Kidding! I am waiting patiently. I have turned my attention to far less exciting tasks such as the lawns and garden. It is spring here and I have lots of seedlings ready to plant. So I am killing time building trellis for tomatoes and cucumbers etc.

The problem is that the oven won't stop looking at me, it is right outside the french doors. I feel like a neglectful parent

Not to harp on with stupid questions, but what did you guys think I could use to stick down my front row of floor tiles?

It's Friday today, so if you are firing up your ovens for pizza tonight, have a slice for me!

Cheers,

Bevan

I see what you mean. Those firebrick tiles are sitting on a layer of pavers ... No room for a mortar bed is there.
You might have to lift the tile and use the angle grinder to cut a space in the paver layer for a mortar bed. Recon it would only need to 2 to 3 ins wide though.
You might also be able to trap those firebrick tiles in with some tile on the front face of the slab. This would be dependent on what you want finish the edge of your slab with I suppose.
I hope something here helps
Regards dave

Thanks brickie ... That would work. I'd forgotten about silastic
Gudday Bevan
No it's not a crazy idea. Brickie has flue damper parts held together with silastic.
He suggested it to me and I've silastic hebel to wood for a insulated door.
So the stuff handles the heat and will be thin enough to do the job ..... Perfect solution, simple and easy.

Hey Dave,

I have been a bit naughty, but the pizza was delicious!

I am nearly up to full temp. I have burnt nearly a cube of wood so far, very low temps initially. I am home 24/7 so was able to nurse the fire and keep it where it needed to be.

I am still taking it easy, and not pushing much harder than the previous fire. The dome has been progressively clearing more and more. No cracks so far, fingers crossed!

I also followed the Shinagawa curing schedule posted on here http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/atta...procedures.jpg . Meaning that I made sure I exceeded none of the figures recommended.

Also made some nice pitas last night too!

Cheers,

Bevan

Yes I know ....WA it ain't. But for Bevan to stay this quite for this long without being up to somfing....I had to find out out. You have to start the somewhere.
Gudday Bevan
OK you've been naughty, but have you anything to add to what you've said . Any thing like how is the pumise insulation working , getting any water flowing out of the structure. It would be pretty wet still but you obviously pleased so far.
I'm sure it was bricky that said that "you just know" when it's properly dry.
Regards dave
