How long did it take you to build your oven?
 
I am curious about the time it takes people from start to finish. My brother and I built our first one in 8 days. Two tow build the base, three to build the dome, two to insulate and stucco, and one to tile the base. There was also a day after that we used to clean up the area, install the soapstone cooking surface, and build the aluminum door.
How long does it take everyone else? I don't know if I can post pics on here, but I have them on face book. Thanks oven builders.

Wow, that was fast...Posting pictures is fairly easy-- just press the manage attachments button under the text box when you post. I would love to see what you have done..as would others I am sure. I am into my third summer finishing it up.

I am on face book at Trimwerks. If you search for that you can see most of my pics. I am on a mobile and can't post here. I will try tonight. Let me know what you think if anyone looks up Trimwerks on face book. Thanks guys.

My first one took me 3 days, the second one a couple of months.

If you count all of the research, building tools, excavating, finding materials, purchasing tools equipment and the like I am over a year now and just poured my foundation yesterday. I figure it will take me another two months to complete. Here is hoping that is a good estimate.

It took me 8 months to finish the oven, 4 more to do the prep area with sink, and tile. But it was the first time I had done any of this so I was slow. I only worked on weekends and took about a month break from the oven over the holidays.

Almost 2 years, so far, but I built the oven itself in a couple of days. The rest is fenestration.

Steven,

Were you and your bro moving so fast that you completed the dome and enclosure you forgot to install the soapstone floor? :D Can't get into Trimwerkson Facebook. Would love to see your build pics here.

Lol. No. We put the soapstone in afterwards. We make a template, have it cut and then install it.
