Just Getting Started Washington Coast
 
We are laying out our Island and have been looking at everyone's pictures we can for ideas. It looks like many of the inclosures put the oven quite far back in the opening, does anyone have advice for us as to what is best?

In your planning, just remember that you need to reach (with the aid of various tools) the back of the oven. Our entry is three inches wider than the oven opening and only 15 inches deep.

In addition to the standard entry depth, I added a 12 inch landing. I use it on occasion but I find that I use the counter space on the left more often (I didn't add much counter on the right, just enough for many beverages). With that said, I would make the entry as close to where you will be standing when you cook. Give yourself ample room on the left or right to place the food when it comes out of the oven.

My landing is not battle tested as of yet. But, I think with an extension on both sides of the landing running along an existing retainer wall, it will allow me to stand as close as posible to the oven and have the necessary work space.

The most important thing is to plan ahead so you won't have any surprises along the way. Your entry (and entire build for that matter) can range from the pedestrian (like mine) to the sublime ( like the two above). You are using the gallery pictures, yes?

Lee,

You seem to have a lot of mortar popping out between the bricks of your decorative arch, Are you seeing some high heat in that area or getting a lot of water on it between firings?

What type of mortar did you use on the decorative outer arch?

I have not seen this in my oven yet but it may come over time.

Chip

Lee do you mean you reach 15" to get to the oven opening?
