Hi Bruno,

It's recommended to wait 30 days before painting oven stucco, but now there are some new exterior primers that you can use earlier. Be careful and choose the right paint. I chose to wait.

Yep, they are the ones David.

Thanks to both of you for your advice guys. I'm in no hurry to paint it yet as I have plenty of other jobs that need to be done to complete the outdoor kitchen area.

It has been 30 days. So, how is it coming? Did you paint it yet?

The curing process went well. Just 2 or 3 fine hairline crack on the surface of the render around the vent/flue area that appear when the oven is really hot. As I will be painting it anyway, I plan on sealing them with an acrylic gap filler before painting.

Still getting used to cooking and its been great fun. First meal was roast chicken with vege's which everyone loved. Ive cooked pizza twice. The first time was last Monday and it was fantastic. I honestly believe they were the best pizza's I've ever had. Beautifully thin & crispy dough, and watching the crust puff up before my eyes as I placed the pizza onto the cooking floor was fantastic.

The second pizza night was on Saturday night. My wife decided to try a different dough recipe as it was quicker than the one I used, however, it didnt live up to the taste of my first batch. I think i'll stick to my recipe from now on. It takes longer but i think it's well worth it.

Having a great time with the oven, and i'm looking forward to many fun times shared with family & friends over the coming summer months.

As far as the outdoor kitchen goes, I bought a second hand ceaserstone bench with an undermount double oliveri sink for just $200. It's 3 meters long which fits my area exactly, and it was a real bargain. I also bought a 3 metre long by 600mm high louvre window on Ebay that I will be installing above the bench. I'm planning to close off the walls around the bench & WFO so the window will add some light & ventilation when needed without getting dust and debris into the kitchen area. Looking forward to the work ahead.

BTW - although the bench is undercover, it will still be exposed to sunlight & maybe rain depending on the angles and time of day. I know granite is impervious to the elements and I was wondering if anyone knows about the suitability of these man made stone benches to the weather. Should i make a waterproof/UV resistant cover for the bench ???

Regards,
Bruno

Looks great, I built my oven by hand, 1 meter inside diameter similar to yours. I used vermiculite for insulation, keeps the heat in so well that the snow does not melt off the roof, not that that is an issue for you....

Quite the opposite. I actually held my first big pizza night and invited all the relatives over for a pool & pizza party. The problem was, I decided to hold it on the 18th January this year - the hottest ever recorded day in our cities history. It reached over 46 degrees Celsius where I live (approx 115F). I think I needed the insulation on the oven to keep the heat out and stop the pizzas burning - it was a scorcher. Thankfully the pool was close by and everyone had a great night regardless.

Cheers,
Bruno

Slow but steady progress on the outdoor kitchen since my last post. I've added some new photos to show where I'm up to.

Original plan was to make base using steel studs covered in blueboard which will then be rendered.

While browsing through Ebay one day, I found someone selling some brand new stainless steel bbq base cabinets. Luckily, they were modular units that could be connected together and the size of three of them together was perfect for my space. I therefore removed the existing base and decided to use the bbq bases instead. Not only do they look great, but they give me more storage under the bench and easy access to under sink plumbing.

I built them on a treated timber base which will be tiled over and used as the kickboard. I also had to raise the height to bring the bench up to 900mm, so i used the steel studs to build a raised base for the bench.

The bench was also found on Ebay and was EXACTLY the width I needed (when installed, I had about a 3-4mm clearance on each side. It included an undermount sink and is made of ceaserstone.
