Your patio looks very nice. I see the cutting of a lot pavers in your future. That will be good practice for your fire brick cutting.

Looking good. Lots of brick cutting ahead. With the today' snow, i suppose you will be in a holding pattern until a thaw. Keep posting pics.

We thawed out and the patio was finished today!

Last week I bought the fiber board from HiTemp in Fenton, MO. This week I am picking up the initial load of firebrick and mortar. Alsey Flue-Set seems to be all I can get so I'm going with that unless someone convinces me otherwise. A bit lazy to do the DIY mix method.

Today was 80 degrees. Tonight is storms and snow. I might might start on the dome Saturday though.

Tried to change thread title because the oven will officially be 42"

On Saturday morning I picked up the first load of fire brick from Kirkwood Material in STL. They are Alsey medium duty. Plus 2 bags of Flue Set.

I spent most of the day finishing the pavers in the oven base so I can say that the patio is finally 100% complete.

Sunday was more nasty winter in St. Louis so I didn't get much done. I just laid out the oven floor in my garage and I'm now in the process of figuring out cuts and landing size/angle etc. I find myself using Pizza Bob's build for most of my inspiration

Your project will look great when it is done. I have a big patio to do too but I think I will let it take the back seat to the oven. I'm excited to see your finished product. The oven/hearth looks great. I like that you decided to remove the cement board and go with the plywood. I did the same but ended up leaving mine in place. It will eventually be covered and unseen but it was just a bit lazy letting it sit on the bricks. I guess I felt like being lazy that day. Good luck with your build I'm looking forward to following.

That's looking good Merc. After waiting out the weather and having your paving completed the project will move on quickly from here. Will watch with interest, it is shaping up to be quite special.
