Hello,

curious what you are going to put on the Ytong walls. I wanted to do the same as you but when talking to Ytong (Xella in the Netherlands) they said they do not like it to be used outside. Ytong blocks degrade if they get wet for a long time. I now bumped into your thread and also seen the video you referenced when they were building a BBQ. All applications for outside...

So I am curious how you solve that problem.

Thanks for the info. After posting my question I realized that I had a somewhat different build in mind when I talked to the Ytong guys. I also wanted to use it to build "under ground". I would pour concrete below ground level and build upon that leaving me with my Ytong being partialy underground. That was something they did not like at all. Since they build complete houses out of Ytong you seem to be an a very good way.

gl with the build !

but back to oven.
Used Rath mortar (25EUR/pcs)






One question, where is better to put a chimney, closer to the oven part , in the middle of the entrance or closer to the opening?
Thanks

I would suggest the middle of the arch; too close to the door and smoke might pour out the front; to close to the oven and potential for excessive heat loss may exist, though in reality that is one long arch and it probably wouldn't matter either way! Better get long-handled peels The little house turned out very well!
