It has been a while for posting photos. I hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I found Travertine tile pavers at Home Depot. They have worked great so far. The door and the oven has come to a grinding halt. I hope to start soon on it when the weather changes. Glass door inserts, roofing and finish the exterior.

Thanks Glenn,

Pooch has cabin fever but otherwise is doing great. He should get his cast off in a few weeks. I see you had a four legged helper also.

Here's to an early spring ,
Dave

Glenn,
I just found your build this morning and really enjoyed following how you built your oven. I'm working on the transition to the inner arch at the moment. Look forward to getting above that. I like your entry and how you tied the bricks to the inner arch. I had something like that in mind, now I have a picture of it. Thank you,

Tom

Hey Glenn, that's an amazing door! Can't wait to see it finished.

I really admire that you've got your counter top done and a framed steel door already and most of us lazy guys put that stuff off until the very end (if we ever do them at all .

Very nice build, everything looks great. It looks like you've made narrow slits along the bottom of the double outer doors for air-intake?

Cheers, Dino

Great looking project and impressive workmanship. I too live in Virgina Beach and hope to start my on 42" WFO this Spring. I have had no luck in finding fire regulations for Va Beach as to dwelling clearances for WFO and the city building permit folks have been of no help. Any suggestions? Also what is a good local source for fire brick and morter.?
Thanks for any help you could provide.

Very nice detail on your suspended slab rebar. That is exactly how it should be done. Many builders make the mistake of not bending the ends of the bars (either down like yours or sideways).

Here are a few pic's of the progress, Placed the concrete for the chimney cap. New pic of the exterior, set the stone on the lower part of the oven.
