WC DAD...
You should put at least 4 inches of vermicrete or pericrete on top of the slab,, before you put the oven floor down,, I got some vermiculite board off ebay when I was building, Really cheap.. so I put 1 inch of board and 4 inches of vermicrete,,

If you havent read thru the free plans already,, do here's the link Brick Oven Plans | Build an Italian Brick Oven

Here also are a few pics of how I did it,,,,,

Cheers
Mark

the front end of the oven will be sitting under the Pergola we are building and the chimney will extend up thru it
You will need to maintain the clearances you would with any other frame structure: It's two inches between a masonry chimney and the framing of the roof, if you're using a stainless flue unit, the manufacturer will specify the clearances needed. Also, your chimney will have to be two feet above anything within ten feet.

ok so I was making it harder than I needed to as far as putting images in here.
I have to make my forms tomorrow morning. I probly won't be able to get the concrete guy to come out until early next week but I'm going to have the forms done tomorrow morning anyway. That way I can start on some of the grading that needs to be done. How long did you folks have to wait after the slab is poured before you dry stack and fill your blocks?

Hey WCD
You are off to a good start,, I waited a week before drystacking and filling my blocks.. I believe 7 days is minimum and I was at work during the week anyway.. Im sure if Im wrong someone will post the correct answer..

If you have the picture thing figured out.. I say start a new post under Pompeii Oven construction and you will have a nice continuing reference and thread for the future.. You can always refer back to for info or ideas.. I will certainly be following your build..

You can start an album as well,,,
Cheers
Mark
