Ok so I'm to the point of making a decision on my aesthetic finish.

I've framed out the walls and roof, i have a bit more framing to complete to make sure the structure is as rigid as possible:



I was originally thinking of covering the base with a stone finish, then stucco on the upper half. Anyone have recommendations on stucco on concrete board or finishes for the roof? I've seen slate roofs as well as traditional shingle. I'd love to hear from anyone that has used stucco for both roofing and siding. Thanks!

Hi Cloita,
We love seeing photos of people's oven adventures! We're glad that our forum has been a source of inspiration.

Enjoy this beautiful Fall season and we look forward to more pictures!

C
I did stucco on the oven wall enclosure and brick on the base. I paid the pro to do it after I mounted concrete board. Lots here have done it themselves though. I don't think you want stucco on the roof though. It is rough and would absorb moisture in a roof application. The folks who use it on domes have enough slope to make it work. From the looks of the pics, the roof will be almost flat?
My choice for flatter roofs that are visible would be in the sheet metals. standing seam or a flat sheet of copper if you want to splurge. Colors and designs are endless. Shingles on a flat roof will have problems. FWIW

Thanks Tex, I started calling local contractors for a stucco expert today. Hopefully going to hang the concrete board this weekend and then turn them loose on it next week.

Thanks for the info on the roof, I want to get copper involved somehow so here's my chance! The roof rises about 3" from back to front, so not exactly flat but close enough.

I had fun adding stucco on the walls of my WFO here in NW Indiana. I had to cross the border in Illinois to buy the stuff. It took me about eight bags... I added metal lath on to the cement board which really helped the stucco stay in place. I did not want do the stucco myself, but after getting 2 quotes for around $2,000 - $2,500 I decided it was a great time to learn. The only thing I contracted was to relay my brick pavers. I also added a steel roof...maybe in a few years I will change to slate for now it works.

Looks great!

Beautiful, thanks for the info. I fear the price tag will be the reason I learn how to stucco in the immediate future!
