Wish I had a friend like that. I used that brand CalSi on my build and it set me back a ben franklin, nice score. PS might want to consider home brew but with all the freebies you have the moola to splurge on heat stop 50

If I remember correctly the Heatstop is 2 powder components. Not bad or good, I just mention it because a few have not added the 2 powders together before mixing in the water and as I remember the 2 work together to harden...

@ scchris,

Got two bags of Hetstop50 dont really know about mixing yet. Does any others know if you need to mix two dry ingredients(heatstop50 and another dry mix) and water for the Heatstop50 to harden?

On the other hand I have been slackin' but have poured the new slab, extra rebar and 6 inches of concrete also put in a drain inside of the slab for water that may happen to get in or when cleaning out the underside of the stand.

set and glued the blocks (5 blocks high as some say they wish the oven floor was higher so they didnt have to bend so much to look in...Im 5'11" so figured five blocks was better), made angle iron tray for opening (lintel ?) and the stand is done!!

Next is the hearth. I am planning on a four inch concrete hearth and I have enough CalSil insulation for 4 inches of insulation under the cooking floor but dont know if I should just use two inches. (everyone says more insulation is better right?)

Heres some updated Pictures.

One of my Chocolate labs thinks he will be able to use the oven storage for a dog house! Humm not a bad idea since I have other wood storage nearby...we will see

Good looking stand...can't blame the dog for wanting to take possession. I am not an expert but if I had the material for 4 inches I would go with 4". Insulation is your friend.

I also went 5 blocks high. Someday...when my oven is finished I think I will like the extra height. Looks great, I look forward to seeing your progress.

Buggy,

Nice lookin base............Go with the 4" of CaSi, just stagger the seams between layers and you're golden.
