Help with hearth and landing size
 
I am buildiing a Pompei oven INSIDE my kitchen. The constraints of the layout have limited my stand to 41" wide to 36" deep. Can the depth be increased through the use of a cantileavered landing?

I am backing into the dimensions...2.25" deep bricks ( I am in thermal mass school that wants a shorter heat up period), 3" insulation and .5" fireproof backer board. Based upon these numbers I am looking at an oven hearth of about 28". How do I design the opening height/ width- use the 67% of oven height rule? How does one design the landing area? exactyl over the slab? or use cantileaver to extend it a bit?

Rebar- I have peices longer than necessary for the support matrix. Can I just bend the peices instead of cutting them and wire them together?

Any photos of this stage of the project?

THANKS

How do I design the opening height/ width- use the 67% of oven height rule?...door height should be about 63% of interior dome height...as far as width I think most ovens are 16 to 18 inches...I guess about equal to the radius of your oven dome might be a good estimate...then round up

Rebar- I have peices longer than necessary for the support matrix. Can I just bend the peices instead of cutting them and wire them together?...I wouldn't see any reason why you couldn't

THANKS...no problem at all

Best

Yes, check out Ken's thread or mine.
