This plan sounds more salient. The insulation layers below and above the oven are critical to it's efficiency. Four inches of vermicrete below your firebrick floor will prove more effective than two inches. Since you will be casting your dome, you may want to take a look at what others did in the builds labeled 'Other Oven Types' on this site.

Well a couple of weeks on and a lot more reading done on the forum, I now realize that I need to re think this build , I am going away for the next week and will get my head around the way I now want this build to go and will post some questions on my return , I still cant manage to find out how to post pictures on the thread so if someone could direct me on this issue then I will post some pictures, I still plan to make a mould so that I can make 3 ovens and have some ideas for this and the photos are waiting, more in a weeks time, many thanks ,
Mark

These 3 pics should have been the first ones I posted on the build. this is how I started the build , using a beach ball , a circle of hard board and some cling film, this was the covered with plaster and cloth then more plaster and then fiber glass

This set of pictures are the fiber glass mould being removed from the former, the plaster was chipped away and the raggy edges cut , I am now going to give it another couple of layers of fiber glass as it a bit floppy !
I am also going to smooth it both on the inside and outside as I am going to have a go at casting one oven over the top of the mould and a second smaller one on the inside, just need to find a bit more time from somewhere !
