Thanks Gulf - I am really inspired by your oven (the great craftsmanship...and the drawer...and the roof...it just goes on and on).

I just acquired some garage door track from a neighbor, and have some rollers on the way from a coworker. So it looks like I'll be building a drawer too.

Looks good! I did it the other way around and poured concrete around the outside and filled the 'keyhole' with vermicrete. I expect it is a matter of choice and how you intend to finish the oven. I did the igloo.

Look forward to watching your progress, you are off to a great start.

As always, thanks for the comments and tips.

Now that we are back from a fantastic holiday trip to the Gulf Coast, I was able to get back on track today with the oven construction!

Laid out the brick floor and applied my template:





I have no experience cutting brick - learning as I go...

Wow you are on your way to a very strong, technically perfect build. Keep it going. I too had never cut a brick before....bordering on Expert now haha.

This is a fun journey you are embarking on. Nice to have your daughter interested as well. Not something she will likely forget.

Keep the pics coming..

Great start with the floor and base. Gonna be following your build closely. Yes, Gulf's build is a good baseline to follow.

"technically perfect" probably won't be achieved in our build - but it's a great goal! I think our oven will be "family perfect"...and I am looking forward to the times we can use it. And, by the way, my wife and all three of our teenagers have been involved so far - they just haven't all made the photos. Yes, it has been hard but fun work so far...

Thanks! Regarding Gulf's build and my comments, I'm sure there are other builds out there that deserve similar accolades. But I've studied Gulf's photos and build in depth. I just haven't had time to study the others (yet).
