Default Re: help to choose size of an oven

High vault ovens are roughly hemispherical, so a 39 inch oven would be 19.5 high.

Thanks for all the information. I just want to get it right. I guess I have to cut the dome down from 21 inches to 19.5 inches. If the dome height is different would the door opening be different too. Right now the size of the door opening is 20 inches wide and 12.5 high. I would think the height has to be changed. Does anyone know?

The ideal height of the door should be somewhere between 63 and 65% of the dome height. 65% of 19.5 = 12.6 inches. Your numbers look good to me.

Made a mistake on the width size of the oven opening. On the plan it says 26inches wide for the corner angle slab for a 39 inch oven. These are the new measurements I have for the Igloo template. Dome height 19.5 inches, oven opening 26 inches wide and height of opening 12.5 inches. Should these be the correct measurements?

I'm not sure on the width. Check the plans. I think I used 20 inches wide on my 37 inch oven.

Thumbs up Re: help to choose size of an oven

Hi everyone,

I have not been on in awhile. I finally decided on what size oven. I am building a 39 inch oven. It is coming out great. It is a low budget project. I am using leftover materials from other jobs I did. I have some pavers that I am using for the floor base. I also have 4 by 12 blocks that I am using to build the base out of. I am covering the whole thing with culture stone, which I already had. The only materials I had to buy was the mortar, fire clay, sand, 200 fire brick at $ .93 a piece, 8 by 8 clay chimney, vermiculite (not sure spelling is right) and the high temperature insullation. I got a good price on the high temperature insullation, 1 inch thick, for $54 for 50 square feet. The total cost so far is $500. The oven is an igloo style, I will try to post some pictures.

Your pictures are probably too big. Any picture editior, like the good, free irfanview, will let you shrink your pictures to internet size.
