A wood fired oven is supposed to be carbon neutral in that you can plant more trees to make up for the fuel burnt, something you cant do to offset fossil fuel use.

It looks like there is no insulation under the floor bricks. You may regret that decision, unfortunately it's probably a bit late now to retro fit it.

had a quick question, i had planned for 2 small doors opening to a height of14 inches so that i could use more of the space but do you'll think that it would be better to have just one wider door opening with the chimney right over it?

I would go for 1 wide door opening, this would make access to the large oven so much easier.

Can you draw your flue concept on paper, that way it will be easier to give help.

Ok, I thought it looked like normal concrete. If it is insulating castable rather than dense castable it should be ok. Because you have laid the floor straight over it you will have trapped a lot of water that the castable contains. It will take a long time to dry out this layer.

It may well, as they are in the middle of their winter and I note that their humidity is currently 70%. Water evaporation is dependent on temp.humidity and air movement. If indoors there won't be any air movement. Our pottery often dries faster in our winter than in our summer because although the temp is lower the humidity is also lower.
