Yes I am going to just get on with the vermiculite pour and stop faffing around. Thanks for the link to your construction Neill.

Thumbs up Re: Vermiculite fire bricks

the first post of my oven construction was mistakenly put under 'Pompeii oven construction' but the continuation of the oven is found at:
http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...-4-a-2045.html (Neill’s Pompeii #4)
where I was continuing with the build. I lost #9 posting (James put it under 'Pizza' thread:
http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f10/...zzas-2117.html (Making First Pizzas)
and I continued with the build and illumination at:
http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...10-a-2119.html (Neill's Pompeii #10)
The cooking parts are at:
http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f25/...-veg-2158.html (Neill's pizzas, breads and roast lamb with veg)
and the last posting, ie. the oven doors is:
I hope this helps you out with your build.

Only too happy to help out.
I just recieved a parcel from one of your fellow UK residence, a 10 station thermocouple switch. He undersold it to me with a gross underestimate for postage.
Forewarded the difference to him this morning.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any queries with your build.
I have tried to give a straight foreward photographic building progress and explanation as I see it as a relatively easy task if you look at one simple task at a time, rather than at the final overall project.
This forum makes life very easy if you take the steps, one at a time.... you will get there and if you keep working on it, quicker than you think. I found that I was excited at the progress and consequently built mine in the rain, just got around the inconvenience with a simple tarp strung up over the actual oven. It was in fact fun to build and now I am enjoying it, as are our family and friends.
Now I need to get into the patio and pergola renovations that will take a lot more time and money, but what the heck, live and enjoy!
Still have a lot to learn about cooking as this is now getting me into unknown territory, but have not had a 'disaster' as yet, first pizza didn't look too flash, but by hell it tasted fine, first bread - one was a little scorched, but know and have solved that problem!
I hope you enjoy it as much as the rest of us.
All the very best.
