thanks, i hope it all comes together soon. the weather has really slowed the finish work down. i found a nice granite shelf for the front in black. i think that will be a nice contrast to the cover

The manufacturer gives us a tight working temperature range, and your weather is a lot colder than what they specify.

Does anyone have hands-on experience using a real refractory mortar in colder temperatures?

the cover is metal and weighs 91 pounds so when the whole thing is finished the oven will be under 400 pounds.

finally used my oven tonight, it takes longer than the primevera to get to temperature, but it holds it much better. i was shooting for 800 deg floor , which seems to give good balance top and bottom. the oven cooked nicely ,not a big difference over the primevera 70, but the primevera needed a break in period before i got good results at higher temps.enclosed are pics

Very nice Zaman,

Give her a little time to really dry out, and you will be looking very good. I think you will see even faster heat up and better heat retention (and better high heat pizza baking). Go for the char!
