Looks like it will burn well ..... for a little while.

It seems that ppl are scared of the fact that these ovens get hot inside, hence the need to build them on the neighbours fence line.
They rarely get (or is that getten? ) hot on the outside if built correctly, so why do ppl build it so far away from the inside kitchen?

Mine is built 4 steps away from the back door (inside kitchen).

Al, many of us in the US have restrictive fire codes and must build 10-20 ft or more from any combustables, this sometimes puts our ovens a great distance from the house.

I was lucky in my case having no wood decking or other srtuctures within 15 ft and it is near the kitchen. The funny part is that where the oven sits is about the only place in my back yard it could have gone without being within 15 ft of something that burns.

FYI: That place near the fence has already been ruled out as it blocks the neighbors view of something. I'm now much closer to the house and thinking of building right next to the deck next to the house, with a height capable of cooking from the deck.

I agree with Mr Virginia's assessment of the loads. While the idea of building an oven you can use from your deck is a practical approach, I think you would want to re-evaluate your foundation. Bye the time your through designing it, your foundation may resemble the Tower of Pisa more than anything else.
Naturally, leaning ( or wind load may need to be considered because of both height, weight and wind. Note: I am a rookie oven builder, but I have built many buildings over the years. Look around, your problem is not unique, someone has had to already done this. Perhaps you can borrow their engineering.

We're all crazy, so what's the big deal ?

Mr Virginia...LOL No worries the foundation is sound. I build stuff also...I even have a license that allows me to build in Virginia.

Please don't get me started about engineering and engineers. You should see the "engineered" plans that cross my desk. Enough said!

I did a mock up of my 1st oven dome with scrap steel garden edging.....was mainly because I just had no idea on the dome arch sizing I wanted

Check this build if you are thinking about a wood/timber foundation.
