Looks good Buckey. I am inspired to get to work on mine and pour a bigger pad and start setting up some block. I like your concrete lintels you used. I had only imagined using angle iron for that. Will the one lintel that is laying flat support enough wait? I thought you got more support with them turned on edge.

You're quite correct Tap....the logic of the front lentil on it's side will be brought to light later. This one will support only the oven landing.
I'm pouring 8 in. of support and insulation over this lentil so it will be fine.

Further back (about 2 feet) is another row of block (in the base) which will support the front wall of the structure on top of the 8 in. of oven base and insulation.
The front opening (where most would use for wood storage) I will be installing a wood burning stove which will be used for.....duh...burning wood just for heat and atmosphere on the patio.
Things are progressing slowly.....I'm not spending a penny unless I have to to get through the winter....
No Complaints.....God's in control....

Looks like were building the same thing. I will install a wood burning stove under my oven as well. I have the pad poured now and need to get some block. I may try to copy your concrete lintels. I do not know where to get them. Are they standard lengths that you have to cut to your opening?

How do you plan on venting your stove? I have a couple of ideas but have not decided on one yet. What kinda of stove are you going to install?

Tap, I bought the lintels at the local concrete batch mix plant...anyplace that sells brick, block or concrete should have them. They are available in different lengths. These are 4 ft.

I'll vent the stove up through the oven/insulation base that will pass through the transition between the oven itself and the outer door. That way, I can use it with the inner and outer doors on as just a fireplace/Stove.....

I'm also going to investigate the possibility of using the oven as a smoker with a damper in place in the transition but that's down the road...

Work's picking up so I may be able to continue with the build soon and get the pics up..

Buckey,

I have a question about pouring the floor of the oven. I have all my brick walls set up and don't know what to do next. Can I pour a 3 inch top (as the floor) with steel in it and then use 2 inches of the FB board (I don't know what the FB board is, but i've seen it mentioned) on top of the 3 inch floor and then set my fire brick or soapstone on top of the fb board? I will try to post some pics.
