Default Re: 36" build in Tallahassee - AKA Bruce's Folly

I am new here and am truly impressed with your work. I am wanting to add a wood burning brick oven to the side of my house. Your work convinced me that I can get it done...

I appreciate it, would not have know otherwise. Looks like this three day pause in the build came at a very good time. Just to be sure, nature appears ready to enforce the pause as well, weather forecast is for heavy rains over the next three days.

It's been raining on and off here the last 5 days, the last two have been steady. Today looks like another washout..hopefully tomorrow I can work on the roof rafters.

Chef, welcome to the forum. Reminds of the saying - the amazing thing about a dancing bear is not how well he dances, but the fact he dances at all.

Having said that, I have truly found the project to be very manageable. As I think I mentioned (and Dave and others remind me), the design of this oven is very forgiving. Basically, if the dome is self supporting, insulated, and kept dry the oven will be functional. I came into this never having cut or laid a brick, and while my joints are not as uniform as I would like; I am convinced they will hold. I will know more about how well they hold if I decide to tear down the last two levels. Anyways, what should give you confidence is that someone with my initial skill set can put together a working oven (okay I am projecting into the future here). Let me know when you are getting ready to build and I will share my "wish I had know before I started list."

Chef,
After I wrote the above I checked your profile and posts. I noticed you indicated a disability and am curious regarding the extent of physical limitations. Also saw you worked in forensic science, I worked as a forensic psychologist the last 10 years before I retired. Bruce

A funny thing happened on the way to a verdict. The plaintiff withdrew her complaint. Turned out her lawyer had not filled documentation of damages in time and it was ruled inadmissible. So have been working on oven between showers. Bruce

Rained out today. I decided to try cutting back on the last row and adjusting tilt. Probably would have been easier to just take down the previous two rows but I was afraid I'd end up taking down a brunch more. Anyways here is a pick of progress to date.

Question Re: 36" build in Tallahassee - AKA Bruce's Folly

Gudday Bruce
That's a bit tricky! Cutting the inside edge off a curve with an angle grinder. Its done now but you take it easy with that thing though.!!!!
So what's the plan now ? I noted the ply already fitted?
Regards Dave
