Finished out and inner arch rough ins, cleaned up brick, and set two more courses. Now I need to start cutting courses with bevels as some joints are larger than I would like. Anyday will have to put this project on hold as the weather is sure to change to snow.....

We’ve decided to cheat the weather a bit. Since our oven build is under the patio, we built a poly sheeting tent, and with a propane heater the build room gets to 80 degrees with the heater on high. We’ve completed the chimney tie in and extended 6 feet of double wall pipe out the roof. Some fiberglass tape and a small bead of door gasket caulking should give a decent seal. The tape was left over from the door construction.

The dome/arch tie in is done, and some of chain 7 bricks are set. The end of the brick cutting is in sight. We keep the saw in the garage which is close by for cutting bricks without having to haul the saw outside and saves on cleaning time each day.

We also started the red brick which will go around the oven by getting most of the brick cut and set at the landing.

Built the door in the evenings after work a week or so ago. The forum had a lot of great ideas to look at which we based the door on. Since we had enough 2” insulation board saved for the door, we used that sandwiched in between two sheets of metal bought at Lowes. Ordered the thermometer online for $18 and the fiberglass tape should keep the board from shedding fibers which wouldn’t be good.

We managed to get most of the red brick around the oven mortared down and waiting for the grout bag. Left space for the insulation blanket, and the stucco should "bleed" over the brick an inch or so giving a good barrier against water coming with high winds on the lawn side of the oven.

Hi Dave

Thanks! We're really looking forward to wrapping up the brickwork and cooking some food instead.

Seems to me like you are moving pretty fast. I wish I was able to move that quick. Great work. The door looks pretty good.

Thanks DR-appreciate the encouraging thoughts. Probably will be on hold for a while now. Even with the plastic tent and heater the weather calling for maybe 6" of snow tomorrow and single digit temps later this week it will be too cold for working on the oven. Of course we'd rather be shoveling snow than mortaring bricks LOL [not]

Yep we had about six inches today. I was hoping to get the counter top formed up and poured before snow but oh well. Guess I'll have to wait for the spring now.
