If the Concrete slab is your finished surface, then i'd set a fall outwards from the centre to all sides.

Stand looks great. What size and style oven are you going to build?

Hi Chris

Thanks. Planning on igloo style I think. The hearth width comes to 62.5" so I'm going to build the biggest oven i can fit on that.

Must be nice to have a cement contractor for a neighbor.

Hearth slab is finished. Now we focus on the patio. There won't be much progress on the oven for a while.

Very nice looking foundation and hearth slab. You have more self control than me. I also have a patio planned, but the oven construction is the priority. I can't wait to start cooking! The rest of the project will come along later.

Like Bob, I think that you have more patience than me .

I'm not sure about your particular layout. But, the oven construction, from here to finish, can still be a little messy. Completing the oven first, may keep you from having to cover that pretty patio floor in order to finish it. Also, you can be enjoying some of the great treats from her while the "less important" stuff gets done .

No action on the oven. The patio project has been the priority lately and we are rushing to beat the first winter storm in St. Louis which should arrive in the next 24 hours or so.

It took me forever to pick out pavers. In the end, herringbone pattern with holland stone won out. Wanted it to match the oven floor a bit
