Default Re: floor inside dome or under dome?

I am also at this stage and my oven floor is on the inside - I am a little worried about the floor expanding and inturn cracking the dome or maybe the dome will expand....mmm

I did my floor the same way. No worries, here's the solution:

It's post #47 about half way down the page - with pictures, too!

In theory, the dome and the floor, made of the same material and similarly insulated, will heat up and cool down as a unit. In practice, the fitted-in floor always has a slight gap between the wall and the dome wall which fills up with fluffy wood ash. No problem either way.
