Looks great Chris. I recommend using Dryvit for the stucco. It's an acrylic base and it is water proof. It also comes in any color you want.

The only thing I would do differently is to make a larger flue transition, to prevent smoke coming out the front on startup. Having a hole in your entry the same size as your flue isn't the best, but once the fire is going strong it should draw fine.

Good looking build.

I think the rule of thumb, to the extent that there is one, is that the area of the opening in the entry should be twice the area of the flue interior.

Six by nine isn't a standard flue size around here. What are you using?

Looks like a good product, but they all look round (cylindrical) to me. Did I misread something?

Well today was a good day


DAY 4
There are zero cracks that i can see inside the oven
there are some hair line cracks on the skim coat that i put on after the 16 gauge chicken fence, this skim coat was about 3/4- 1 inch thick in some places.

I want to see what will happen tomorrow before i put the ceramic blankets on.

I am hoping that this will insure me of huge cracks later down the road




Fired and cured oven at
ceiling 650
floor 486
Walls 539
outside 174

I think tomorrow i will try to fire it up to about 800-1000 on ceiling.

The heat tranfering from flame to bricks i feel is going well.

Chris
