Welcome Lewis! Sounds like quite a lofty project - house AND wood fired oven. You won't be sorry. Unless, maybe, you start the oven before the house is done.:rolleyes: Once I started my oven, that's all I could do. It just CONSUMED all of my time, energy, and even thoughts.

Welcome aboard.

I'm from Cin and I have a brother in law in Dubuque. I finished my foundation/walls last fall and hope to start on the hearth/oven this spring.

Only thing you may want to consider is how to build your footer or the foundation the oven will sit on given the cold temp in Iowa/frost line.

Good luck,
The badger
