castable oven...the igloo dog house?
 
I am nearing completion and I was just wondering about casting

Why couldn't you just buy a couple of those igloo style doghouses
flip em upside down
Put one inside the other
seal off the doors
Leave about a 4" gap between the units and
Pour castable to the top
The result would be a pompei style cast unit....seems like it would work
and no fuss cutting bricks
the doorway would serve as the chimney location and entrance

Thoughts anyone

I know I've read about that idea somewhere on the site, back when I first joined and just read and read past threads. I don't think anyone ever tried it, though.

Someone has done this - not with the dog house, but forms he built. (I believe he was in the Santa Cruz area) I recall that you needed to add stainless steel needles (they do sell them) to keep the cast together. The only obvious issue I see, is that you will be 4 inches at the top and some what thinner at the bottom of the cast - should work. In my opinion though - If you built to that level - just get er done. :)

You'll find some detailed discussion here

If you search the forum for Dogloo you'll come up with about 3 threads discussing it. I am not sure if anyone has actually followed thru.
