans?
Rob

They're also made in China, so your hard earned leaves the country.

Thanks Brickie and David s
I was hopeing someone experenced and has seen one would comment. The kit is only $850 but....
The floor insulation is thin and the floor bricks are only 25mm thick. The built ones seem to have the floor loose and floating. The one on display is cracked and never been fired ! Not sure if it's ment to be that way or not. ID is also 660mm. If I went that way better floor insulation and extra bricks in base would be required.I have friends with one and they are happy but not sure if I would be, kinda fussy after using a great one in a resturant a few years back!
Be keen to share notes with another local in the build
Rob

hey Rob, i definitely agree with Al, i'm sure you would much more appreciate building your own oven anyway...besides, wheres the fun in building your very own wood-fired oven with your own blood/sweat & tears (although, hope there not much blood involved, come to think of it, i dont want any sweat or tears either..).
Rob, i am very much a novice and the new guy around here, so i'll try not to give you too much advice (because it will possibly be wrong ).
My oven will also be a castable refractory style oven over a sand dome, i was going to go the full brick dome, but thought this was easier for my first attempt at an oven. Besides, if i'm not happy with it, or it falls down, i'll just make another one, with more experience under my belt, i should get it right the second time around. I know theres a few builders around here that have made a second oven, so i wouldnt be the first.
If your close to Brissy Rob, maybe we can help each other out a bit, moral support if anything .
This bloody rain is relentless here, i want to get out and do more to the base (have to tile top), but just cant, i'm hoping it will ease today.
I've rigged up a temporary 3x3 gazebo over the top of the oven & base, its helping to keep rain off the work site.
You got any pics of your project so far Rob?. I keep saying i'll put pics up ( & i will), i'm just forgetful .
Its always great to see other peoples ideas and imagination at work with their ovens.

Aussie Pete,
If you are only at the supporting slab stage consider coating it with Bondcrete 4:1 or similar to prevent rising damp. In incessant rain as you do experience in Bris. Water can wick right up the stand and into your oven. Particularly if you have a thick vermicrete layer which holds stacks of water, it's like sponge.
Dave
