Some more pics.
The chimney draws so well Im wondering how Im going to keep the toppings on the pizzas?

Hopefully the way Ive set the tin on top of the chimney will stop the roof from burning..

I started the cure today, I didnt use a mild fire as Ive used very little water to build the oven.

Yet the oven felt humid and never got above 170c, the top of the oven where I used some left over castable was very wet and you could feel the moisture coming out of it.

He now has silicosis and his lungs are indeed hardening up, so Id rather take the soft girly man approach.

Ive already had phenomia and have scared lungs, I just cant risk being a "man" anymore.

You're asking for trouble, if you see steam then you're going way too quick.

I dont get what can fail?
I didnt use mortar on any of the oven but used high temp refractory glue which was well and truly set over a week ago.

The castable on top is just for bulk nothing else.

The firebricks wont fail will they?

OK check the manufacturers recommendations re refractory glue. Firebricks should be ok, they're porous and not vitrified, but be aware that water increases it's volume by 1000 when it turns to steam so you don't want this to happen suddenly.

Cutting in the gable.
In Pic 1 you can see how it may look when finished there will be a double string of terracotta tiles just below the stone cap.

The shaped corbels are for a stone lintel to sit on, I had to let them set as the lintel weighs about 40 or 50 kilos.

The slot above the arch is for the damper.
